When I pee there are brown clumps in my urine. I have pcos and have been spotting for 2 months now. Can this just be old blood or more serious?

When I pee there are brown clumps in my urine. I have pcos and have been spotting for 2 months now. Can this just be old blood or more serious?

Spotting: Spotting for 2 months at age 19 is not a good thing. Not a major issue but certainly needs attention from your primary doctor. Hope all goes well - I anticipate it will. Please let me know how things go.

Wondering why is blood in my urine?

Wondering why is blood in my urine?

Get evaluated.: Blood in the urine, or hematuria, in the absence of infection, is abnormal and should be worked up. First, a urinary infection must be ruled out. Red cells are common in this setting. If there is no infection, further evaluation is needed to find the source. Work with your doctor to make sure you find a cause, or rule out the more worrisome ones.

What does urine with blood look like?

What does urine with blood look like?

Somewhat as expected: To the naked eye, if there is only the slightest trace of blood in urine, the urine grossly may appear normal color. If there is profuse bleeding, it could appear like pure blood. Often, as you may suspect it can be somewhere in between with color based on a small amount of blood that modifies/darkens color. Depends on if whole blood or only certain blood elements entering urine as well.

How can I identify blood in the urine?

How can I identify blood in the urine?

Several ways.: Blood in the urine can be visible, imparting pink to dark red color to the urine. Very small amounts may be invisible and testing need to be performed. In the clinic, hematuria can be detected by urine dipstick, which would reveal small, moderate, or large blood. A lab test called a microscopic urinalysis would show more than 3 red cells per high power field.
