Here 59 Male... Over the past few months I've been getting

This answer was rated:

Hi there,Paul here 59 Male... Over the past few months I've been getting up five and six times at night to go for a pee. One night I got up six times in one hour. I usually pass a good volume. When I waken up at night and feel the need to pee I always get up because I'm afraid I will pee in my sleep.I waken up in the mornings totally wrecked after wakening to pee so many times during the night.In the past two weeks I have also had some difficulty achieving an erection.I know I should probably go to my GP but I'm somewhat embarrassed about this.Can you offer any advice please?Many thanksPaul

When you urinate:

  • Do you have to wait before urine comes out?
  • Is it a good stream?
  • Any blood in your urine?
  • Do you dribble after finishing?
Customer: replied 15 days ago.
No, I don't have to wait before urine comes out.
Yes it is a good stream although not as powerful as it was when I was younger.
There is no sign of blood in the urine.
No excessive dribble.

Does it hurt when you urinate?

Have you had any blood tests for a PSA?

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
No it dosen't hurt when I urinate.
I had PSA included in blood tests for past ten years, always negative. Last blood test was 24/01/19 PSA was 2.03

As you have urinary symptoms I would advise that you need to see your GP for a prostate examination along with an updated PSA and a test of your urine with a sample. Your GP will then decide a course of action.

I hope this helps
