The hallmark of the neurogenic hypothesis is abnormal processing of afferent signals, possibly the result of altered central inhibitory pathways, which cause sensitization of afferent nerves, activation of the micturition reflex, and induction of unstable detrusor contractions (12).
The symptoms and signs of transmigrated IUD encompass undesired conception, chronic lower abdominal pain, burning micturition 6, vaginal discharge, clinical spectra of peritonitis and missing IUD strings on per speculum vaginal examination.
The inguinal bladder herniation should be considered when the female patients are presented with micturition difficulty.
We used ganglion impar block to treat persistent postoperative painful micturition and perineal pain following surgery for anal fistula cancer with excellent results, leading to a significant decrease in the patient's opioid requirements.
The patients were considered as having PPUR when there was no micturition within 6 hours of delivery.

The average urethral caliber in an adult male that is compatible with normal micturition is 6 mm or greater [11].
found that fifty percent of patients with BOO had overactive bladder (OAB).1 OAB, a clinical syndrome caused by abnormal afferent signals and detrusor overactivity, used to be called unstable bladder, the main symptoms of which were urgent urination, uroclepsia, frequent micturition, increased urination at night, and it would seriously influence patients' life quality.2,3 Study showed that the more obvious prostatic median lobe hyperplasia was and more serious BOO symptoms were,4 the severer OAB symptoms were; the reason why OAB occurred was secondary changes of stability, elasticity and sensitivity of bladder which was caused by BOO.
