As the bladder does not empty properly therefore it can lead to frequency and urgency of passing urine.

Some men can pick-up infection while going with dirty women who suffer from various sexual diseases. They can have serious infection as well as enlargement of the prostate. It is important therefore to clear the infection with antibiotics followed- up with appropriate herbs to treat the recurrent infection.
