Urine pressure
When I urinate, the pressure is so weak and I take a long time urinating because the urine comes out so slow. I sometimes get embarassed when other guys come and go in public toilets while I am standing there struggling to finish urinating. Why?

Hi Joiwi
You probably have a very common problem called prostate hypertrophy. Your GP will be able to examine you ( be warned it is a bit uncomfortable but not sore) and there are many effective medications you can use like Proscar and alpha blockers.
