Are you always going or rushing to the toilet?
Do you find it hard to get started or have slow flow?
Do you dribble after you’ve finished urinating?
Difficulty controlling and emptying your bladder are frustrating and embarrassing problems that can have a huge impact on your life. You might find yourself feeling embarrassed at the urinal, arranging your daily routine around where the nearest toilets are or waking up exhausted because your bladder has interrupted your sleep.
More men than you think experience these bladder problems, especially as they get older. Often the main cause is prostate enlargement but there can also be other contributing factors. You don’t have to live with it or suffer in silence. In most cases, bladder problems can be better managed.
