What is an Urinary Retention ?

When you have urinary retention, your bladder may still feel full after you urinate. This is because it’s not empty all the way. You may feel like you still need to go urgently, even after urinating a large volume of liquid.

When this starts happening suddenly and you can’t urinate, it’s called acute urinary retention. If it lasts a long time and you can still urinate but not completely empty your bladder, it’s known as chronic urinary retention.

Acute urinary retention — comes on quite suddenly and can cause great discomfort or pain. With acute urinary retention, a person cannot urinate at all (even if they have a full bladder) and is a potentially life-threatening medical condition requiring immediate emergency treatment.

What main causes urinary retention?

Urinary retention can happen for several different reasons. These causes can include:

  • A blockage to the way urine leaves your body.
  • Medications you’re taking for other conditions.
  • Nerve issues that interrupt the way your brain and urinary system communicate.
  • Infections and swelling that prevent urine from leaving your body.
  • Complications and side effects of medications given to you for a surgical procedure.

Urinary Rentention / Incontinence Treatment

You should take a few simple steps to improve the symptoms of the condition you are experiencing. Changing your lifestyle, losing weight, doing pelvic floor exercises, or training your bladder can improve your condition. Depending on your case history, our consultants may also prescribe certain medications to you. Urinary incontinence can be treated with surgical procedures if non-surgical options are ineffective. In the case of frequent urination, our healthcare experts may recommend a sling procedure to reduce pressure on the bladder, pelvic floor surgery for prolapse, retropubic suspension, or tension-free vaginal tape surgery.
