Urine Drippling Issue

Posted , 4 users are following.

I've been suffering from this for about 3 months now and would really appreciate some guidance/a steer in the right direction.

When it started(the first time I've had any issues of this nature) it was diagnosed as a urine infection. I was given anti biotics for 7 days which calmed things down but didn't stop the dribbling. I went to a walk in centre who said there were still traces of infection and gave me more anti biotics.

Again this didn't clear the problem so just before those anti biotics finished I went to see a GP and their test showed it had all cleared up. I waited a couple of weeks as told to let things get back to normal but they didn't.

I was then given anti biotics for prostatis which didn't help either - I then had a PSA test that came back clear. Last week I had an ultra sound scan and flow rate test at hospital, again everything came back clear.

After that, my GP has effectively told me to 'live with it' and sought to dissuade me from any further, invasive investigations.

Apologies for the long post but I wanted to set out my story clearly. Is there anything I can do about this or will I just have to live with it now? If the latter is the case, are there any steps I can take to mitigate/self manage the condition?

Many thanks!

    It would help if you post your age, the infection you had and any previous problems. First thoughts is you have a weak urine valve and may be starting with an enlarged prostate. Suggest you research prostate and dripping problems on the net. You will hone in on what your exact symptoms are. Then look for kegal exercises, to strengthen your valve. There is plenty of info on the net.

      Hi, thank you for your response.

      I am 27 and had encountered no problems prior to this. I wasn't told the infection I had - the first set of anti biotics I had began with a T and the second lot were called nitrofurantoin

      Always ask what the infection is. Then go and research it. If you went to the right surgery, a GU surgery, many of the doctors are very poor at communicating the problems and the remedies. My advice: find out exactly what the infection is and research it yourself on the net. infections are caused, either by sexual transmission, or your immune system not functioning properly (usually from poor diet, unable to fuel it).

      Thanks again - I was initially diagnosed at a walk in centre so they only supplied me with limited information.

      I would imagine it would most likely be the latter as they has been no chance for transmission.

      I will do some further research and look into those exercises etc
