In many small advertisements, and even in some local radio stations, when talking about men’s health, the word “urinary bifurcation” must be mentioned. This makes many male friends very jealous. It seems that once a “bifurcated urine” appears, it means that they have a venereal disease or are not far from impotence.
In fact, “urinary bifurcation” is divided into two types: physiological and pathological.
Physiological urinary bifurcation can be seen in the following situations-
1. Abnormal posture of the penis: For example, if the underwear is too tight, or the penis is compressed by the thigh (for example, the Erlang leg is tilted) and urinating immediately, the urinary bifurcation will occur due to the temporary change of the urethral shape.
2. Hold the urine: Excessive pressure on the bladder causes urine to be ejected, and the impact force causes temporary changes in the urethra shape and urine bifurcation.
3. Forced urination during erection: the penis is not completely weak after sex, resulting in incomplete recovery of the urethra shape, and urine bifurcation will also occur.
Pathological bifurcations are mostly caused by the following diseases-
1. Urinary tract infection: Under the invasion of pathogenic microorganisms, the affected tissues and organs have inflammatory changes, and urethral mucosal exudates or prostate secretions increase. The secretion contains mucin. When the secretion flows to the external urethra, the water evaporates, and the mucin closes the adhesion of the external urethra. If the closed external urethral orifice is only partially opened under the impact of urine during urination, the urine thread will become thinner. When the closed urethral orifice opens in a sieve shape, the urine thread will bifurcate. In addition, after inflammatory changes in the urethra, the originally smooth urethra is no longer smooth, which is like crossing a stone in a stream, and the water flow will naturally bifurcate.
2. Urethral calculi: Small urethral calculi are stuck in the urethral stricture without being discharged, and the urine will bifurcate when passing through the calculi.
3. Prostatic hyperplasia: The compression of the urethra by the hyperplastic glands can also cause changes in the morphology of the urethra.
It is natural to ignore the physiological bifurcation, and it is not necessary to worry about the pathological bifurcation. For example, scar formation after urethritis, or prostatic gland hyperplasia, these are usually irreversible, and the resulting bifurcation of urine is naturally accompanied for life. so what? Whose shower does not have two water outlet modes yet! Do you think it’s such a rationale?
