Urinary Frequency: If it's a physiologic problem and not from infection or diabetes (insipidus or mellitus where the thirst is excessive), improve the bladder capacity and/or the relax the detrusor muscle, which contracts when urinating to squeeze out urine.

A 22-year-old male asked:

What can be done to stop dribble after urination? What are the causes? There are always a few drops which end up being released after the main stream.

Post-void dribbling: Post-void dribbling is the leakage of a bit of urine after the penis is back in the pants. A man can see his primary care doctor or a urologist, since men can have prostate problems. If the penis is normal and the foreskin is not trapping urine, then be sure the penis hangs freely while peeing. One should relax at the end to let the last drops come out. Women who drip have different issues.

Many possibilities.: Trouble with urination can be grouped into disorders of the bladder's ability to expel urine or obstruction of the outflow tract. Bladder problems include muscular disorders, diverticuli, diabetes, & neurologic problems. The most common cause of obstruction in men is an enlarged prostate, but strictures and blockage by stones can occur. If you're having difficulty, i recommend you see a urologist.
