Is it normal if a man has two streams of urine when urinating?

Normally, both men and women have one stream of urine that radiates straight when urine comes out. However, in some cases, not a few men complain of branching urine flow or are divided into two different parts. Is this dangerous and what causes it?

Is the flow of branching urine in men normal?

Split stream urination, or more commonly known as branching urinary flow, is a condition that is characterized when the release of urine during urination splits into two different directions. Most cases of branched urine are more common in men than women.

Although at first glance it seems strange, but actually this is a normal condition that can occur because the shape or anatomical arrangement of each man's urinary tract is not the same. That is why, there are men who can urinate through one stream because the urinary hole is only one, while different from other men who urinate fork because they have two streams of urine.

Another reason is because the flow of urine produced by the body is relatively low, making the passage of urine split into two parts. Usually, this happens because the urethra (the channel in which urine is released) has a slight constriction which results in not enough strong urine.

This narrowing in the urethral tract often occurs during ejaculation. Because, in addition to producing urine, the urethra also plays a role in the process of discharge of male semen containing sperm. Well, the discharge of semen is not always optimal, sometimes there is something stuck inside the urethra that dries. Because urine comes out through the same channel, it will be slightly blocked and divided into two directions.

Men with phimosis or penile foreskin are too tight, and have not been circumcised also likely to experience these two urinary tracts. Penile foreskin or prepuce in uncircumcised men will divide the urinary flow in two different directions.

On the other hand, this branching flow of urine can also be caused by prostatitis, urinary tract infections, and prostate enlargement.

There are also dangerous conditions for two urinary tracts

You must remain vigilant, because the flow of branched male urine can indicate a serious condition that requires immediate medical action. Take for example, congenital urethral fistula which is interpreted as the appearance of abnormal channels between the urethra and the skin of the penis.

One of the streams of urine originates normally from the urethra, while the other comes from an abnormal part or fistula in the urethra. Disorders in the process of urinating this one is indeed fairly rare and starts to appear since the baby is born.

In addition, there are also men who experience branching urine caused by the presence of two urethra or urethral duplication. Like congenital urethral fistulas, urethral duplication is also a birth defect since the baby. Slightly different from men in general, men with this problem have two urethra which causes urine flow to split into two directions when urinating.

Is there a way to treat it?

At first the doctor will diagnose your condition to find out the cause of branching urine flow. Diagnosis can be done by physical examination, bladder ultrasound, photocopying, and urodynamics. After finding the initial cause, the doctor will find it easier to determine the most appropriate treatment.

For men with narrowing of the urethral urethra, usually the action of urethroplasty or the making of a new urethral duct is most often recommended. Whereas for men who experience phimosis, giving steroid creams and lifestyle changes is considered the right way.
