Can a Urinary Tract Infection cause you to bleed a little??

Could this be caused by the Urinary Tract Infection that I have had and been on medicine for this week?? I just thought about that.

I am starting my 5th week of pregnancy today and I have had a little very very light pinkish discharge (sometimes maybe a touch darker). It seems to be only when I go to the bathroom and wipe ( not in underwear). It's not very much at all, and I am a little crampy but nothing major at all. I haven't had sex or anything like that. I am a worry wart! Is this normal?? Has anybody else had this happen?

Last period on May 5, 2006 just in case that info is needed. This probably would have been my period week, but 100% sure. I did call the doctor and he said it isn't unusual for this to happen, and everything could be just fine, but he couldn't say that 100%. He also said unless I was bleeding really heavy and had really severe cramps, I should just wait and see my doctor after the weekend. ( My appt is Monday)!

Thanks.

Are you in any pain? A UTI can REALLY hurt. If you let it go on too long, you will eventually pee blood. If you're on medication for a UTI, then it's probably clearing up. I wouldn't worry, but maybe call the doctor when you get the chance, to ease your mind.
Pregnancy is nothing to mess around with. Take care and good luck!

    It's normal but if your having severe cramps, you might just want to go the emergency room or something.

    no bladder infections don't cause bleeding at all what ur experienceing is just because you should be having ur period but because ur not ur body is getting rid of a little bit of blood either that or its implation bleeding but i don't think its that its most probably because you are a t the time of ur period this is normal like ur doc said, and slight cramping your having could be ur utuerus expanding, if you do start heavy bleeding and getting more servre cramps then u need to go to the hospital because that is a sign of miscarriage, but just take it easy im sure everything will be ok!! also drink plently of water that will flush your infection out.

    The last UTI I had caused me to bleed, yes. It was a tiny bit…so tiny, I didn't even notice it in my underwear…only when I wiped. It wasn't bright red blood though…very very pink (lighter than watermelon color) and looked very thin on the tissue. They also confirmed it in the urine test I had done to detect the UTI. Even though they couldn't actually see the blood in the urine, the testing strip they used detected it.

    It's very common to have this happen…especially if it's a bad UTI, but you still might want to mention it to your dr. on Monday.
