    i am 55 year old man and it seems like my urine flow is becoming slower lately. I also sometimes feel a pain in my perineum after I urinate. What could cause this?

    At the age of 55, slow urinary flow is most likely related to prostate enlargement that is causing a partial blockage of the lower urinary tract.  Less likely, but also possible because of the pain in the perineum is that you may have porostatitis.  You need to be evaluated by a urologist.
