Hi,
As there is blood clot while passing urine and there is h/o cycle riding for the first time suggests that she might have slight injury in urethra resulting burning urine and passing blood clot.
You consult your doctor.

hello and welcome to healthcare magic!!
well it looks like she is indeed having a urinary tract infection it would be better to take her to a doctor and get some tests to confirm the same and start her on medications. urinary tract infections if left untreated in children could cause complications.
take care.

Age 52, 5 6 , 165lb, good health. Occasionally over the past four months I have had a sudden desperate urge to pee, at the end of which the urine turned to blood. In the latest incident (yesterday) this was repeated four or five times, each time with a larger bit of clot coming out.

I think my 8 year old daughter may have a bladder or urinary infection because she has wet the bed the last two nights, and has been running to the restroom every 5 minutes for the past three days. This has happened before about a month ago and lasted a day or two then was done. Both times she has had a small amount of blood in her urine; the first time her urine was pink, and this time it was a small clot-like spec. She says her stomach hurts while she was trying to urinate, and stops when she s done. The stomach ache is not in her kidneys, but at her belly button area.

Hi. I'm a male and have pain in my urethra near the tip of the penis. Had unprotected sex a week ago. Have seen a doctor and they did a urine test since there was almost insignificant discharge. I was told I have a bacterial infection and have been given the following medicines: VDM-KIT and Augmentine 625mg one tab twice a day for 5 days. Is this correct?
