Question: urinating blood

 hypohondric - Sun Feb 01, 2004 4:27 pm

For the last 24 hours I`ve been urinating blood. I also feel a strong tension in my bladder, as if I have to urinate all the time. What are the possible problems to cose this indisposition and what are their sollutions?

User avatar Dear Hypohondric,

Urinating blood and the sensation of strong tension in the bladder are usually caused by urinary tract infections in young females (especially if sexually active).

i suggest that you have a urine analysis done to confirm the diagnosis and the treatment is usually antibiotics.

Other causes of blood in urine are urinary tract stones and tumours. Blood in the urine caused by stones are usually associated with severe colicks. Blood in the urine caused by tumours is usually painless.

You have to go to a doctor and have a urine analysis done.

Thank you very much for using our website and i hope that this information helped.

My girlfriend has something similar but i'm not sure if it's exact. She is sexual active, and we did have sex like 2 days before she has this pain in her stomach. She also says that she bleeds when she goes to the bathroom. Not alot, but enough to make her urine pinkish. I for sure thought she was pregnant. So could this be a sign of it? Or is it like you said, a infection in her bladder. Also she always have the run to the bathroom.

User avatar Dear Sixthgensi,

This could be an infection and the best way to make sure is to have a urinalysis.

i am a 19 year old male, with no prior health problems, surgeries, and i am not following any medication.

yesterday i was sitting on my couch watching tv and had my hand was on my testicles. all of a sudden, i may have made a sudden movement, my left testicle began to feel very sore, and painful. late,r i played a soccer game, went out to a bar and had a few drinks and danced a little bit even, where in all three of these activities my testicle was submitted to painful contacts, such as someone brushing up against me, which felt very uncomfortable.

this morning i woke up, and my left testicle was very inflated, visibly looking much larger then the right testicle, which seems to be fine.

i vomited that night due to having eaten an excessive amount of late night snacks.

today, the left testicle is no longer as tender as it was yesterday (there was a point where i could barely stand it was so painful), yet when i urinate there seems to be some blood, and i feel the need ot urinate much more often. do yo uhave any idea what the problem is and whati should od to resolve it?
