High levels of white blood cells in urine. What could that mean?

Pyuria: White blood cells in urine usually are there because of an infection in the urinary tract. However, they can also be there in large numbers in a female when there is a vaginal infection or when she is having her period (always see red cells also in this situation). My best advice is to see your doctor and have a urine culture done to see what is going on. ...Read more

Does your uterus shed blood cells before your menustral starts is that why I had small trace of blood in urine. No uti or anything else.

Does your uterus shed blood cells before your menustral starts is that why I had small trace of blood in urine. No uti or anything else.

It depends: Menstruation does not just turn on like a faucet. So there maybe a little bit of menstrual bleeding just before the full menstrual cycle begins.
