Penis bleeding and frequent urination

Hello. I am 32 and have a problem of frequent urination. It all first started in my puberty ( around 13 ). I was constantly seeing red dots in my underwear. At least 4 - 5 dots in 3 - 4 days time. They were clearly coming from my penis and had nothing to do with my anus. These little bleedings continued for a long time nearly during all my puberty. ( I now believe this period is the time which prostate grows in size for the first time in body ). After all these bleedings, my urinary frequency increased slowly. When bleedings ended, it was like my bladder reduced to half of its size. I lived like this until i am 32. This summer once again, i saw a red dot in my underwear. Two weeks later, all in a sudden my urinary frequency skyrocketed. I can even say that i was constantly feeling the urge. Voiding wasn't helping for even 10 minutes. I went to doctor. Doctor first gave me pills for overactive bladder, antibiotics and alpha-blockers. From all of these medicine only alpha-blocker helped me ( flomax ). With it i can stand about 1 hour without the feeling of urination. I used antibiotics and overactive bladder pills for at least 3 weeks to no good. In uroflowmetry test my flow was weak, about 7 - 8 ml per second. Doctor first suspected from bladder neck obstruction. Then cyctoscopy was done and no bladder neck obstruction were found. There was only a slightly increased bladder neck height and an urethral stricture. Urethral stricture was removed during the cyctoscopy. Now my doctor thinks my condition may improve as now my bladder will not have a blockage in front of it. But no improvement is seen since operation. And i dont believe my frequent urination is tied to urethral stricture. I believe something is damaged while bleedings happened.

If you ever heard a similar problem and its fix please share. Any help is welcome. Thank you.

Urine frequency may be linked to irritable bladder and consequent reduced bladder volume.

You have had the checks to exclude serious pathology..

Try bladder training to increase bladder capacity and other drugs.


I would say any bleeding from that area needs investigation by a Doctor.

As for the frequent need to go, as Goldfish says, bladder training is the way to go.

I have experienced this myself, and basically, the more you go the more you need to go. At work I would visit the toilet at least four times in an 8 hour shift. Now I an down to one. Hold on each time a little bit longer and crazy as it sounds, drink more water.

Please see a Dr about bleeding and good luck.


Hi Arjun,

Have you tried to consult your doctor about your prostate?


Thanks for your replies. My doctor thinks it is overactive bladder, related to urethral stricture or not. He gave me a different pill for overactive bladder. Pills aren't doing any effect other than make me pee harder. I told him that i believe the problem is in the prostate. But he disagrees and says he did not see any problem in the prostate during cystoscopy. And asked "should we remove your prostate?".

Doctor is unable to identify my problem in the prostate and ties it to overactive bladder syndrome which is pretty unrelated with me. I dont have any incontinance or sudden urges to void. It is not overactive bladder. Also pills would have helped a bit if it was.

Doctor also told only thing left undone is injecting botox to my bladder to calm it down. I would let him do this if i believed it is overactive bladder. But it is not.

This is a curse.
