Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 8 months ago.

for men, an enlarged prostate gland can often cause poor urine flow and frequent urination and incomplete bladder emptying.

you should see a urology doctor for evaluation of your prostate and bladder

doing kegel exercises to help squeeze your pelvic floor muscles could help decrease urinary leakage.

medications like flomax or hytrin can help your urine flow be better as well.
