After Dribble

After Dribble

After dribble (post-micturition dribble or PMD as it’s known medically) is losing a few drops after finishing at the toilet.

What causes dribbling after urination for men?

It tends to be caused by the muscles surrounding the urethra not contracting properly, leaving urine in the tube when the bladder feels empty. This then ‘drains’ out into clothing after finishing in the toilet. The underlying issue is typically a weakened pelvic floor muscle and with exercises, this can be significantly improved. Information and instructional videos on male pelvic floor exercises can be found here.

TENA also has a range of products (link to TENA for Men) specifically designed for men to manage this issue while exercises take affect. Shaped like a cricket box, these discreet pads fit neatly into the front of underwear to catch any unexpected dribbles.
