As men begin to age, a normal consequence of the aging process is for them to have prostates that have begun to enlarge which then leads to problems with the urethra and also problems with urination.
In effect, when the prostate enlarges it causes contraction or squeezing of the urethra and blocks urine from flowing freely and this condition is referred to, in medical terminology, as benign prosthetic hyperplasia or BPH. Once BPH affects a man, it results in frequent urination at all times of the day, though more specifically at night – and it also leads to difficulty in urination.
