OK, so today when I woke up I wiped like a pink spot on the TP. I've never really had spotting around o and well I'm still pretty pre-o in my opinion, I'm not expecting to o in the next day or two. And I'm having a little bit of pain after I go to the bathroom, I'm sort of wondering if it is a UTI, I'd just go get checked out, but nowhere's open today, so anybody ever have any blood with a UTI?
I've had a UTI, but only in pregnancy and symptoms were really masked, I mainly only had contractions, which hurt, which caused me to go in, and it took two times to diagnose it as a UTI...
I'd get it checked out. Pain around going to the bathroom shouldn't be ignored.
As for the spotting, could be related to a UTI...but if it's related to ovulation, it can happen as your estrogen levels first begin to rise (so at the beginning of the fertile phase, when you first notice a change in sensation). It can happen closer to Peak, or in between!
If you got pink on the TP and it was from pee I would really, really expect there to be pink in the toilet too.
I used to get UTIs every year. The first two started as constant need to pee + horrible pain of peeing, and the third one started with no symptoms except tons and tons of blood in the toilet. It was 4 months into the cycle that never ends and I was ecstatic for about 15 seconds thinking my period had started. Nope.
And I am testament that someone who has never, ever had spotting her cycle can randomly have it happen. Strange but true.
You can have blood in the urine without it being visible to the eye. Another source of blood on the TP can be a yeast infection. I get quite frequent kidney infections and have never noticed blood in the urine.
I had a molar extracted and it became a dry socket so I had to have 3 weeks of antibiotics and got the worst YI of my life. I was spotting, it was hurting to pee, etc. My doc made sure it wasn't another Kidney infection, so make sure you get your urine tested!

I'm a little late on this, and places were open today so you may have gone in already, BUT..
bleeding can be a symptom of UTI - it's a pretty common one. Also bladder pain, kidney pain, burning when you pee, a feeling of constantly having to go (even when you don't), sudden urges seemingly out of nowhere.. I've had like a bajillion UTIs in my life, and the symptoms are never the same twice.
In fact, if I drink too much soda in a day, I start to get symptoms, but all it takes is a lot of water and they clear up. When I was pregnant I'd frequently test positive for a UTI, but even if I didn't take the antibiotics it would clear up (sometimes it didn't, but I would have been on antibiotics for almost my entire pregnancy, and that didn't appeal to me).
