Hi Jesse,
 
You never have to apologize for asking these important questions. Is there blood every time you wipe? Is it a lot? Is it just when you urinate or when you have a bowel movement?  I'm just wondering if it's not from your urine, but from perhaps a bowel movement. Either way, I'd get in to see your doctor right away.  Blood in the absense of your period is always something to address right away.
 
I hope this helps Jessie,

I agree with Ginny, you should see your doctor. Take care and let us know how you are doing.

JessieRose--
I get that frequently and you should see a doctor, preferably a urologist. I have urethral polyps, while most people have one or two, I have about forty. I have had the urethra close up from them and was unable to urinate. While the odds they are cancerous are minute, they can become very painful and troublesome. Doctors used to always remove and biopsy them, but now they just burn them off. I'm not saying this is what is wrong, but it is common when you have red blood when you wipe. I'm planning on getting mine taken care of, even though the urologist swears they will grow back, I don't care. My mom had the same thing and hers never grew back. Mine appeared duing a time when my autoimmune disease was bad, and now that it is being treated, I'm confident that they won't come back, at least not as bad.

So I would definitely see the doc and figure out what's up because it can affect more than just your ability to urinate well. It can make other things painful.

I called the doctor today and she is away for the week. Also I did a urine sample and culture today at work. which showed protein and blood and bilirubin. so Im a little nevous I dont know what to expect now and I have to wait until she comes back to make a decisions. The on call doctor wants to change my imuran to Methotrexate. Im just nervous.

Jesse, I would wait until your regular doctor gets back before changing anything.  That's a HUGE leap to take - from Imuran to Methotrexate.  Definitely do your research before switching.  I"m not familiar with Methotrexate, but I am on Imuran. 
 
This might be something that is easily taken care of without the need to switch things up. 
 
Let us know what happens okay.

I'm with Ginny - I wouldn't change that sort of medication without your regular doctor. Unless they think you have some sort of sudden kidney problem (which it doesn't sound like), I very definitely would not switch.

If you want to, you could possibly stop the one you are on, but not start another.

I'm sure your regular doctor has a plan in mind, and it's probably best to wait and see what she has to say.
