As we don't know your sex, I assume u r man and it's most common problem after 50 or so. May worse as you get older due to mostly benign prostatic hypertrophy. Prostate enlarge as age increases. Go to urologist- doctor for care of prostate. Drink no water after 6 PM. Infection after blockage of urethra is possible, doc can help very well. Once treated well, no problem. Prostate can be shrinked, CEALIS 5 mgms daily plus FLOMAX 0.4 mgms at bed time can help. Orange juice, cranberry juice gives vit C, can help, but pl go to see doctor soon. God bless you. In China, 5000 years old saying is--- Most Pleasurable experience for a man, after 50 years of age, is evacuation of bladder.
