I had no obvious bleeding during/after the procedure, but the doctor advised that I would have blood in my semen and urine for a while.
Being a curious sort, I m@sturb@ted that night. When I ejaculated, it was blood, blood and more blood....and my prostate hurt like heck for about 15 minutes.
My wife, being a neat, clean freak who loves every inch of our home, would have had a fit if I had gotten blood on any of her things, particularly when the blood originated from that particular act.
So much for an old man's curiosity....lol.
