Hi, I am an American Board Certified Doctor and I am very glad to help you with your health concerns.

Your symptoms and clinical manifestations are suspicious for UTI. You may be developing cystitis, which is infection of the bladder. Alternatively you may also be having a urinary tract stone which can explain the pain and blood.

A thorough clinical examination followed by relevant investigations like urine analysis and possibly an ultrasound examination of the pelvis focusing on the bladder, kidney and urinary tract should help in finalising the diagnosis and then treated appropriately (antibiotic, plenty of fluids etc). Also it is important to find out whether the symptoms are originating from the genital tract with appropriate clinical and lab examinations and then treated appropriately.

Please let me know if you have any further questions; and if you feel you have received the answer to your question please rate me so that I can receive credit for the time and effort put by me in answering your question.

Best regards,
