One of the reasons why you can see blood in your urine is because you have a urinary tract infection (also known as a UTI). UTIs occur in people when bacteria enter the body through the urethra and then multiply in the bladder, causing symptoms such as a constant need to urinate, pain and burning sensations while urinating, blood in the urine, and occasionally a very potent urine odor. UTIs can also be transmitted sexually. If you start noticing any of these, especially blood in your urine, you should consider going to the hospital for better treatment and a checkup. This is because germs can cause difficulties if they remain in your body for an extended period of time.

2. Kidney Stones; this is yet another reason why people detect blood in their urine. Kidney stones can occur for a number of different reasons. The symptoms that you will encounter as a result of your toxins and particles crystallizing in your kidneys, which happens frequently when you do not drink enough water, include frequent urination, blood in the urine, and a great deal more. You should be aware that seeing blood in your urine could also be the consequence of the development of kidney stones that you have not yet attended to, so it is important that you are aware of this possibility.

3. A swollen prostate (in men); this is one of the most common causes why men have blood in their urine. If you are a man or a young adult and you start noticing consistent blood in your urine each time you go to the restroom, you should see a doctor as soon as possible because there is a possibility that your prostate has enlarged, sometimes as a result of something that can be easily treated by professionals. If you feel the need to urinate more frequently, even when you haven't had a lot of water, this could be an indicator that you have an enlarged prostate.
When Should One Visit a Doctor?
If you notice blood in your urine more than once, you should get a checkup at the doctor's office just to be safe. However, if you notice it just once, you probably don't need to worry about it too much. If the presence of blood in your urine is accompanied by additional symptoms, such as nausea, frequent urination, a burning feeling while peeing, or similar sensations, you should arrange an appointment with a medical professional as soon as possible.
