First of all, sorry about the subject of my message, haha, i don't know the scientific term for this condition. I'm a girl, so it's a little bit embarassing. Every time i pee, i would pee alot, but then after i finished, i would sit for one or two minute and i suddenly felt another urge to pee again. So it's like i have to pee for two times before i completely empty my bladder. Is it dangerous? Well, it doesn't happen all the time, but most of the time.

Hi Aby Wu,

I believe what you are referring to is post-void dribble. If you weren't to continue voiding and just get up, you would probably wet your panties a bit. This is sometimes caused a weakened pelvic floor and you can try doing some pelvic floor exercises: https://www.empowher.com/vaginal-prolapse/content/kegel-muscle-exercises-aka-pelvic-floor-muscle-training

If the sensation that you need to continue voiding is accompanied by a burning sensation and constantly urinating very little, then this could be a symptom of a UTI. https://www.empowher.com/condition/urinary-tract-infection/definition

You can try performing the Kegel's (or pelvic floor exercises) for a while, and wait to see for improvement or you will have to pay a visit to your gynecologist if you do not want to wait to find out.

Best of luck,
