Why does my urine split into two streams?

How does the flow of urine change with blockage?

During normal urination, the initial urine stream starts slowly. But it speeds up until the bladder is nearly empty. The urine flow then slows again until the bladder is empty. In people with a urinary tract blockage, this pattern of flow is changed, and increases and decreases more slowly.

What causes turbulence in the urine after urination?

Passage of small kidney stones that may be a small as sand or other debris in the urine such as kidney cells from tubular necrosis can also cause turbulence during urination and split urine stream.

What causes split urination hours after ejaculation?

Ejaculation: many experience split urination hours after they have had an ejaculation. This is said to be one of the most common causes of this condition. How does this happen? During ejaculation, semen is ejected through the male urethra to the outside of the body. As the semen passes through the urethra, some get stuck in the tube and get dry.

What causes a man to have a double stream of urine?

This is the most common cause of a double stream, says Dr. Parekh. It happens when the edges of the urethra get temporarily stuck together. The urethra is the tube that carries urine (and also semen, in men) out of the body. This sticky situation is often caused by dry ejaculate that doesn’t fully exit the urethra, gumming up the pipes.

Why does my pee come out in a straight line?

This goes back to her water hose analogy — the less pressure behind the stream, the less likely it will shoot out in a straight line. It should also be noted that obstructions within the urethra — like, for instance, dried semen — can cause your stream to divert, for obvious reasons, until they’re pushed out.
