Action point


Men suffering from incontinence and post-urinating dribbling (small amount of urine leaking after urinating) can prevent embarrassment by ensuring all urine is out of the urethra by "milking the urethra".

Place the fingers 3cm below the scrotum and gently push upwards along the penis. This will ensure the last drops of urine are drained.

Visit our Incontinence Centre for more on managing this condition.
