Welcome to XXXXXXX and thanks for your query.
Blood clot is suggestive of severe urinary tract infection.
She needs urine culture test and a course of appropriate antibiotics.
An ultrasound scan is needed to look for any underlying cause.
Also, general measures that prevent recurrent infections are
1. Plenty of oral fluids.
2. Cranberry juice.
3. Emptying the bladder at bed time.
4. Low dose antibiotics for about three months.
Hope this helps.
Best regards

she was on bactrim before do you think that would be strong enough for severe urinary tract infection
Answered by Dr. G.Srinivasan 6 minutes later
It is a good antibiotic.
If the urine culture tests suggests that bactrim is effective, it can be taken.
