Urology/Problem urinating while defecating


Hello sir,
recently for the past two days i have problems starting urination while defecation. weak urine flow occurs and thin urine comes where i feel no force in my urine,seems like i dont have control over my urination just like a numbness sort of feeling. when i push bowel a bit urine drips out like droplets. it started when i forced to clear all my stools and urination stopped at that point.then the whole day i didnt felt a urge after a lot of intake of water,but urination did occurred 4 times after going into toilet,but the stream was slow. what can you think of my condition?


If you are constipated or there is a large amount of stool in the rectum, this can put pressure on the prostate and cause some temporary problems with urination.  I suspect this is your problem rather than a urinary tract issue.  Check with your local physician to be sure about this.
