The male urethra is the channel for excreting urine and semen. When it is unblocked, the urine discharged is in a straight line. When there is resistance or obstruction at the external urethral orifice, the urinary line may bifurcate.
Urine bifurcations are usually divided into two types: one is that urine bifurcates immediately after it comes out of the urethral orifice, and the other is that urine bifurcates after it comes out of the urethral orifice for a period of time. The bifurcated shape may be streamline, scattered, and sprayed everywhere, usually accompanied by endless urine; It may also be in the form of water droplets, and urine may be in the form of long strips or lines of water, but it is not very obvious and not so violent.
In medicine, the causes of urinary bifurcations are generally divided into two categories:
Accidental or temporary urinary bifurcations (physiological urinary bifurcations): It is incidental or temporary, which is mostly unrelated to the disease.
Frequent or long-term urinary bifurcations (pathological urinary bifurcations): It is a frequent or long-term urinary bifurcations, which may be related to some diseases.
The etiology and symptomatic treatment of urinary bifurcations should be confirmed
If men have bifurcated urine, they need not be too anxious at first, because bifurcated urine is normal in most cases, such as holding urine for a long time, genital congestion, squeezing and so on, which may lead to increased pressure and promote the formation of eddy current, which is also easy to have bifurcated urine.
If long-term bifurcated urination or other accompanying symptoms occur, you need to be vigilant.
First of all, it is necessary to go to the urology department of a regular hospital for examination and treatment. Do not use drugs at will, so as not to interfere with the diagnosis and affect the curative effect.
Cause of pathological urinary bifurcation:
? 1. Typical sequelae of urethritis
It is common for people suffering from urethritis to have bifurcations and difficulty in urination due to the repeated attacks of inflammation and the formation of scar in part of the inner tissue of urethra after a long time, resulting in partial urethral stricture.
During the onset of acute urethritis, due to hyperemia and swelling of the urethra and excessive secretion, it will also cause bifurcated urination, which must be treated in time.
? 2. Some diseases of the genitourinary system
Such as urethritis, prostatitis, etc. In addition to bifurcated urine, this kind of disease is often accompanied by frequent urination, urgency of urination, pain in urination and other symptoms. The pathogenic factors are usually bacteria, chlamydia, mycoplasma, trichomonas, mold, etc.
? 3. Redundant prepuce
Partial stricture of the urethral orifice caused by phimosis or small stone obstruction in the urethra can also cause bifurcated urination. Sometimes, patients with prostatic hypertrophy may also have bifurcations in their urine. These cases should be treated as soon as possible after diagnosis!
