Around a month ago I had a severe UTI. I was peeing blood and passing clots. The pain was unbelieveable. I mean I am tough, but I screamed when I went.
Well the hospital doctor put me on cipero for I think it was 5 days. I did a follow up with the health department doctor who found no sign of infection left. I went back last Friday for a pap and I told them that the pain had never really left and was pretty bad. The skipped the pap and did a urin test finding a BAD Bladder infection. Putting me back on cipero and sending the rest of the urin in for a culture to find the right antibiotic to kill it.
On the brighter side, My boyfriend took care of me all weekend, right down to doing dishes and cooking. He is a good cook and does that sometimes, but Never the dishes in the 3 yrs we've been together. lol Gotta Love him.

Bleeding UTIs are not a recent event, but I've had many over the years. That was pretty short turn around time. This is something that can be shared. Has the BF checked in with his doc? What you are describing certainly happens, but sometimes it is reinfection, not a new infection. Just something to consider.

I think it just went dormant with the first round of meds. and decided to come out as they wore off. I never felt like it was gone, so I guess I know my body better than even the tests do.
