Question: Leaking a bit of urine after urination.

 JLS1 - Tue Oct 13, 2009 5:57 pm

22 year old male, one sexual partner with condoms during intercourse, no past health issues, currently on Prozac, 40mg/day, for anxiety.

For a long time (long enough that I can't remember when it started,) after urination I've found that if I don't gently squeeze my penis after urinating, it will drip/leak a bit afterward. Even still, I've found that it will leak a drop or two, even after spending 15-20 seconds trying to make sure it's empty.

Additionally, sometimes (not terribly often,) at what seems like complete random, I will still feel like I have to urinate after going. If I try again, I can usually go a little bit more, but it isn't "vital" that I go - by that, I mean that it will not leak out any more than usual if I "hold it" in instead of going.

No pain/abnormal pressure, no discoloration, no blood, no odd smells.

I'm not sure if either of these are normal, and I'm a bit embarrassed to ask friends/family. I will not have medical insurance for the next three months, so I would like to only have to visit the doctor if it is 100% necessary since I will have to pay entirely out of pocket.

Thank you for your time,

User avatar Hi,
This may be fairly normal but sometimes can be pathological as well.
Any History of STD's? - in some cases of post gonococcal strictures, this symptom may occur.
If you never had STD's, most probably, this is likely to be temporary.Some pelvic floor exercises may be useful.Good luck!
