Hello
Welcome to the Just Answer Website.I need the following information from you, so that I can provide you the best answer:

It's not me, but my partner. maybe a couple of weeks? There is no pain or blood. He just mentioned he finds it more frequent. He feels like he has to urinate then a little or nothing comes out.

Thanks for the info given.The symptoms you have described about your partner is due to a condition called prostatitis it means inflammation of the prostate gland.Acute prostatitis is usually caused by a bacterial infection of the prostate gland. Following tests are required: digital rectal examination (DRE),prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test,rectal ultrasound and prostate biopsy,urine flow.

 

Treatment includes a four-week course of antibiotics,anti inflammatory medications.So I advice for him to consult urologist for examination & prescription medication accordingly.Please feel free to ask if you have any other question.

Thanks doctor, could there be other causes perhaps?
Expert:  Dr. Charles replied 5 years ago.
Other less likely causes are calculi(stone formation), urinary tract infection,cystitis.But most likely & most probably this is inflammation of the prostate gland. It is completely curable with course of antibiotics. So I advice for him to consult urologist ASAP.
