Something else: The urinary tract and the bowel are not connected unless there is a fistula between them as a result of some inflammation common to both.

IgA nephropathy: A small kidney stone is unlikely to cause recurrent hematuria. Several kidney diseases can cause blood in the urine. The source of bleeding and the significance of hematuria can be determined by microscopic examination of urine. Iga nephropathy is a disease which tends to causes similar symptoms. Please see a nephrologist.
