Frequent Urination from Enlarged Prostate causing trouble, try Homeopathy

Enlarged prostate causes many urinary problems and frequent urination is one of the most commonly occurring complaint from enlarged prostate. Prostate gland is a walnut size gland that surrounds the first part of urethra underneath the bladder in males. It secretes prostatic fluid and also functions to expel semen during ejaculation. The enlargement of prostate gland is very common in elderly males (between age of 50-60 yrs).

The enlarged prostate may push against the bladder and urethra and lead to an urge to pass urine even when the bladder is not full. In most cases, frequent urination occurs usually at night and the person has to rise several times at night to pass urine. Even after passing urine several times, there is a sensation of the bladder not being empty. Besides frequent urination, other complaints that can occur from enlarged prostate include urgency to urinate, straining to initiate urine, weak urine stream, interrupted urine, dribbling at the end of urine and burning/pain while urinating.
