Hello and welcome to HCM,
The appearance of blood in urine can be due to many reasons.Urinary tract infection
(UTI), and trauma to the urinary tract are the most common causes of blood in urine.
A urine examination and microscopy are required to look for the any positive findings.
Presence of pus cells, epithelial cells
, and/or red blood cells is suggestive of urinary tract infection.
Further culture and drug sensitivity are required to isolate the organism causing infection and to select most appropriate antibiotic.
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) can also cause urinary tract infection.
STDs usually present with ulcer, rash, enlarged lymph
nodes, or discharge from the urethra
If your boyfriend has any of these symptoms, consultation with dermatologist/ veneralogist may be required.
Your boyfriend is advised to avoid sexual contact till these symptoms disappear.
In order to prevent STDs, safe sex should be practised.
Use barrier method of contraception
to prevent STDs.
Thanks and take care
Dr Shailja p Wahal
