Traces Of Blood In Urine

Decided to see my doctor yesterday about my bad back and my anxiety symtoms with having the feeling to go the toilet (frequent urination), which I have had lot's of times over the years with this anxiety.

He checked me over and said it looks like i have pulled a muscle in my back and then asked me to do a urine sample, which my wife passed me a bottle to use, which she had at home.

He dipsticked the urine sample and said no infection but traces of blood and he would like me to come back in two weeks and do another dipstick test etc.

I have never had this before and i went back to work feeling very low etc and thinking how do i get through the next two weeks with this on my mind.

Then in the afternoon, my wife phoned me up and said she thinks she passed me the wrong bottle, which she passed me a used the bottle which weeks ago she used because of having long belts of bleeding (period), which the doctor then tipped down the sink and passed my wife back, which she then rinsed it out and put it away.

Because of this mistake, could the traces of blood be from my wife still be present in the bottle, even though she rinsed it out etc? I'm just hoping this is the reason and I'm trying to think positive etc because the traces of blood in my urine has worried me about having the deaded "c".

Re: Traces Of Blood In Urine

Hi when i was pregnant every urine sample that i gave had traces of blood in it but no signs of infection. The doctor was never concerned despite my concerns and they never said that it was due to pregnancy (as obviously yours isnt!). The traces of blood maybe signs that an infection is starting and thats why your doctor asked you to come back in 2 weeks, i was also told that you can get traces of blood in your urine if you have cystitus, did the dr mention this?

Re: Traces Of Blood In Urine

I was wondering if I should go back with a fresh sample in a new sample bottle, invade they picked-up blood from which my wife had because of period problems or wait until two weeks time?

Any advice please?

I think if you're worried, then call the sugery and ask to speak to the doctor or one of the nurses and explain it like you have here, and tell them you'd like to bring in another urine sample for them to test. A dip-stick test takes no time and even if you can't get in to see the doctor, the practice nurses could do it and reassure you.

Re: Traces Of Blood In Urine

I get a lot of bladder infections, so im forever going into my doctors and getting the receptionists to test it for me. It takes about 30 secs of their time to do it. So my advice is to get a clean bottle from them at the desk and do a sample in the doctors. (not in front of everyone though lol)
Ive had blood in my urine before and my GP wasnt in the least bit worried by it.

Re: Traces Of Blood In Urine

At Xmas I had terrible problems with urine; always having to go but only producing dribbles, a full bladder feeling all the time, having to get up in the night and horrendeous back pain. After constant nagging by my mrs I went to the Dr who done a urine test. Like you, no infection but traces of blood. She said it could be an infection (which I did not believe as there is a bit on the stick for infection) or a kidney stone. After a week of antibiotics I was re-checked and all was clear though i felt worst. I googled it and freaked. This was the start of my HA. To cut a long story short, I decided to go private a few weeks back now, saw a fantastic urologist who scanned my kidneys and bladder with ultrasound. Again there were traces of blood in my urine. He said that as he had felt my prostrate this could have caused the blood and that these dip sticks are too bloody sensitive though to be on the safe side he would send my sample to a lab to have a test for red blood cells. All was clear.

Exercise can cause blood in urine too. My advice would be to go back to Dr`s explain that there may have been a mix up and have a re-test. If you used the wrong tube then yes, as these dip sticks are so sensitive.

Re: Traces Of Blood In Urine

Ive recently been to the Doctors regaarding a bladder infection. I was going a biit more than normal.

Dr asked me for a sample, which I provided. He did a dip stick test and he said there was a slight trace of blood in my urine. Nothing to worry about.

He gave me antibiotics and its all sorted now.

Dont worry, its probably an infection! Get plenty of Cranberry juice drunk! Tastes like poo at first, but youll soon get used to it!

I must admit, I have been doing exercises alot (loosing the pounds) and this was what caused my back pain (sit-up bench), so I was not aware this can cause blood etc.

My doctor said he would send off mine to make sure there was no infection, which he said there was not according to the dip-stick etc.

Re: Traces Of Blood In Urine

The dip stick will tell if you have an infection. It`s sent off to look for red blood cells.

It sounds like your`s is down to excercise for sure.
