Hi there. Board-certified obgyn here. It could be that you have some skin changes around your clitoris that is getting irritated as you finish urinating. It's hard to know exactly what's going on, but when I see patients like this (as long as everything physically looks OK) I tell them to try "eliminating" things. Meaning, try avoiding things that could be potential skin irritants. I recommend using an unscented Dove bar and letting soapy water run over the area in the shower, avoid tub baths, no douching ever, unscented for sensitive skin laundry detergents. I also recommend cutting out caffeine, sugary drinks, and citrusy drinks just in case those are the culprit. You can also add in what's called a "probiotic", which is a way to take in "good bacteria" to help protect your body from bad bacteria. An easy way to do this is by eating a cup of Activia yogurt per day.

Ok. You might have a little tear there (can be common well after menopause as the tissues down there thin and become more fragile) that gets dripped on towards the end of urination and is uncomfortable. Some over the counter, nonhormonal ointments that you can try are Replens or Luvena. They're vaginal ointments that can help make the tissues more robust and healthy.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
