What causes urethra bleeding?
User rating for this question
My urethra is bleeding. It is not a lot. I just saw a gynecologist, she recommends a D&C. If cancer is not found in the uterus,then she said she would turn me over to a urologist. I am wondering if it could be caused by an infection and I need an antibiotic now and not until after the D&C which could not be until 7 to 10 days. Also, what could be causing the bleeding
