  • The bleeding certainly is a concern, but as long as you have no other symptoms -- such as pus, swelling, discoloration anywhere on your penis or in your groin, or pain bad enough to keep you from sleeping -- and the bleeding is slow, it doesn't need urgent care. Are you bleeding just a trickle? If so, pack your penis gently but firmly with gauze (not cotton balls; they'll stick to the blood), and get a good night's sleep. If you're still bleeding in the morning, go to a doctor or a minor-emergency clinic. (You might also see a small amount of blood in your next urine if it backed up into your ureter or bladder.) But if you're bleeding by teaspoons or more, get to an emergency room right away.And for future reference, don't masturbate when you have a UTI. That probably caused the bleeding by putting pressure on some infected and tender part of your plumbing. :(
