Question slight leakage of urine

I'm a 24 year old guy and uncut.. I have this problem where after I urinate and then I move around or sit down 5-10 minutes later, sometimes just a little urine will come out on its own -- i'm not controlling this. Has anyone else experienced this or know anything about this and how to solve it? Also after I ****, the hole is never completely dry even after flicking it a bit -- so I usually try my best to use a toilet instead of a urinal so I can wipe it off with some tissue.

Also my history--
I should also mention that for a long time, I've had tight foreskin, very hard to retract. I didn't even know until I was about 18 that my foreskin was supposed to come down. I saw a urologist who told me my only option was a circumcision .. I didn't want to do this so I looked at other alternatives and found a betamethasone cream that after a month of applying I was able to pull my foreskin down. After that I saw that my glans was very dirty (smegma?), and I clean it daily now. Its still a little tight but I can retract it fully when flaccid but when I'm erect, I can do it as well but its pretty uncomfortable.
Also, I notice that my glans is pretty sticky everytime I pull down my foreskin (the inside of my foreskin a little sticky too) .. If i leave it uncovered it seems to be okay after a while.

Hi bud--first of all, good move that you did not opt for the circumcision--it's rarely if ever necessary. A smart choice to try the other options.

On the '**** dribbles.' Normal here too--but it shouldn't be extreme. Since you've been to a doctor, the chances are good that any urinary tract infection has been ruled out, which is also good. One thing you might consider: when you take a leak, is your equipment 'fully free'?? By this I mean, if your penis is restricted--for example, if you wear briefs and pull yourself over the top of the waistband to leak (which isn't weird either considering that the fly in most briefs is impossible for a guy to actually use), that cuts off the free flow. I'd bet any uncut guy (me included) who has done this has experienced the dribbles later on, because you didn't completely empty the bladder out. As for needing to dab off some drops, that's not unusual either, especially if what I said is the case. One other factor, maybe too obvious to state, but anyway: do you pull your foreskin back at all to leak? If not, especially if you have overhang or a long (loose)foreskin, it's bound to hold a bit of urine--even just pulling it back a little should help. I know if I don't pull it back a little, I'll end up with some residual drops...

The daily cleaning you mention is a must--and some uncut guys will even do it more than once a day. We're all unique. And this includes the amount of smegma we produce (if much at all), etc. The "uncomfortable" sensation you mention isn't odd if you are not used to retracting--it will improve over time--just remember that you need to go easy and not hurt yourself. The "sticky" feel is also normal--it's your natural secretions and fluids. It could be that you've leaked some pre from an erection, some residual semen from an ejaculation, but most likely, it's just the normal male secertions that keep the foreskin and glans moist. If you're cleaning yourself regularly, it's nothing to worry about at all.

Outright incontinence, like the 2nd poster mentioned, usually is an older guy thing--but that's not the same as a few dribbles. Do the usual guy routine--shake it, milk it down, get out what you can--and opt for underwear taht won't restrict you. Nothing worse than a glaring wet spot on your any guy knows. But you should be just fine bud. Good luck.

steady - i've done a little research and i read that a possible cause is weak "pelvic floor" muscles. basically thats the muscle that you can use to stop yourself from urinating -- you know when you urinate you can forcefully stop the flow; thats the muscle. if you excercise that muscle hold it for 3 seconds at a time, for 10-12 times with some pauses in between it can help strengthen that muscle. Do this maybe 3-4 times a day. i think it has helped a little for me.

jim - thanks for the reply. i need to look into that urinary tract infection because i saw the urologist years ago .. i may go again soon. are there are any signs for the infection? I know the "lips" of the hole where I urinate has always been a little red .. is treatment just taking medicine like antibiotics type stuff?
I don't know, sometimes my glans is so sticky and the foreskin sticks to it too, I need to be carefull retracting it when urinating because I have at one time injured my glans and it bled slightly since my foreskin was stuck to it that tightly. if I apply water to my glans and foreskin, then it comes down smoothly.

Re: slight leakage of urine

I experienced the same problem in my late teens (being uncircumsized). I guess sometimes when I'd pee, no matter how much I shake or squeeze, eventually a little would dribble out (not right away). It didn't bother me until I noticed a smell late in the day so I went to the doctor. Because I'd dribble on my balls, then I'd sweat, by the end of the day there would be a slight odor (not real bad but I noticed it). I went to a doctor and he recommended a circumcision as my foreskin was too tight and that's why sometimes a little urine would get stuck. While I wasn't too crazy about going under the knife, I did and it solved everything (including the odor). I never realized how much you sweat in your groin area. See a doctor and share your concern.

Re: slight leakage of urine

I have this exact same problem too, and Im 18 M and cut, so it can't be anything to do with having foreskin. It kinda dribbles for a few minutes after peeing, which is bad cos the small amount of urine dries on underwear and smells real bad. I think it must be common, maybe something to do with pelvic floor muscles.

Re: slight leakage of urine

I used to have that problem and not just with urine, but semen too and here's how I stopped it from happening. For stopping urine drips after you're done going and have squeezed out all you can do the following: 1. Reach under your scrotum (between the anus and start of your scrotum) and push inward firmly. This should push any remaining urine into your penis. 2. Then grip your penis near the base and squeeze while pulling forward toward the head in a milking fashion. This will expell the urine and you probably won't get any more dripping and if you do it won't be more than maybe a drop or two when you walk around.

As far as semen goes once it's a little tougher. Once you've lost your erection do the same two steps as above, but then add one additional step. After you think you've gotten it all out, do 3 or 4 deep knee bends, then repeat steps 1 and 2 and you'll get a little more out. That should get you to where you don't drip afterward, or if you do maybe only a drop or two.
