Blood when urinating in women causes, symptoms and treatment

Doctors call urine with blood – hematuria. Let’s figure out what it is and what to do when blood is found in urine. The urine of a healthy person is yellow, free of impurities and sediment. Hematuria (blood in the urine) does not occur in healthy people. So this is a signal of illness.

But is it hematuria? Possible elementary consumption of foods with a large amount of red pigment: beets, carrots, red and purple berries, fruit drinks and juices. Or taking drugs like aspirin, ibuprofen, rifampicin, phenolphthalein drugs? But if, in addition to changing the color of urine, you are worried about pain, fever, feeling unwell, then you need to urgently consult a doctor.

Why is hematuria dangerous?

Any bleeding is dangerous for humans, because the blood supply in the body is limited. This can lead to anemia, organ dysfunction, kidney failure, and even death.

Diagnosis of the disease

It is necessary to remember what happened to you the day before: what you ate and drank, what drugs you took, chronic diseases, injuries, and so on. How the disease developed: quickly or gradually, with or without fever, where and how it hurt, there was more or less urine. All this will help the doctor to quickly and accurately determine the cause of the disease.

  • Analysis of urine. According to the results of the analysis, it is possible to judge what is contained in the urine and in what quantity. This will enable the doctor to determine the source of the bleeding.
  • Blood test. If there is an inflammatory process in the body, then this will be seen as a result of this analysis.
  • Ultrasound of the urinary tract and abdominal cavity. With this study water, volumetric formations, such as stones, tumors, hematomas, are clearly visible.
  • Cystoscopy. An instrumental type of research, in which the walls of the bladder are examined.
  • Excretory urography. It is necessary to assess the work of the urinary system.
  • Consultation of related specialists: gynecologist (to exclude uterine bleeding, ectopic pregnancy and other gynecological pathology), proctologist (since bleeding can be from the rectum, for example, with hemorrhoids).

    What to do if blood is found in the urine?

    First, make sure it’s really blood. To do this, you can urinate in a clean, transparent container. And if the resulting urine is colored pink or red, then this is most likely hematuria.

    Secondly, do not resort to self-medication and seek medical attention immediately. All that is allowed is to put cold on the suprapubic area.

    Hematuria treatment

    Treatment directly depends on the cause of hematuria:

    • Urolithiasis is monitored by urologists. Treatment consists of removing the stone from the urinary tract. How exactly this will be done is decided individually, as an option it can be crushed using ultrasound.
    • Inflammatory diseases respond to antibiotic therapy.
    • For autoimmune diseases, hormonal drugs are used.
    • The consequences of injuries are corrected by surgeons by suturing or resecting the damaged organ.
    • Tuberculosis and kidney tumors are subject to treatment in specialized medical institutions.
    • Gynecological causes of hematuria are usually subject to surgical treatment, for example, an ectopic pregnancy.
  • Detonic – a unique medicine that helps fight hypertension at all stages of its development.
