This answer was rated:

On two occasions, one about three months ago and the second yesterday, when I started to urinate, I first passed a small blood clot, then a few drops of what looked like only blood, then the rest of the urine was passed normally. There have been no more incidents between the two, and urine has been passed normally today.
JA: The Doctor can help. To begin, what are your symptoms? Have you used any medication for this?
Customer: Symptoms as described. No medication.
JA: Thanks for that. Have you seen a doctor about this?
Customer: No- with onset of lockdown I did not want to risk either GP or me!
JA: Thank you so much for your answers. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history the Doctor should know?
Customer: I have high blood pressure - treated - and about two years ago had a UTI - antibiotics cleared it quickly. I was tested for prostrate cancer about 25 years ago - negative.

81, and am taking medication for blood pressure and cholestorol

Are you on any blood thinner?

Customer: replied 10 days ago.

Thanks for the details

This can be due to the blood thinners you are taking

And secondly it can be a prostate problem

You do need to see the doctor for an examination of the prostate and an ultrasound

Also a urine test should be done

If the prostate is okay then this is most likely a side effect of blood thinner

Please do let me know if you have any other question

Thanks - will follow up. The blood thinner was changed (previously aspirin) after a pacemaker was fitted about two years ago

You are welcome

Please do let me know if you have any other question
