Brief Answer:
Most probably urinary tract infection with possible prostatitis.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query.
Noted the history and understood the concerns.
The history of frequent urination, blood in urine and pain in pubic area is indicative of an urinary tract infection with probable involvement of prostate as prostatitis.
I would advise you the following in such a situation:
Give the urine sample for tests of routine, microscopy, culture and sensitivity before antibiotic is started to get a proper diagnosis and helps in further management.
Tests of blood for CBC, kidney functions and PSA.
Ultrasonography of whole abdomen particularly of urogenital system.
Per-rectal digital examination
Any other tests as advised by your Doctor/ Urologist and proper management as per the cause found.

I hope this answer helps you in proper diagnosis and management.
Please feel free to ask for further relevant queries if you feel that there is a gap of communication.

Hi, I am a 53-year-old male. I used to hold urine for long time in my childhood . In my adolescence, I experience infrequent urination which still persists. My hygiene is good. I did not eat on time for 3-4 years because of my job, sometimes once a day. I am masturbating since my adolescence till now. Still, I urinate frequently and have a tuna fish-like smell to it and my body smells the same. I did not go to doctor because of fear. My father was a diabetic.

Hi, I have been on the mirena IUD for 3 years now, and the last 2 weeks I have had very tender breasts, my lower abdomen feels bloated, I have had nausea but it seems to only be at night, and recently smells have been making me so nauseated I can hardly keep down my recent meal.. I have also noticed some white vaginal discharge, and have been so tired lately I can hardly pull myself out of bed, and go about my day without wanting to lay down for a nap. I had some spotting about 3 weeks ago and figured it was just a light period, because I am irregular I also have frequent urination, so I thought I was getting a bladder infection but when I looked it up I have no symptoms other then frequent urination, no burning sensation, its not cloudy, no fever.. I m at a loss I took a pregnancy test just to be sure and it came out negative..
