Tests are accurate: Today's home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, vaginal spotting, or medications. A test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (or when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a negative result may be due to testing too early, such as less than 2 weeks after conception. ...Read more

Hello! I've noticed dark brown/black-ish colored flecks in my (clear) urine. They are thin and flat, and sink to the bottom of the toilet. Help??
You need an exam: In a woman, these could be small vaginal blood clots. Could be "products of conception".

I have 3 boys. I was cleaning under toilet lid I noticed that some urine dried dark yellow/brown. No one is complaining or sick. Normal?
Personal wipes/wash: I agree: this is maladaptive learned behavior:so like washing hands, keep sanitary antispetic wipes or personal hygiene wipes by the toilet along with a sign:"clean up you mess" and wash your hands". Also a good time for the "lid down" lecture. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Get urinalysis: It is very hard to say if your urine is abnormal just by its appearance. Dark urine could be due to dehydration, blood in urine or an infection. It is best to get a urine dipstick test to check for any of the above. If you have a fever or symptoms of difficulty or painful urination, you could have a bladder infection and should see a doctor ...Read more

Get evaluated: Brown discoloration of the urine is usually attributable to blood, and in certain cases can be provoked by running or intense exercise. This is usually benign. A more serious condition is rhabomyolysis, where sustained, strenuous exercise can cause muscle necrosis, whose breakdown products appear in the urine. This is a serious condition that could lead to kidney damage and needs evaluation. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
