I had problems with my kidneys two years ago. I had a urine infection and the doctors said it could become more complicated if i did not get rid of it. I took antibolitics for it to go away and succesfully it did.

Latley ive been getting alot of pains. Ive been getting alot of back aches and side and stomach pains and cramps. I feel like throwing up every morning and been getting pains in my breast. I had my period like normal but two weeks after intercoure i had cramps and light brown spotting.
I took two pregnancy test and one came out neggative but the second came out a light possitive.

ive been confused quite some time and yesterday i went to the doctors to see if myabe it was a kidney problem and they found that i had a bit of blood in my urine. I have sexual intercourse 6 weeks ago and i had my period 2 weeks ago. The doctor said it could be that i had blood in my urine because i just got off a week ago or because i have a kidney infection again ?

can anyone help me ?

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Go ahead with getting a urine analysis done to see if infection is present and to confirm if the blood in urine is from the urinary tract or due to trickle from vagina (spotting). Your other symptoms are suggestive of possibility of pregnancy. If pregnancy is suspected, you should consider requesting for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately) before you start taking any antibiotics. If pregnancy gets confirmed along with urine infection (by your urine analysis report) then safer antibiotics would be prescribed to help you control infection and symptoms. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet. Avoid any heavy work. Be in regular follow-up and monitoring of your treating gynecologist/obstetrician and report any unusual/abnormal/new symptoms immediately.
Take care.
