A.

A slow urine stream is more common in men as they age. (Finally, they have something worse than we do!) This is not a common complaint among menopausal or perimenopausal women.

Some possible causes of a slowed stream could be either "structural" such as bladder outlet obstruction, or a neurologic condition leading to a problem initiating urination. If this slowed stream persists, you should consult your GYN or a urologist. You may need additional testing from a uro-gynecologist or urologist to get the most accurate diagnosis.
