 So my dr. ran a UA today because I feel a ''pull'' on the right side of my back when I void.  Also the frequency was/is driving me mad! Well to make a long story short it came back as a trace of blood and wbc's.  Should I be concerned yet if it's only a trace? smhair

Sounds like a possible kidney infection or UTI. Did your doc put you on antibiotics?

There should be no blood in your urine. Any blood means something's not right.

No antibiotics for now because the urine is being cultured..blood in my urine didn't sound normal to me neither so I guess I wait and see. Thank you both for the quick feedback!

I tend to agree with Amy, sounds like an UTI or kidney infection. I know my teenager had a UTI three years ago and had blood in her urine. It cleared up once she was on antibiotics.

Just so you know I have chronic humertia and they have scoped my bladder many many time. They still can't figure out why I have blood in my urine on and off.

Good luck hope you get your results back soon.

Hugs,
Barbara
