I was wondering if anyone knew or had any experience with this. I have a bladder infection (saw the nurse today and did a urinalysis), but every time I go to the bathroom, there's blood on the tissue and a little that drips-but never any in my underwear. I've tried to figure out where the blood is coming from and I'm pretty sure it's vaginal. Is the bleeding a normal occurrence with a bladder infection (I mentioned it to the nurse and she didn't say anything about it) or is something else going on? My last period started Oct. 26, and I think I ovulated earlier this week. My husband and I are ttc, but I wouldn't think this is implantation bleeding-isn't it a little early for that?
Any info would be SO helpful, I'm a little nervous about what the problem might be.
It sounds like you're urinating blood. (This can occur when a person has an acute bladder infection.) It should be pretty easy to check to see if you're bleeding from your urethra or your vagina. Try cleaning yourself before you urinate- if there's blood then it most likely came from your vagina; if there's blood only after you urinate, that will indicate that you're urinating blood.
I would definitely watch the situation. If you see relief of your other symptoms but continue to bleed/ urinate blood I would go back to my doctor.
deteragram, thank you for the quick reply, it makes me feel a little better that this is possibly a more 'normal' occurrence, though I've never bled before during a bladder infection (which luckily are few and far between). I'll watch it closely and hopefully it'll go away.
i just had my period last august 2. Last august 17 was my scheduled ovulation but unexpectedly i'm having my period today already, my scheduled date should have been september 2 yet. Is this something I have to be alarmed with. This is my first time to experience such irregularity. Although I had some patterns before of having periods first week and last week of the month. but this time around the interval is only 16 days from my last one. Hope somebody can help me.
