Could blood in stool be due to UTI?

Hi,

I am 37 years old and had blood work and urine test done which showed that I have a urinary tract infection. My symptoms are cloudy urine with a distinct smell. I was prescribed an antibiotic. I noticed this morning that I had blood in my stool could this be related to my infection ?

Hello
Thank you for trusting HCM
Dear uti can't cause blood in stools, it may be caused by dysentery or Haemorrhoids, fissures or other causes.

Please consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly.

hello, I am Mia. My baby is just 9 months old. Last Monday he had a fever , so I went to the doctor,, they told me He has UTI . So they started giving me antibiotics for his treatment. His temperature became normal. However he started having LBM after taking an antibiotic for 4 days, and just this morning he had blood streaks in his stool . What could cause that? The doctors says that there s no sign for Anal fissures. What could have gone wrong? What should I do?

I m having UTI symptoms, such as frequent urination need, but the inability to do, and a burning sensation when attempted. I ve also had blood in my stool. Is that anything I should be worried about since I am having all these issues at once? I have been sexually active.. Could that have anything to do with it? Thanks!

i am a 30 year old male. have been healthy until recently approximately 4 weeks ago I was having blood in urine and stools and was diagnosed with a UTI. Was given antibiotics. After completing antibiotics I have been constipated and painful bowel movements with frequent urination. Currently feel abdomen is bloated, constant feeling to urinate. I was unable to urinate a couple of weeks ago, went to ER and they put in catheter. 3 days later followed up with urologist who removed the catheter and I was able to urinate. He said the inability to urinate was due to constipation. Over the past 4 to 5 days I have taken laxatives, stool softeners, prune juice and had one bowel movement which was constipation and very little amount and then yesterday had a little diarrhea and had an orange color to it. Both were painful bm s with burning in anal area and abdomen. Today, went to ER for the continual burning feeling in anal area and abdomen the cat scan shows no blockage, it did show a little air around appendix but because white cell count is normal and abdominal pain has been happening for a while dr s don t believe it is appendix related. Currently still having burning and pain around rectum and anus as well as in my abdomen along with frequent urination.
