    Why is my period only coming out when peeing?

    I missed my period in February and since then my period has come a week late every month.

    I am on my period at the moment, and for the last two days there has been no more than a teaspoon of blood on my pad. I have noticed that after I pee blood seems to be on the toilet paper after I wipe, that is how I noticed my period had finally arrived as it was about 10 days late this time.

    During my periods I get lower right back pain and headaches mostly on my right temple. For the last 6 months I have also noticed that I have to pee more frequently.

    About a month ago I had sever pains around my navel area for 3 days straight before getting better.

    After that my Doctor thought I had a UTI and treated me with antibiotics. I still feel the need to pee a little every half an hour though.

    Can anyone tell me what is wrong with me?

    If you are still having frequency of urination then I suggest that you have a urine test to exclude bacteria. Some women if they have a UTI can experience bleeding from the urethra. Since you completely missed period in February and it is unclear to me if you are having a period or bleeding from a urinary tract infection and if you are sexually active you may need to consider whether you need a pregnancy test.
    If you continue to have frequency which is not caused by an infection then you may need to see a specialist for some bladder studies.
