Frequent urination. Blood in urine. Had frequent bladder infections in the past

Hi, I have been having a problem with having to pee every few minutes for a couple of years now. Everytime I go to a doctor they treat it as a bladder infection and put me on antibiotics it only helped for a few months the first time and the last time I went to the doctor it was a couple of weeks ago and now I not only have to pee every few minutes but I only pee blood . What is wrong with me?

Hello dear...
Presence of blood in urine may be due to:

1. Diseases of the kidney like glomerulonephritis
2. Medications like aspirin, heparin, certain antibiotics, etc.
3. Vigorous exercise can also cause urine to have blood in it due to trauma to the bladder, breakdown of red blood cells, or dehydration.
4. However urinary bleeding without pain may also indicate some serious disorder like cancer of the Urinary bladder. will be better to consult an Urologist to find out the exact cause.
Investigations like Urine examination & Ultrasound scan of Abdomen & Pelvis will be helpful in clinching the diagnosis.

Wishing you a Good Health. Let me know if I need to clarify further.
Thanks & take care.
