Undergoing menopause, have frequent urination, dark urine with blood, urine test showed infection, subsided with plenty of water, cranberry juice, antibiotics. Cause of infection?

I have recently begin to urinate a lot. I am 55, in menopause . I had a full hyster. 2 years ago. I had never had any kind of infections before. woke up one morning and was urinating blood , urine was dark brown for 1 day. I drank a lot of water and cranberry juice and it stopped. Went to doctor on Monday and they took a specimen and said i had an infection and perscribed antibotic for 3 days. Seems to have done the trick. I am not sexually active now. what caused the infection.

Thanks for the query.
Urinary tract infection sometimes can present with blood stained urine.
Urinary tract infections can occur due to:
-Inadequate intake of water
-Retaining the urine for longer period
-Skin to skin contact
-Spreading of infection from adjacent areas like vagina

Usually by taking measures like:
-Taking plenty of water like 3 to 4 liters per day.
-Voiding the urine in every 2 to 3 hours
-Taking antibiotics
-Ruling out general conditions like diabetes etc, urinary tract infection can be controlled.
Take care.
