I've dealt with post-void dribble my entire life. The only reason I don't have permanent wet spots on my pants is the use of absorbent products (sometimes a folded up paper towel).

Recent problems aside, Is it possible that the muscles that would close off the urethra don't constrict as quickly in some people? I can constrict the muscles to squeeze out the last bit, but unless I hold that squeeze (a very difficult thing to do) I dribble some more right away.

I've done Kegel exercises till I'm blue in the face, but they don't seem to make any difference when it comes to post-void dribble.
