What is Urinary Retention?
- Urinary retention in men happens when you cannot empty all the urine from your bladder. It can happen suddenly, and you may feel bladder pressure and have to strain to urinate. It can also develop gradually, and you may be unaware that a large amount of urine remains in your bladder after you urinate.

If you’ve ever had a urinary tract infection (UTI), you will probably do anything to avoid another one! A UTI is an infection of the urinary system, which is made up of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra. Urine is normally sterile, but UTIs are caused when bacteria enter the urine. This can lead to a bladder infection (cystitis) or a kidney infection (pyelonephritis).
