It might be good to see your doctor, if you do have an infection it's important to get treatment for it right away.

Hi Jennifer,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  If you have a kidney infection, that might be the cause of your symptoms.  Definitely, bleeding, pain and many other can be symptoms of a kidney infection. Have you seen your doctor?
