welcome to healthcare magic
hi from the above history of recurrent UTI ,in this case its important for you to get a urine routine and culture done .but only hematuria is not an indication it has to be associated with fever and chills .and get bleeding and clotting time done .it would be better to have a consultation as soon as possible if the hematuria persists.
thank you
