Hi all, 

i have recently been dignosed with a UTI infection following a urine sample. 

i have been gatting sever pain in my left side, this was coming and going. i had no problems with going to the toilet with burning or only urinating a little bit.

the pain got so bad i couldnt sit still i was having to move constantly however the pain did not go. while i was having these pains i was also bleeding VERY heavy. 

I had already had my period this was a couple of days after i had finished, however the pain had aleady started, at first i thought i was pregnant, this worried me alot. The bleeding lasted 12 days. i did take a test and it come back negitave.

when i spoke to the doctor i did tell them that i was getting heavy vaginal bleeding but i didnt get an explanation for this happening. 

i was wondering if anyone else had experianced anything like this with heavy blood? as i cant seem to get my head around it?

i feel like i have no explanation for any of this happening to me as i have had a UTI when i was younger and i had tests done, this time it was just a urine sample. It is more of the case of how i was bleeding so much or even if it was connected?

thank you smile

    Hello jodie. It is possible to have blood in your urine with a severe urine infection which obviously you have had. It however would only be present when you actually passed urine. You've obviously had a UTI because a urine test diagnosed this but I'm wondering if the bleeding is unconnected to that and you have a gynae problem. If it continues you need to see your doctor again and you could need a blood test because bleeding for such a long time could cause anaemia.

      Thank you for that, I felt as though they just wanted me in and out tbh. They didn't really listen to what I had to say.

      I know there was some in my urine too as that's what come up on the test, however as I was going through many pads I used a tampon and it was definitely not just when I was urinating.

      Keep an eye on it then but don't bleed for too long otherwise you will feel really unwell x
