I am a middle-aged man. When I go to the toilet, think that I've finished and have pulled up my trousers, I have a further dribble: wetting my clothes. What can I do?


This usually means the urethra(bladder tube) is not being emptied completely. "Milking" the urethra may help the problem. Wait a few seconds after emptying the bladder then with the fingertips of one hand behind the scrotum, apply gentle upward pressure. Keep the pressure on and move toward the penis. This milks the urine forward in the urethra where it can be emptied by gentle shaking in the usual way.
