I think I have a UTI- Ive started taking antibiotics this eve. I get them so often But not used to having blood in the urine - does anyone know what this is about. Its only after i go to the loo. There is none on my underwear and is bright pink. kinda worried now.

do you have an out of hours gp service that you could ring? its probably nothing but better to get it checked out so you won't worry!

I am nearly sure i read something about blood in urine after a UTi before on this. maybe try and do a search. as far as I remember it is just to do with the uti and nothing more to worry about. i would go to your doc thou you may need an antibiotic. sorry not much help

Just to make sure I understood correctly - your urine is pink coloured? Because in that case, without actually having tested in, the colour can come from a number of other sources, not necessarily blood. Some multivitamins, sweets and foods (eg beetroot) and even anti-biotics can change colour of urine so if you suspect blood in urine, the only way to know for sure is if a gp tests it. If it is blood it is most likely due to the UTI, and the anti-biotics that treat the infection should do away with it. http://www2.vhi.ie/topic/bloodurine

I had blood when i wiped at 26 weeks and that's how i discovered i had UTI and also had strep b. I would say ring VHI nurse or out of hours gp to be sure. S

Hi Girls thanks for the replies. I wasnt on over the wend. On sat night i was bledding a bit and got a fright , it slowed down yest. I called the maternity and they told me to come in. They did a scan and the baby is fine TG! I was expecting bad news. However they couldnt figure out where the blood is coming from so Im at home today and have lost a good bit of blood today as well. I waiting for a private Gynae to call me now. I have a kidney infection and a prolapse urethra so its prob something to do with that. All the same it was really scary on Sat eve. I hope i can learn to relax.

The Gynae called me last eve and said he wants me to come in and have a Cystoscopy - camera into the bladder. I have been bleeding since Sat and its coming from the bladder region. I will need a local anasthetic which he said is fine. Im so worried. The baby is fine which is great and I have another scan on Thurs. Im so stressed out. Had anyone had one of these procedures done during their pregnancy?
