It depends: Cystoscopy is not commonly needed or indicated for a regular UTI unless the symptoms persist despite an adequate course of antibiotics.
Since you had such severe bleeding your case is different. I would advice you to check your urine for red blood cells(RBCs).... for any ongoing bleeding(Microscopic hematuria). If you have persisting RBCs, then a cystoscopy would be indicated
