Bleeding after removing urethral dilators. Painful urination. Should I be concerned?

Last night I was experimenting with urethral dilators and upon removal of the dilator, a bit of blood came out. It hurt when I urinated after, but this morning the pain was gone, but I still have some blood. I sterilized the dilators with alcohol and used plenty of sterile lubricant during my experimenting. I also did not force anything. I have done this before without any blood show so now I am a bit worried that I may have torn the inside of my urethra. Should I be overly concerned or is this something that will heal on its own in a few days?

Hello dear...
The presence of blood suggest the occurrence of trauma to the urethra.
It may also be associated with inflammation/ infection which can cause recurrent pains.
The treatment involves:
1. Drinking lots of water.
2. Antibiotics such as Ciprofloxacin 500 mg twice in a day.
3. If there is associated fever, then paracetamol 500 mg three times in a day can be added.
One more thing...avoid acidic foods, carbonated drinks and alcohol...& maintain good hygiene.
There is no need to will be alright.
Wishing you a speedy recovery.
Thanks & take care.
