Hello. Thank you for posting.

A weak urine stream means difficulty in getting a urine flow. This generally occurs in older men due to an enlarged prostate. They can have problems with dribbling, starting urinating and a slow or weak urine stream. Infection in the urinary tract or prostate could also lead to weak urine stream in men.

Urinary problems are also known as urinary hesitancy. This is a disorder which can affect both men and woman. Some people do not notice their symptoms until the problem becomes severe. A delay in diagnosis often results in complete inability to pee known as urinary retention. So, it's important to see your doctor for an evaluation, especially if the condition does not resolve or becomes worse. Some causes can be UTI (urinary tract infection), certain medications or an underlying medical condition such as diabetes, to name a few.
