Suggest treatment for discomfort penis during urination - Online Doctor Chats
hi I am experiencing modest discomfort in my penis when urinating with on and off bleeding usuallythe blood precedes the urine flow but sometimes the blood just leaks out and drips everywhere - i am on antibiotics for 24 hours but still plenty of blood
It seems that the source of blood is urethra
just grasping for answers my regular doctor hasnt provided much detail and bleeding is making me nervous
yes it does seem like the urethra
every time I think it is slowing down it starts again
i have actually been forced to wear sanitary napkin during the day to avoid staining my pants..
The usual cause is tones in urethra or some other type of trauma
do antibiotics clear the bleeding quickly?
so what happens generally?
But it will keep you from getting an infection
I think you need some tests to figure out the cause
so how long may I continue bleeding?
Most bleeds stop spontaneously
If you continue to bleed
you can be given medicines to stop the bleed
what kind of medicine does that?
Something like tranexemic acid
These medicines can be used to stop bleeds
But better way is to find the cause
took blood tests and urine tests with no real conclusions other than alot of white blood cells in my urine
but infection itself doesnt cause the bleeding and clots?
In such a case a urine culture and sensitivity should also be done
culture and sensitivity what does that mean?
Infection of bladder can cause it
culture is to get the bacteria
sensitivity is to test their sensitivity to antibiotics
eColi or something like that? but does that cause the bleeding? infection of bladder? if so how long does this usually continue?
i know I have fifty questions, sorry
Yes the infection can be because of ecoli - most common
though there can be other bacteria too
Infection of urinary bladder-cystitis
It should resolve if the correct antibiotics are given
He is also well educated to solve it
Atleast the basic tests will be done by him until you get an appointment for urologist
yah I already did the basics and got the pills
The antibiotic is ok
But it does not seem to be working
ok thats good...
So either the bacteria is resistant
only taking it one day so far
or the cause is something else
how many days until it should take effect?
antibiotics usually take 3 days to work better
so I guess wait until Sunday and if still bleeding go see a urologist next week..? agree?
I am not sure how much you are bleeding
well usually just a little preceding urination but this morning for example after urinating blood kept dripping out non stop for several minutes just dripping but enough to make a mess
if it is too much than may see your doctor sooner
sometimes when I urinate more blood comes out on and off
tough to judge what too much is??
It seems to be increasing
I guess you may see your doctor
its enough to need to change sanitary napkins twice a day
so that he may do something in time
ok I guess not much more you can tell me
You can ask specific questions
ok thanks for your help -
Thanks for consulting
You too have a great time
