Proper peeing habits: Post-void dribbling is the leakage of a bit of urine after the penis is back in the pants. Boys can see a pediatrician to be sure the penis & testes are ok, but men should maybe see a urologist since adults can have more serious problems. If the penis is normal and the foreskin is not trapping urine, then be sure the penis hangs freely while peeing. Relax at the end to let the last drops come out.

Urinary incontinence: To fully evaluate this problem, I would recommend an examination of your abdomen and pelvis, as well as a digital rectal exam to check your prostate. A urinalysis is indicated, and perhaps some blood tests if the urine is normal. If there is an infection in your bladder or prostate, antibiotics will be necessary. If this is due to a bladder problem there are medications for that as well. Good luck
