Im in my mid 20's. male. fit.

About 2 years ago I had a spell of having blood in my urine.
Very first time it happened, there were just a few drops when I had nearly finished urinating.
It seemed to happen every weekend (after having a night on the beer) and progressively, when it DID occasionally happen, there seemed to be much more blood as opposed to just a few drops at the end of urinating.

All of a sudden it seemed to stop and i've been fine for a 2 years.
I assumed that after such a big gap of being fine that whatever it was had gone.

Well, it happened last sunday morning after a night of drinking for the first time in 2 years.
This time my urine just looked a little 'dark' but I knew something was wrong, and then half way through it turned quite red and a piece of, what looked like clotted blood, flew out as well.
Im not a big drinker as such.
I have a good few drinks on a saturday night, but other than that, I hardly drink.

Since it happened that last Sunday, I haven't been drinking alcohol and have upped my water, and my urine has remained perfectly clear.
I know that next time I have a beer, I will have blood in my urine.

What could the problem be?
Why would it only happen the morning after consuming alcohol???? its not like im an old alcoholic!
