I am 18, fit and in good shape
My entire life i have had issues with urinating frequently, having to go multiple times a day (10+ maybe, i don't keep a record) and the volume is little ( roughly 100 - 200ml i think). I don't drink excessively, and don't drink energy or caffeine drinks.
About a year ago, maybe longer i noticed my flow was poor, at times stopping completely. It would then start up again randomly as though it got unblocked. I have noticed in the last few months, maybe longer that i strain when i urinate, to try and increase flow. a couple weeks ago i urinated a bit of blood throughout one day. ( evidence of stricture?). Could this be from trauma? i ride mountainbikes and motorbikes.
I don't know if my seemingly small bladder capacity is linked to my poor flow. And with research on strictures i can't see any long term solution a doctor could prescribe me apart from frequent dilations - which i could perform myself with the equipment i think. ( i don't like going to the doctors unless i need to, but maybe i need to? see a urologist?).
The frequency of urination impacts my day to day life, the flow merely the time it takes - i can live with it but it doesn't feel good.
Any suggestions or feedback would be great, cheers
