Can you say if it could it cause frequent urination if I don't shake the dribbles off after I pee?

Post Void Dribbling: Post void dribbling (pvd) results from incomplete contraction of the muscles around the urethra (urine channel). This results in urine that, with movement, can leak out.
This leakage is not an indication of overactive bladder and will not lead to frequency of urination.
