Blood clots in urine
I gave birth to my first baby 9 days ago (I was induced and gave birth vaginally. I had an epidural and catheder). I' ve now noticed blood clots in my urine. It doesn' t really hurt when I urinate but I do feel a little uncomfortable all the time. Is this normal? If not, what can it be...a bladder infection?

It may be blood from the uterus which comes out when you pass urine. Give it a few days and see whether it lessens.
