What Causes Painful And Frequent Urination?
urinary tract infection
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic
Blood in the urine with frequency and discomfort usually indicate an urinary tract infection.
Urinary tract infections can involve any aspect of the urinary tract -bladder, ureter, kidneys, urethra, prostate
It may be best to discontinue the ibuprofen since this family of medications have a risk of bleeding in some persons.
To determine if you do have an infection , you would need to be assessed by your doctor.
This would include physical examination and urinalysis at the office.
You doctor may want to send a sample to the lab so that he or she may get an idea of the exact bacteria that is present.
You would need a course of antibiotics and to drink a copious amount of fluids as well.
I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions

Early use of antibiotics would likely prevent this
