I’ve had two urine samples taken both showed blood but no infection - has anyone else experienced this? Not given anything to treat .

    Blood usually shows up in my urine and I know it does with a lot of other people I talked to. Are we talking about a good amount of blood where you can actually see it in your urine, which I have seen sometimes but it has been a while since that? Do you have any problems with urination like pain and frequency or is it just the blood that is worrying you? Usually the doctors I have seen don't really look into that so I'm thinking that they believe it is normal.

      I think you would be smart to follow up about it. I have seen actual blood in my urine but it has gone away. The sooner you figure out the problem the better. It took me almost two and half years while trying everything possible with all the doctors and procedure/therapies you can imagine. Some problems are harder to pinpoint than others. Don't let them just brush it off if it really concerns you. My main problem is this urge to urinate all day long and some doctors wonder why it bothers me so much. I mean seriously now would any of them be able to do their jobs if they had to urinate the whole time they were doing a patient consultation or even throughout the whole day when they had to see a bunch of patients. Did you find the blood on the strips that you use at home?

    Yes, MUST  get a follow up. As I say it is probably a polyp (or an infection)   but they cannot tell untiul the do a cystoscopy

    Hi

    I had the exact same issue, as have many people on this forum! I had blood in my urine for over 3mths. I have read somewhere that 99% of people with this have no serious issues. However I would definitely follow this up and maybe ask for a cystoscopy for complete  peace of mind.

    Hi Amber, surprised nothing given or further action re blood in urine? 7 years ago I kept getting cystitis and unseen blood and it was the beginning of bladder cancer - all successfully treated. Now I am bleeding again but no cystitis and had a CT scan showing a 2.5 cm tumour in my bladder - waiting to go in for its removal and sent away for analysis - so please get this checked out again it could be nothing. A fried of mine has horrendous bleeding when weeing but tests show it is just IC. Good luck

    I too have had blood in urine for 2 1/2 months now. I've had a cyoscopy (look inside bladder), a ultrasound of my kidneys and next will have some polyps removed from uterus. No bacteria, no UTI. Just wondering what other people have found with same experience? Thanks
