What causes red vaginal discharge while suffering from UTI?

I have a urinary Trac infection so I bought some over the counter meds that the pharmacist told me to buy I started it the night before last night but yesterday I started my period and I got up to take a shower 35 to 45 minutes ago and as I was cleaning myself I notice this light reddish skin type of stuff started coming out and this is the first time ever that this happens to me what is it?

A red vaginal discharge can be due to the drug used for infection. However if it persists, then a vaginal examination by doctor is necessary.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further. Wishing you all the best.

I have had a uti and a yeast infection and been taking antibiotics and using creams. Well today as I whiped I noticed dried blood clots on the tolit paper so I checked my undies and there was also dried blood clots there as well. Went to the restroom again this evening and noticed the same thing dried dark red/brown blood clots. Have been sick to my stomach as well and hurting in my back but about half ways up.. what could be causing this?

Hi, in February I went to the ER and I was told I have a UTI. It is now April and I still have to wear a liner. My question today is. Should the doctor have scrapped my cervix? I now have an odor that have yet to go away and a yellow discharge two months later

I went to the urgent care on tuesday because i was having signs of a uti. The doctor took a urine sample and told me even though she was waiting on the culture results she was sure i had a uti and started me on bactrum. Today i finally called the doctor back to check on my results and they said it was in fact a uti but that they had me on the wrong antibiotics for the certain bacteria im fighting and are putting me on cipro. I just got done using the restroom and there was a thick clear slimy discharge. Is this normal? And also when will i finally start getting some relief? I am in excruciating pain and honestly ibuprofen and cystex just isnt cutting it. Ive also been drinking tons of water. It just seems relentless.
