Obstruction While Urinating is a condition that slows down or restricts the urine flow out of the bladder. The condition can cause urine to get accumulated in your body that can lead to abdominal pain, difficulty in urinating as well as other health conditions. The condition is more common in men than in women and can be due to enlarged prostate, scarring or the urethra, use of certain medications, bladder stones or prostate cancer.
