Welcome to ehealthforum,
The bleeding source needs to be determined to see if the blood is from vagina or from the bladder. Consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for thorough evaluation. A test done on 'midstream urine sample' would help to confirm/rule out bleeding from urinary tract. A vaginal examination done would help to rule out infective or cervical causes. Get started on treatment as indicated. If infective cause is detected, (and if you are sexually active), get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid tight fitting clothes.
