Post-void dribbling
Classification and external resources
ICD-9 788.35

Post-void dribbling or post-micturition dribbling is the phenomenon where urine remaining in the urethra after voiding the bladder slowly leaks out after urination. A common and usually benign complaint, it may be a symptom of urethral diverticula, prostatitis and other medical problems.[1]

Men who experience dribbling, especially after prostate cancer surgery, will choose to wear incontinence pads to stay dry. Also known as guards for men, these discreet incontinence pads conform to the male body, protecting them where they need it most. Some of the most popular male guards are from Tena, Depends, and Prevail.[2] Simple ways to prevent dribbling include: strengthening pelvic muscles with Kegel exercises, changing position while urinating, or pressing on the perineum to evacuate the remaining urine from the urethra. [3] Sitting down while urinating is also shown to alleviate complaints: a meta-analysis on the effects of voiding position in elderly males with benign prostate hyperplasia found an improvement of urologic parameters in this position, while in healthy males no such influence was found. [4]
