Hi there ...

Thank you for the question ...

I am sorry to hear about your issue ...

As you are on antibiotics for last 30 days for possible UTI , you have blood in Urine and specially after playing tennis , this need immediate attention .

Blood in Urine ( Frank blood ) is less likely because of UTI and more likely because of Stone in the Urinary tract , tumor or bladder injury .

It would be ideal for you to have Ultrasound for diagnosis , you shouldn't delay and immediately get time from from Urologist

in your case infection is less likely other possibilities as I mentioned should be ruled out .

Regards ***** ***** luck .

I am a double board certified clinical doctor.

Microscopic blood in the urine after exercise, can be normal.

It is called march hematuria.

It is not appropriate to treat it with antibiotics, unless you have a documented infection with urine cultures.

that is a different issue.

Kidney stones cause extreme pain in almost all instance.

As you asked, what causes blood after exercise [tennis]

Most commoly, march hematuria.
