I think you need to be seen by a urologist who specializes in female urology. You probably need a cystoscopy to look in the bladder to determine whether all the blood in the urine was really from an infection or something else that may also be the source of your pain. One possibility is a cyst around your urethra, stones in the bladder, or even tumors of the bladder. Hope this helps and let me know if I can answer any other questions.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
