I don't know how long this has been going on for to be honest, for I have a lousy memory and it's something that has grown more frequent over time. I recall that I've had it as far back as a few years ago but it was rather rare then. Now I can have it 2-3 times a week which may not seem like much (which is partly why I haven't gone to a doctors yet, especially as I am in the middle of finding a doctor that isn't truely incompetent and senile and am waiting to join a new surgery!) Anyway, here goes!

I find it extremely hard to pass urine sometimes when I go to the toilet. It's not all the time and I know it's there because I can feel it and if I sit there for a while and try to urinate by flexing the muscle or something down there it comes out in a really slow flow. I'm not in any pain at all but I'm wondering if it's any cause for concern. I've been on tramadol (600mg p/d) since september for a broken back and I've been on the contraceptive injection since january. I'm 19 years of age and besides the broken back aching which prevents extensive exercise, I still get about and am not disabled in any way.

I've looked online but all of the websites are about prostate problems and I'm pretty sure that's not my problem :p So if anyone can give me some ideas so that I might have a better idea of what I'm dealing with I'd be grateful!
