Why Do I Leak After Peeing?

Why do I leak a little after peeing?

If you struggle with a little leakage after you’ve used the bathroom, you’re not alone: Around 30 percent of women experience this type of urinary incontinence, known as overflow incontinence or “after-dribble.” You might feel as though you can’t empty your bladder completely, or you might notice a slight trickle after you think you’ve finished urinating.

It’s frustrating (and uncomfortable!) but luckily, there are some things you can do to help slow that flow.

How do I stop leaking after urination?

There are medical treatments available for this type of urinary leaking. Four common solutions your doctor might suggest are:
 
Medications.
There are some medications available that can help your bladder hold more urine, slow the feeling of urgency, and improve your ability to empty your bladder all at once.

Botox.
An injection of Botox in the lining of your bladder can help keep leakage in after peeing.

Injections by your urethra.
The urethra is the little tube that carries urine out of your body. Sometimes, having a little extra support there can help stop leaking.

Bladder sling surgery.
In some cases, bladder leakage could make you a candidate for a bladder sling. This is a bit of mesh—either synthetic or made of human tissue—placed under or around your urethra to give it more support and help prevent leaking.

Tips to manage a leaky bladder

If you’re reluctant to try the solutions mentioned above, there are some other tactics you can try to manage a leaky bladder and potentially stop the leaking of urine after peeing.

Leak proof protective undies.
Our first suggestion is to purchase some leak proof protective undies that will keep you comfortable and dry. With an absorbent core, Proof Leakproof Underwear are the perfect backup as you work to strengthen your pelvic floor and the muscles around your urethra. They help fight odor and leave you feeling dry all day without the fuss and bulk of a panty liner.

Diet changes.
Often, what you eat or drink can impact the body’s ability to hold urine in or get it all out when you want to. Try avoiding or reducing these things when you plan your menu:

- Alcohol
- Artificial sweeteners
- Caffeine
- Carbonated drinks
- Chocolate
- Citrus fruits
- Tomatoes
- Corn syrup
- Honey
- Spicy foods

Pelvic floor exercises.
These are always a good idea! As we get older, our pelvic floor muscles tend to get weaker (especially if you have given birth!). To do Kegel exercises, pretend you are sitting on something small, like a marble, and tighten the muscles in your pelvis as if you are lifting the marble. Hold it for a few seconds, relax, then lift and hold again.

You can also meet with a pelvic floor specialist to give you more ideas on good exercises to strengthen your muscles.

Healthy weight loss.
After consulting with your doctor, you might find that reaching and maintaining a healthy weight will give your bladder a better chance at emptying completely.
