What to Expect: Urethral Dilation

What is a urethral dilation?

  • During a urethral dilation, the doctor will slowly stretch the inside the urethra, the tube that exits the bladder.
  • This may be performed to help with repeated urinary tract infections, pain in the urethra, or other conditions.
  • This procedure may need to be repeated at times.

What Will Happen?

  • Be sure to eat a small meal prior to your appointment.
  • It is nice to bring a driver with you, but it is not mandatory.
  • The nurse will drain your bladder and apply an anesthetic gel to the bladder opening.
  • Your will then wait for 20 minutes to be sure the urethra is completely numb.
  • Dilators will be inserted into the urethra, starting with a small thin one, and slowly progressing to a wider one.
  • The procedure usually takes only 5-10 minutes.
  • At the end of the procedure, your bladder is drained again for your comfort.
  • You may return to normal activities right away.
  • It is common to see some pink, red, or brown fluid in the urine; be sure to drink plenty of fluids to flush out the bladder.
  • You may also use Azo, Pyridium, or Uribel as you may have burning with urination for a short time after the procedure.

Thank you for allowing us to provide you with the best medical care!
