Q: What causes traces of blood in urine?

My urine is dark in color, like a trace of blood is there, and it shows up mostly at the end of urinating along with a lot of bubbles. My doctor ruled out a bladder infection. Does anyone know what this could be?

There are numerous causes of blood in the urine, hematuria.  THe most common are infections, stones and tumors of the urinary tract. If you'd like another opinion, I suggest you see a Urologist. Here's a link to what you can expect at that appointment.
