Frequent urination, blood on wiping. Pain in vagina, occasional pain in lower hip. Reason?

Hi, I am a 42 year old female. Recently I have been urinating a lot more than usual and when I wipe, there is a little blood on the toilet paper. My urine doesn t have blood in it and there is no pain when I urinate. However when I m not urinating, there is a little pain at the vagina area. I put a pad on and there would be a little red on it but not much. I know the blood is definitely coming from the vagina. I had my period from the 27 through the 4th of this month. Ever since the 4th I ve been having this problem. I know that I definitely it is not my period. I don t know if this has to do with the problem, but when I m sleeping, there is occasional pain in my lower back near my hips.

General & Family Physician 's  Response

Based on your description your presentation does match that of a possible infection, pelvic inflammatory disease, urinary tract infection (UTI), etc.

I would advise a urine analysis, transvaginal ultrasound and a vaginal swab (but only if the urine and ultrasound investigations report inconclusive results).

Please visit your doctor with the results of the above mentioned investigations or write back to me for an interpretation and way forward.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes.
