Seeing your GP

Your GP will ask about your symptoms and carry out a physical examination to help determine the cause of the blood in your urine. For men, this may include a rectal examination and women may have a vaginal examination.

They will also arrange blood/and or urine tests to look for signs of an infection. If they think that an infection is likely, they may prescribe some antibiotics before you get yourresults and will refer you to a specialist if your testresults later show you don't have an infection.

In some cases, your GP may recommend keeping an eye on your symptoms to see if they get better on their own over time.
