Yes. One symptom of a UTI is blood in your pee. If you think you have a UTI, especially if you’re peeing blood, it’s really important to see a doctor or nurse and get treated right away. UTIs don’t go away on their own. Sometimes it can spread to your kidneys and make you really sick. Plus, UTIs can be very painful and uncomfortable.

Symptoms of UTIs include:

  • feeling like you have to pee even when you know you don’t

  • pain or burning when you pee

  • bad-smelling or cloudy urine

  • blood or pus in your urine

  • soreness, pressure, or cramps in your lower belly, back, or sides

The good news is that a UTI is usually easy to treat with medicine (antibiotics) your doctor or nurse will give you that clears the infection right up. So contact a doctor or nurse, like the ones at your nearest Planned Parenthood health center if you think you have a UTI.
