Berachos 44b

Gemara: "Any thing that requires a blessing after itself, also requires a blessing beforehand."
Exceptions would be Tevila (Gemara 51a), and Netilas Yadayim.

The Gemara is talking about birchos hamitzvos or brachos an ha'na'ah. Asher Yatzar is a beracha of ho'da'ah, and like all birchos ho'da'ah we say it after the thing that happened that we are thanking Hashem for.
