What is normal Uroflow?
Average outcomes are based on age and gender. Typically, urine flow rate runs from 10ml to 21ml / second. Women range closer to ~15ml/s to 18ml/s. A weak or slow flow rate may be a sign that there is an obstruction at the bladder neck or in the urethra, an enlarged prostate, BPH, or a weak bladder.
How can I increase my urine flow?
- Be active. Lack of physical activity can make you retain urine.
- Kegel exercises. Stand at / sit on the toilet and contract/expand the muscle that allows you to stop and start the flow of urine.
- Meditation. Anxiety and stress cause some men to urinate more often.
- Double voiding. Pass urine more than once each time that you go to the toilet.
