Forum Name: Clots & Anticoagulants

Question: Blood Clot while peeing


 kandiappleg - Tue Nov 10, 2009 4:54 pm

Hello, i'm a 21 year old female and today i had a pretty bad stomach ache so i went to the bathroom and once i went to use the toliet ALOT! of blood came out, and a few clots also. I'm not sure what this mean, i did just start birth control a few weeks ago but im not sure if this is the reason for the large amount of blood.

User avatar Hi,
Contraceptive pills as well as injectable contraceptives generally induce an 'hypercoagulable' state rather than to cause bleeding.

Therefore,one has to think of other possibilities.One can perhaps start with a suspicion of 'cystitis' or a UTI, both of which are fairly common in young women.

here is one entity that needs a special mention...

'Hemorrhagic cystitis', a condition mostly caused by certain interventions such as radiation, cancer chemotherapy, certain viruses and occasionally 'chemical induced'.

Certain chemicals and medications(including contraceptive suppositories) which are inserted intravaginally, may be misplaced into the urethra or manage to enter the urethra accidentally and cause this condition.

So, you perhaps need a routine urinalysis followed by a culture of your urine.These will help to prove or exclude a UTI.
If in case you have any freshly raised suspicion of a 'Hemorrhagic cystitis', please address your concern to your doctor.

Best wishes!
