Urinary symptoms of incontinence, urinary tract diseases, urinating hesitancy, and frequent urination have all been reported.

COVID-19 infections and vaccines for it have been linked to urinary and prostatic complications.

A recent Hong Kong study found that among men who were being treated for baseline lower urinary tract symptoms, those who have had a COVID-19 infection were at a greater risk of having an enlarged prostate, which can lead to a greater chance of urinary tract infections, urine retention, and hematuria (urinating blood).

“Male patients infected with SARS-CoV-2 are more likely to have deterioration of LUTS (lower urinary tract symptoms). This association is not without biological plausibility,” the authors concluded.
