Post-Micturition Dribble (Post-Void or Urinary dribble) is a lower urinary tract symptoms that can affect men of all ages particularly after prostate surgery. As always, follow the bladder retraining program. In addition try these techniques to decrease dribbling after urination due to residual urine trapped inside the urethra:
- After voiding, contract the pelvic floor muscles (Kegel) 4-5 times to squeeze out urine from the urethra. Depending on the strength of the pelvic floor muscles, this may take some time to achieve a satisfactory result.
- After voiding, perform urethral milking by placing fingers and flat hand under the scrotum and gently push up and forward to the base of the penis. Perform 2-3 times.
- After voiding, do not put penis immediately into trousers. Once or twice slightly stretch the penis and shake gently. Then perform 4-5 Kegels.
You may need to try them all before you find the technique that works for you. Remember, you are NOT performing a Kegel during urination! These techniques should be performed once the urine stream has ended.
