What can I do to stop urinary dribbling?

Depends: Dribbling is a sign of urinary obstruction. Most likely this is due to enlargement of the prostate. There could be other causes, however. This will depend on your age, usually. Older men have larger prostates and thus more obstruction. Infections can cause this. Urethral problems can cause this. Bladder pathology could cause this. I would recommend you see your pcp or urologist & get exam. ...Read more

Is urinary dribbling serious in a young girl or is it something that will go away as she matures?

Urinary "dribbling": I would ask first what you mean by urinary "dribbling". Does she have wetness in her panties that could be just due to poor wiping. Does she hold her urine until the last second and then have some overflow as she tries to make it to the bathroom? Because "dribbling" as I would define it is not normal in a prepubertal girl. Also need to check for UTI, chronic constipation and other possible causes. ...Read more

When I urinate and 'stop', urine frequently keeps dribbling out... For minutes after. It is embarrassing. Is it a prostate problem?

When I urinate and 'stop', urine frequently keeps dribbling out... For minutes after. It is embarrassing. Is it a prostate problem?

Possibly: This problem occurs in between 12 and 65% of men--at all ages, not just older men--depending on the study. It's most commonly embarrassing, not serious. Pelvic floor exercises --yes, the same kind women are taught! Or in yoga classes -- will help. That said, you ought to rule out a condition affecting the prostate, as you suggest. An (unpleasant) digital exam can tell alot, if not everything. ...Read more

I have post urine dribbling. What should I do to get it cured?

No Matter How You...: 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 can be diminished by manually compressing the urethra with your fingers/hand beginning in the bulb and extending to the tip after voiding. ...Read more
