Hi I am 29 years old and i wondered if anyone could put my mind at rest, The last few days when I have been to the toilet to urinate when I have wiped there has been a very light bit of blood, its a light red/ pink colour as though i have just cut myself but only a little bit I am also expieriencing light abdominal pain. I think it could be a water infection but anyones input would be great,there is not a flow of blood it is only when i have urinated. I going to make an appointment tomorrow but this has not stopped me worrying, my cycle finished on the 14th so I know it isnt my period coming. im married and I just have a baby 4 months ago.. thank you

hi there
its very difficult to comment without thorough history and examination.
there is nothing to worry.
the differentials are ;
uti
PID
bladder stone
nephritis

i would like to run some tests:
urinalysis
urine culture
ultrasound abdomen pelvis
std panel
renal function test
coagulation profile


if urinalysis show puss cells,a preliminary diagnosis of uti can be made and antibiotics can be started.

meanwhile drink a lot of water


regards
thanks for using ehealth forum
