Hi, I'm sorry to ask so many questions, but this is really concerning to me.

I got my period (just ending it right around now) starting on October 19th. I believe it's coming to an end right now. I went to the bathroom just now though, and it appears as though I've peed blood. The reason I think it could be that I peed blood was that yesterday evening, I only had a couple of dots of blood on my pad, so I assumed my period was coming to an end. When I went to the bathroom just now, there was definitely blood after I wiped, but it didn't look thick and dark red, like my period blood normally does. It just looked like regular blood.

I had a UTI about a month ago and I took medication for it for a week. When I went back for a follow-up appointment, they said the UTI was gone. But this much blood when I went to the bathroom has me worried that maybe it hasn't gone. Is it likely that I still have a UTI?

Menstrual bleeding can sometimes stop and start, so since your period was just finishing up, it seems likely that this was still from that. If you have any pain or burning with urination, or if there is still blood in the next day or two, then seeing your doctor would be advisable.

I don't have any pain or burning when I urinate. There is still a little bit of blood when I wipe, though. Not a lot, and from what I can see, it doesn't appear to me that I am peeing blood. But recently, my periods have been ending sooner than this. Usually I'm done bleeding within 4 days, and it's already the end of the 5th day. Is this normal?

Also, yesterday I went to the bathroom and when I wiped my backside, there was a little bit of blood on toilet paper. There didn't appear to be blood in the actual stool itself, but should I still be concerned?

Since you did just have your period, and since it is not unusual at all for a period to last a day or two longer than you are used to, it makes sense to assume that what you are seeing is left-over blood from your period.
