While severe urinary symptoms associated with an enlarged prostate may require medication or surgery, mild to moderate symptoms can typically be managed with a number of strategies and lifestyle changes. Here are some ways to reduce the urinary discomforts so that you can take your sweet time finding a bathroom.
Research shows that men with BPH who walk three times a week show significantly improved urinary symptoms.
If you feel like you still need to go after you've already gone, try double-voiding. Urinate, then wait a few minutes, and go again.
Carrying around extra weight can worsen symptoms of BPH. Losing weight helps improve bladder function and control.
Kegel exercises can help you better control your bladder and empty it completely. Contract the muscle that stops your urine flow, and hold it for 10 seconds. Repeat ten times. Perform Kegels three times a day for the best results.
