3 months ago recent oral sex with a woman outside of my marriage
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
She gave me oral sex

Are you there?
Doctor: Connie Pennington,
 replied 4 months ago

OK, that should not make you bleed though.

I would notify your urologist. Bleeding from the bladder can be serious. They may want to do a cystoscopy in the office to look into the bladder.

Sorry I am a slow typer....

Do you have easy access to your urologist?

what is a cystoscopy.?
Doctor: Connie Pennington,
 replied 4 months ago

It is where the urologist uses a small tube with a camera on it and places it through the penis into the bladder. We can evaluate the bladder this way. r/o things that bleed.

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
this is why I am not talking on the phone.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
the blood was dry in my in my pajamas 4 or 5 small drops.
Doctor: Connie Pennington,
 replied 4 months ago

Blood like that is not normal.

There is no restriction to intercourse.

I would notify your urologist of the bleeding, to be on the safe side.

I hope this helps! We work for stars, so please 5 star this if it was speedy and helpful!

I will monitor it and see if it reoccurs okay I will notify my urologist. I am in Florida and he is in ny. I am snowbird..
Doctor: Connie Pennington,
 replied 4 months ago

Oh happy snowbird. We are getting ready to visit my parents for Easter, who are snowbirds as well.

Hope you are having good weather. It's ok to monitor it, but do mention it to your urologist when you get home.

A cystoscopy to look into the bladder is a simple procedure, and would make me feel better. Peace of mind is a good thing.

Have a great day!

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
