What does it mean when a man can't urinate after sex?

Urinating after sex can be helpful in preventing urinary tract infections (UTIs), especially in women. For men this is less of a concern. If you do this and notice that it doesn’t work out, it can’t help but make you wary. Why is it difficult for men to urinate for sex?

If you still have an erection, this is logical. In men, urination and the release of sperm occur through the same route – the urethra. This means that one function must stop for another to complete successfully. But if this is not the reason, then what? WomanEL will list other potential problems for you.

Why is it difficult for men to urinate after sex: prostate

A diagnosis of an enlarged prostate and prostatitis can lead to difficulty urinating. Not being able to pee is also one of the hidden signs that you have prostate cancer. Other symptoms of cancer include weak urine flow, frequent urination (especially at night), feeling like you can't empty your bladder, and blood in your urine or semen.

Infections can cause problems urinating after sex

UTIs, urethritis, and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) can also make it difficult to urinate after sex. UTIs and STIs can also cause burning urine after sex. Although UTIs are more common in women, men can get UTIs too. This is not specifically related to urination after sex; UTIs can make it difficult to urinate in general, as well as cause other symptoms such as frequent urination, feeling like you need to urinate all the time, painful urination, stomach pain, cloudy and smelly urine, blood in the urine, fever, and nausea.

Why is it difficult for men to urinate after sex: kidney stones

If you have kidney stones, the stone may be stuck somewhere in your urethra, ureter, or kidney, making it difficult to urinate. Ureteral stones can take the form of calcium stones, urate stones, struvite stones (composed of magnesium ammonium phosphate and calcium carbon apatite), and cystine stones. In addition to problems urinating, they can manifest in other symptoms such as severe pain in the upper back that comes and goes, discomfort in the lower abdomen, nausea, vomiting, bloody urine and a frequent urge to urinate.

Medicines and surgery can also cause urinary problems

Medicines such as antihistamines, tricyclic antidepressants, antispasmodics, opiates, blood pressure medications, antipsychotics, muscle relaxants, and NSAIDs can cause urinary problems. Just as some medications cause overactive bladder, others can interfere with the flow of urine.

Hip replacement surgery, spine surgery, and pelvic surgery can also make it difficult to urinate. Some may be caused by temporary swelling affecting the bladder area. But others have to do with anesthesia and how it can affect the spinal nerves and therefore the urination process.

Unlike an erect penis and problems with urination, most, if not all, of the conditions we have discussed here are associated with more than just the inability to pee after sex. Symptoms may occur at other times during the day.

However, if you notice the symptom of not being able to pee only after intimate time with your partner, observe and see if it goes away over time. If the problem persists for a long time after sex, you need to visit a urologist. As urologist and Dr. Karin S. Eilber explained to Cedars Sinai, “People get used to the weak stream and then suddenly stop urinating. If someone notices progressive difficulty urinating, it is important to be seen by a doctor.”

If your symptom persists for more than two days or is accompanied by back pain, fever, nausea, vomiting, bloody or cloudy urine, discharge from penis or frequent need to go to the toilet, these are signs that you are dealing with a health condition that requires diagnosis and treatment by a medical professional. Your doctor will evaluate the situation, better understand your history of urinary problems, and perform some tests, such as urine tests, a physical examination, and a digital rectal examination. Treatment will depend on the cause of the urine problems.

Sometimes simple back pain indicates prostate cancer. Recognize it early before it's too late.
