So I just need some advice? Been having irregular bleeding the last few months, cyclical beast tenderness, last week or so had constant (not severe) pain lower abdo and back. Saw GP who has referred me for urine and blood tests, also a scan on thurs this week.
Took sample to nurse this morning, she tested it, said tree was 'very slight blood trace' in sample, negative for protein and glucose. So now I'm on the ceiling with worry!! Anyone else had similar??
Various reasons for slight blood trace - could easily be contamination of your urine specimen by the irregular bleeding. Sounds like you have a good GP who is really on the case which is great, and not just dismissing your symptoms as 'hormonal/menopausal' . Although it can be stressful to have to go through these investigations the information gained is definitely worth the stress involved. I know none of this really helps but I didn't want to just read and run.
Thanks Izzy I'm convinced I am on borrowed time!!! Lol. Never had any health problems, apart from high BP, so something like this which some people may see as trivial..... I'm not! I'm 42 so done pretty well so far! I'm not bleeding at the moment and never noticed and blood on the toilet paper or anything after urinating. I keep googling which I KNOW is wrong but feeling really apprehensive. My GP is great, quite young and extremely good looking so quite embarrassing when he asked if I have painful intercourse! I've been single like forever lol
My urine has shown a slight trace of blood the last two times it has been tested. GP asked if I had my period (I hadn't) then told me not to worry about it and nothing more done. It sounds as if your GP is being very thorough so please try not to worry!
Whoosh thanks for replying. I think if it was just the trace amount of blood in urine I wouldn't worry as much but coupled with other symptoms? Pain feels like period type pain and back ache seems almost muscular? No pain when passing urine so not thinking cystitis? Or even a UTI? X
I have had this several times, last time I was sent for a scan expecting to find kidney stones but nothing was found. This was a couple years ago and I'm still alive . I'm sure the nurse/gp is right and there's nothing to worry about.
