Urology/Alot of blood from penis


Five days ago my wife and I were experimenting with our sexual activities. My wife was slowly inserting a plastic rod down the head of my penis into my Urethra.  Once it was in about 5-6 inches she moved it up and down slowly. After maybe 3-4 strokes a large amount of red blood began streaming from the head of my penis. I had to squeeze my penis with my hand in order to stop the blood flow. After about 15-25 minutes of squeezing my penis the bleeding stopped.  For he next 12-18 hours there was a very small amount of blood the would seep from the tip after urinating. There was no blood IN the urine only a small amount of blood seepage afterwards.  After 24 hours there was no blood nor was there any pain during urination. The blood has not returned and there is no pain, and I can ejaculate without blood and workout pain. The event scared my wife and I immensely! Please, please tell us what we could of caused to have injured and what should I do now?
Thank you, please hurry I am scared as heck!!


First of all, don't do anything like that again.  You can cause significant harm and you may still develop some scarring which can cause strictures and ongoing problems.  Do not put anything into the urethra of the penis unless specifically told otherwise by a physician!

What to do now is to call your physician who may recommend that you consult a urologist.  A 10 day course of an antibiotic such as doxycycline might help prevent some scarring but at this point we usually just wait and see if you develop any problems.
