Post-Prostatectomy Dribbles - How About A Penile Clamp?
Whether it’s a little leak or a downpour, millions of men around the world suffer from urine leakage. This can be caused by a multitude of problems: prostate surgery, weak pelvic floor, nerve damage, the list goes on…
1 in 4 men suffer from urinary incontinence during their lives. However, it’s not something that you have to put up with! The concept of a ‘penile clamp’ may seem ludicrous to most men, but it’s better than you think! Read on to learn how one can help you!
What are Penile Clamps?
A Penile Clamp is a small reusable device, worn externally, that is used to manage urinary leakage in a lot of men. Mainly, it is used after prostate surgery when men tend to lose control of their bladder; around 10-15% of men experience urinary incontinence after prostate cancer treatment.
Clamps tend to work well for active men who are looking to use a discreet product to manage their incontinence.
How Does A Penile Clamp Work?
The Penile Clamp works by using pressure to prevent urine from leaking from the bladder. It can do this by compressing or squeezing the penis, by either acting as a clamp that is closed over the penis, as a strap that surrounds the penis, or as an inflatable cuff.
Although this form of treatment does not provide a cure for incontinence, it can help patients to manage their urine leakage.
What are the Advantages of Using a Penile Clamp?
In a 2015 study, research found that "The clamp was good for short vigorous activities like swimming/exercise; it was the most secure, least likely to leak, most discreet". Other advantages include:
- Decrease or eliminate pad usage
- Great for exercise
- Manages stress incontinence
- Prevent leakage
- No fear or embarrassment from leaks
When Shouldn’t You Use a Penile Clamp?
You may want to check with a health advisor before using a penile clamp if:
- You suffer from urge incontinence
- Your skin is easily damaged
- You have poor hand control
- You have poor memory or mental function

Reviews for the Dribblestop – Male Urinary Incontinence Clamp
Allen – Problem Solved
“This product arrived today and to be quite honest i had convinced myself that the description and reviews were too good to be true. Following my prostatectomy and after the catheter was removed I found the first gush of uncontrollable urine quite distressing. And so, it continued.
The Dribblestop works. It was easy to fit, and I found the default setting perfectly comfortable. A new pad was fitted at the same time and 10 hours later still perfectly dry. I am now looking forward to having days out without the worry of pads and having an embarrassing accident thanks to Dribblestop! Worth every penny!”
Clay – Gives You Confidence
“I use Dribblestop on evenings when I am out late dancing, it sure gives me confidence. It is normally late in the evening after a long day that I feel I seem to lack total control of my bladder since my radicle prostatectomy. It was my specialist nurse that suggested the clamp and it has really helped for when I am on my feet a lot during the day, then dancing in the evening.”
