Thank you for your question.

With the symptoms that you are having i.e. having blood in the urine and going to the bathroom more frequently you could be having a urine infection.

I would strongly recommend that you be seen ASAP for this, preferably in the emergency to have this taken care of.

You will likely require a urine test and a course of an antibiotic if an infection is proven.

This could also be a sign of stones in your urinary tract, which, if considered must be ruled out by doing an ultrasound or preferably a CT scan.

This session is open for any further questions that you may have.
