Hi , My name is Kayla and Im recovering an UTI. Never had one so I never knew how much pain I was going to be in . I went to the doctor about a week ago, and was prescrbed with an antibiotic called something with an"S". It stopped the pain I was having the doctor said it will stop the infection. I had blood in my urine so I ask my doctor about that she said it was a kind of normal during a bladder infection kinda made me nervous but I was prescribed to take the medicine for about 7 days but I recently believe I started my menstrual cycle. But I have been bleeding for about 6 whole days and it's really scaring me should I be concerned or is it just because my body is different and I'm experiencing more I'm not sure. Should I wait a little more time or should I go back to the ER? Any response would be very welcome thank you

    Blood in the urine, for me, is the first sign of a UTI.  My last one was a few months ago now but was significant.  I was prescribed Batrim first and it didn't clear the infection.  My doctor then prescribed 10 days of Macrobid (excellent antibiotic for UTI's since it targets *just* UTI's) and the bleeding didn't stop until around the eighth day of the Macrobid.

    Did your doctor, perhaps, prescribe "Cipro" (to the ear would sound like "s"wink?  If so, you should google the side effects.
