What are the remaining possible causes of intermittant heavy blood in urine if the following tests proved negative:   bacteria, lower body xray, internal bladder viewing, and prostate manipulation?

I am 28 years old female. I've had hematuria on and off for 2 years now. I'm 96.5 lbs. What am i going to do with my hematuria?
