Post-void Urinary Dribbling

Post-void urinary dribbling is a medical phrase that describes a condition in which a person involuntarily urinates after passing pee voluntarily. The leading cause is when the involved muscle does not contract after an act of urination. Urinary dribbling is not gender-specific, although it is more prevalent in men. Muscle-strengthening activities, such as kegel exercises, can aid in muscle control.
