Do these symptoms sound like my prostatitis coming back?

Around August of last year I was diagnosed with prostatitis after having pink semen (hematospermia) for a couple weeks and sometimes a few drops of blood mixed with urine at the end of my stream. I was put on ciprofloxacin for two weeks and my symptoms cleared up.

About a week ago I noticed I peed a few drops of blood after my morning bowel movement. Since last year I've come out as transgender and thought maybe the blood was an injury from tucking my penis all day the day before. This morning I had another bowel movement (I was slightly constipated) and when I stood up to pee I again passed a few drops of bloody pee. Or at least I think it's pee. I caught one drop on a piece of toilet paper and it was a little sticky and goopy like seminal fluid. I haven't noticed any blood in my semen, however.

I should add that I'm taking estrogen and spironolactone and that my sex drive has gone way down from what it used to be. I used to masturbate daily but now I'm lucky to ejaculate once a week. Finally, a few weeks ago I was anally stimulating myself by putting a dildo in my rectum but I'm not sure if this has anything to do with me getting prostatitis.

would get checked out by your doctor. That's pretty treatable once they confirm.  But the dildo in the anus may also cause an abrasion or issue so be aware. Have you gone to the doctor yet?
I'm supposed to go to the urologist next week.

In the meantime I talked to a doctor on the phone through a service that my insurance company provides. The doctor said my symptoms sound like prostatitis and gave me a prescription for ciprofloxacin which I started yesterday.

I have masturbated since then and passed a little bit of bloody fluid with my urine right after I ejaculated. This makes me a little more confident that it's prostatitis since it doesn't happen any other time.

Thanks for answering. I'll post another update after I go see my urologist.

Are the antibiotics helping?  They often work in 24 to 48 hours.  Hope it is better and do please come back and update!
