Question:

There's blood and clots of blood in my boyfriend's urine. He feels the need to urinate frequently. There's burning and pain with urination.

Answer:

That amount of blood in the urine is not normal. Blood in the urine can be a result of infections (urinary tract infections, STDS), but blood can also represent a kidney stone, and even malignancies (cancer). Based on the symptoms described, a kidney stone or a UTI would be high on the list. Blood in the urine needs to be evaluated by a physician in person as soon as possible. The urine should be analyzed for infections and treated if present. An ultrasound or CT scan may be needed to determine if a stone is present. No matter the diagnosis, blood in the urine as described should be evaluated in person as soon as possible.
