  • Inability to Urinate
    If you find that you can't urinate at all, seek immediate medical attention, as this is a problem that requires treatment right away. Some men may not even realize they have BPH until they can't urinate at all. Emergency treatment is needed, as this severe BPH symptom can cause damage to the bladder, urethra, and kidneys. Your healthcare provider may need to thread a tube (catheter) through your urethra into your bladder to help drain it.
  • Incomplete Emptying of the Bladder
    If you have finished urinating but still feel like the bladder is not empty, it may be a sign of BPH. This may happen because the flow of urine is blocked due to BPH. It can also occur when the bladder muscle is not able to contract properly. This results in some of the urine remaining in the bladder. If you are having this BPH symptom, talk to your healthcare provider, as this symptom can lead to urinary tract infections and damage to the kidneys.
  • Incontinence
    Incontinence is another common symptom of BPH, but what is it? Urinary incontinence means that you pass urine when you don't mean to. It can range from dribbling urine now and then to large amounts of urine passing involuntarily. While this can be an embarrassing symptom, don't just dismiss it as a normal part of aging. There are a number of ways to treat this and significantly improve it, so talk to your healthcare provider if you are having problems with urinary incontinence.
  • Is Beta-Sitosterol Safe?
    People with sitosterolemia, a rare genetic condition, should avoid beta-sitosterol products. This eMedTV article includes other beta-sitosterol safety warnings and precautions, and further explains who should avoid consuming beta-sitosterol products.
  • Is It Just Age?
    Are BPH (an enlarged prostate) and ED (erectile dysfunction) related? Previously, it was thought that age was the only link between the two conditions. However, emerging research clearly suggests that men with BPH are more likely to have ED. It's not entirely clear why this might be, although several theories have been suggested.
  • Is It the Drugs?
    ED is a side effect of some BPH medications. However, this is not necessarily a side effect that you must simply accept. There are several different BPH medications, some of which are not likely to cause ED, and even some that can treat ED and BPH at the same time. Similarly, some (but not all) BPH medications can diminish sex drive and cause problems with ejaculation. Don't be afraid to discuss these side effects with your doctor.

Try to spread out your fluid consumption throughout the day. If you get the urge to urinate, go for it! Also, try to use the bathroom when you have the chance, even if you don't necessarily feel the need to urinate.
  • Pain With Urination
    Not only can pain with urination be a sign of BPH, but it can also be an indication that there may be a urinary tract infection. Specifically, if you notice burning while you urinate or see blood in your urine, contact your healthcare provider right away. Pain can also occur when urine collects in the bladder and causes irritation. Your healthcare provider can help determine the cause of your pain and recommend treatment options.
