Why does a urinary tract infection cause blood in urine?

Why does a urinary tract infection cause blood in urine?

Inflammation.: Bacterial infections can cause inflammation/irritation of the lining of your urinary tract leading to traces of blood making its way in your urine. Also explains why sometimes with a bad cold we sometimes see streaks of blood in mucous and phlegm. Bacteria similarly cause irritation of the respiratory tract lining.

Hematuria: Blood in the urine is rarely due to STI. It could happen, but the main symptom of STI involving the urinary tract is urethriits, with abnormal discharge and often discomfort on urination, but no blood. However, with "infection markers" (WBC?), it is reasonable to test urine for STI, especially gonorrhea and chlamydia. But most likely it's something else, e.g. passing a stone. Keep working w/ MD.

I'm having symptoms of blood in urine, but not infection. How is this possible?

Blood in urine: Blood in urine is called hematuria. If you can see it, it is macroscopic hematuria meaning larger amount of blood than if u had microscopic hematuria. If infection has been ruled out by proper culture, which can not be assumed always, other causes of inflammation like growth, stones, drugs and other renal diseases need to be ruled out.

Stones?: Kidney stones, bladder cancer, kidney disease, endometriosis, are few of the examples. If you have blood in the urine you should see your doctor promptly.

Have pain every time I urinate, test negative for infections. I have UTI symptoms, flank pain, history of kidney stones but no blood in urine, help?!

Have pain every time I urinate, test negative for infections. I have UTI symptoms, flank pain, history of kidney stones but no blood in urine, help?!

May still be a UTI: Usually, pain on urination (dysuria) is a symptom of a UTI from which the offending bacteria can be grown from the urine. Less commonly dysuria can occur from the irritation of passing a kidney stone alone (i.e. Not a uti). In other situations, the laboratory can't isolate the microbe because it's too difficult to grow in culture (e.g. Chlamydia)- in that case, you may still actually have a uti.

Would there be any connection between HPV without obvious symptoms and microscopic blood in urine without infection?

Would there be any connection between HPV without obvious symptoms and microscopic blood in urine without infection?

HPV and UTIs: Blood in the urine is most likely to be from an infection or inflammation. On very rare occasions blood in the urine can also represent renal cell cancer. Hpv, the virus that causes warts, cervical and rectal and throat cancer, is most likely not the cause of blood in a urine sample. Most strains of hpv do not cause cancer so I would advise you not to worry much about this.

SEVERE UTI-like symptoms for 2 yrs. Gyno: UTIs, STDs, STIs, & infections test neg. A lot of blood in urine. Urologist said everything is normal. How?!

Seek a second input: Hematuria is not normal. Your symptoms suggest the probability of a stone and or passing a stone. Would suggest getting an imaging if not done. Further more a full urine test would help. A bladder stone can cause UTI like symptoms. In rare cases interstitial cystitis can present like this but rare. Getting a kidney doctor to work up is the next best step. Best of luck hope you feel better.

BP Rx needed: First of all, you need to have your obvious hypertension treated with medication. Secondly, have your OB GYN search for answers as to why you are still having pain 2 months post partum C/S which is not normal. The back pain may be related to the blood in your urine, wither with a urinary tract infection/pyelonephritis or a complication/cause of the hypertension. A Urologist is a good idea.

What does small traces of blood in urine without an infection mean?

Blood in urine: If only a trace amount of blood (without any protein in urine), the most likely possibilities include kidney stones or crystals in the urine, recent heavy exercise, thin basement membrane nephropathy, or IgA nephropathy. The latter 2 are detected with a kidney biopsy, but in the absence of protein in the urine most nephrologists would not pursue one. Also need to consider a kidney or bladder mass.
