Does circumcision cause urinary bleeding?

Hi I am 29 and had my circumcision last week . I am dropping a couple of blood drops before urination and that s not happening every time either. When I contacted my Doctor he said bleeding has nothing to do with circumcision and it might be some other problem is it true????

Hi,
Thanks for writing in.

It is important to know from where exactly is it bleeding. A history of burning during urination is also important. In most patients circumcision involves removal of the foreskin. In some patients, a catheter might be used for passing urine following surgery. This can cause infection or trauma to the penile urethra and lead to minimal bleeding. This needs to be discussed in detail if you were put on a urinary catheter immediately after surgery. Other than a bladder or urinary infection there is no other reason that you should drip blood before urination. If required please get a routine urine examination done.
