Blood in the Urine in Women
First of all, there are some medications and drugs that can change the color of your urine. Some examples of medications that can make your urine red or orange are rifampin, pyridium, phenolphthalein, some laxatives, and vitamins B and C. Foods such as beets, rhubarb and blackberries can turn urine red.
Severe dehydration can also make your urine darker than normal, but it should not cause your urine to be red or brown.
Do you think that a food or medication may be the reason for the color change of your urine?
