Urology/Urine leak


Respected doctor,
     I am a 19 years old male.  My problem is that after urinating, some urine still stays and gets leaked when I go out of bathroom and  sit somewhere else. It produces nasty smell as well This problem is for a long time. Please help me solve this problem doctor.


You have post void dribbling.  This is common as after voiding there is a little urine that remains in a small pocket in the bulbous urethra just outside the sphincter.  This often dribbles out over the next few minutes after voiding.

The best solution is to press the urine out before you leave the toilet.  Press your fingers under the base of the scrotum and then move them forward towards the base of the penis.  This will express the little bit of urine that would otherwise dribble out.
