Thank you for posting your query.

Bleeding is not common in cases of UTI.

So, if your mother has recurrent bleeding, she needs to be evaluated by a gynecologist and urologist to ascertain the cause of bleeding.

It could be another infection, and we need to exclude any malignancy looking at her age of 85.
