Dear customer,
Thank you for the question.

This is commonly seen due to catheterization. The catheter can irritate the delicate lining of the urethra. This mild bleeding is not a cause for alarm or concern. Only if the bleeding is heavy or if persistent you should contact his doctor. The mild bleeding and catheter caused injury will resolve by itself.

Take care.
