This is one of the most common reasons why men and women experience pain after urinating. The urinary tract system is primarily composed of organs such as the bladder, kidneys, ureters, urethra and the prostate. These are the organs that help the body to eliminate the urine. So, when a person says he is suffering from UTI, then any one of the organs are affected. In case the bacteria has invaded the bladder, the person is bound to experience bladder pain after urination.
Pain after urinating in a man may indicate infection of the bladder or prostate. It can also be the result of a bladder spasm, or overactive bladder. An evaluation by a physician should include both a urinalysis and a physical exam. Depending on the findings, treatment and further testing may be appropriate.
