Brief Answer: Please, observe again for blood in urine. Detailed Answer: Hi and thank you so much for this query. I am so sorry to hear about this bladder infection and the blood you observed in urine today. Ciprofloxacine is a good drug for bladder infection. It should be able to treat most common causes of bladder infection. Considering all the information you have provided, I will suggest that you monitor your urine closely over the next days. If you should still observe blood, then I will suggest that you get consulted and evaluated again. If it should not repeat itself, then I will consider this and incidental finding and will not suggest any immediate aggressive management. But, should this happen again in future, then you must go in for the common causes of blood in urine like kidney stones, infections(schistosomiasis, ), cancers, etc to be investigated and ruled out. For now, increase your oral fluid intake in addition to the above advice. I hope you find this helpful. Thank you so much for using our services and feel free to ask for clarifications and more information if need be. I wish you well. Thanks. Dr. Ditah, MD.
