User :   I had some heavy blood in my urine and went to the GP who prescribed some antibiotics and took a urine sample. The urine sample has come back showing nothing but since starting the course of antibiotics the bleeding has stopped. Surely if it was anything to worry about the bleeding would continue? What do think it is? Thank you.
