What causes blood in the urine?

I'm having a very intense tingling sensation towards the end of urinating, ferquent urination, & mild back/abdominal pain. Sort of feels like menstrual cramps. There was a tinge of blood on the tissue after urinating this morning. I think I'm bleeding from the urinary meatus. What in the world could this be? I've found a lot of online forums but no credible answers...I had an IUD places 10 days ago.

Hello,

As there is a history of IUD placement ten days ago, the most possible reason for blood in urine is a urinary infection. I recommend immediately to take urine microscopy and consult with report till that time drink plenty of liquids.


Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Bhagyesh V. Patel
