Brief Answer:
It is due to UTI

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for query .Based on the facts that you have posted increased frequency for urination and two episodes of blood in urine (Hematuria) that you have is mostly due to UTI.

The routine urine analysis does not detect bacteria hence whenever patient has symptoms typical of infection it is always suggested to do urine culture which is precise test to trace out bacterial infection .

Take broad spectrum antibiotics like Cefixime along with urinary antiseptic like
Nitrofurantoin twice daily and urine alkaliser thrice daily.Later on switch on to appropriate antibiotics as per culture report.

Get the prescription of medicines from your family Physician.

Ensure to drink more water to keep urine dilute This will help to control dysuria.

Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions,I shall be happy to help you
Thanks and Regards.

Brief Answer:
It is very commn nin females

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for follow up .
It is very common in females reasons being
1) Close proximity of urethral opening to anus
2) Vaginal and Urethral openings being common
which makes transmission of infection easy
3) Use of common Toilet which in most of the places are not clean .

Thanks and Regards.
