Top 9 Homeopathic Medicines For Bladder Outlet Obstruction

Bladder Outlet Obstruction (BOO) or Obstructive Uropathy refers to a urinary condition resulting from blockage of the neck at the bottom of the urinary bladder. Here the neck is the area where the urinary bladder joins the urethra. In this condition, urine flow is blocked either partially or completely varying on a case-to-case basis. Bladder Outlet Obstruction is more common in men as compared to women. Persons aged above 65 years are at greater risk of developing this condition though it can also occur in developing fetuses, babies, and children. Bladder Outlet Obstruction can arise from various causes. These include scar formation in the urethra/urethral stricture, stones in the bladder, enlargement of the prostate gland (BPH), tumours in the bladder/rectum/uterus/cervix and severe constipation. Other causes include pelvic muscles spasm (spasm is involuntary contraction of the muscles), inguinal hernia (bulge in the groin area due to pushing of abdominal contents like a part of the intestine via a weak spot in the abdominal muscles), use of certain medicines like anti-histamines and medicines to treat overactive bladder, cancer of urethra, vagina or cervix, prostate cancer and pelvic organ prolapse. Bladder outlet obstruction causes many types of symptoms. These includes difficulty in initiating urine, weak urine stream, straining to pass urine, frequent urge to pass urine, urgency (sudden urge) to pass urine, interrupted (intermittent urine stream), sensation of incomplete emptying of the bladder, dribbling at the end of urination, pain while passing urine and pain in the lower abdomen. Leaving Bladder Outlet Obstruction untreated carry a risk of many complications. These include Urinary Tract Infection (UTI), Urinary Incontinence (involuntary passage of urine on its own), developing bladder stones and kidney failure.
