Could sti cause blood in urine and be missed in urine culture, which was negative? Urine showed infection markers but culture was neg -- worried sti

Hematuria: Blood in the urine is rarely due to STI. It could happen, but the main symptom of STI involving the urinary tract is urethriits, with abnormal discharge and often discomfort on urination, but no blood. However, with "infection markers" (WBC?), it is reasonable to test urine for STI, especially gonorrhea and chlamydia. But most likely it's something else, e.g. passing a stone. Keep working w/ MD. ...Read more

Have pain every time I urinate, test negative for infections. I have UTI symptoms, flank pain, history of kidney stones but no blood in urine, help?!

May still be a UTI: Usually, pain on urination (dysuria) is a symptom of a UTI from which the offending bacteria can be grown from the urine. Less commonly dysuria can occur from the irritation of passing a kidney stone alone (i.e. Not a uti). In other situations, the laboratory can't isolate the microbe because it's too difficult to grow in culture (e.g. Chlamydia)- in that case, you may still actually have a uti. ...Read more

Would there be any connection between HPV without obvious symptoms and microscopic blood in urine without infection?

Would there be any connection between HPV without obvious symptoms and microscopic blood in urine without infection?

HPV and UTIs: Blood in the urine is most likely to be from an infection or inflammation. On very rare occasions blood in the urine can also represent renal cell cancer.

Hpv, the virus that causes warts, cervical and rectal and throat cancer, is most likely not the cause of blood in a urine sample.

Most strains of hpv do not cause cancer so I would advise you not to worry much about this. ...Read more

Seek a second input: Hematuria is not normal. Your symptoms suggest the probability of a stone and or passing a stone. Would suggest getting an imaging if not done. Further more a full urine test would help. A bladder stone can cause UTI like symptoms. In rare cases interstitial cystitis can present like this but rare. Getting a kidney doctor to work up is the next best step. Best of luck hope you feel better. ...Read more

What does small traces of blood in urine without an infection mean?

Blood in urine: If only a trace amount of blood (without any protein in urine), the most likely possibilities include kidney stones or crystals in the urine, recent heavy exercise, thin basement membrane nephropathy, or IgA nephropathy.

Common ones are infections, kidney stones or other kinds of inflammation in the kidneys or bladder. It is almost always a benign (non-serious non-cancerous) cause in a female pt of your age.

I have pain in lower left pelvic area. Female 34. Went to dr last 3 days. Blood in urine. No infection, no stone, or cysts. Frequency to urinate?

Pelvic pain: Many different things can give you those symptoms. Diverticulitis, colitis, colon polyps, adhesions/obstruction, ovarian cysts, less likely cancers can all give you left pelvic pains. If this is recurrent or has lasted more than a couple days I would see a surgeon or gynecologist asap. They will be able to examine, take a good history, obtain images or obtain a colonoscopy that will help. ...Read more

I have chronic pancreatitis due to pancreatic divisum. Now blood in urine. No infections ot kidney stones. A lot of pain. Ct blood normal. CP culprit?

Probable CP: Pancreatic divisum is failure of the dorsal and ventral ducts of the early developing pancreas to fuse into a major duct system. Blood in urine may be from a possible renal or bladder lesion but unrelated to pancreatic problem. Pain when no defined kidney stones would have to be related to common association of pancreatic divisum and pancreatitis. ...Read more

My dr 2 days ago run urine culture to check for bladder infection. No blood in urine. Dr sent me to ER to check for appenditicis. Ct scan normal, bloodwork normal, but had urine in blood 2 days later. Why does this happen? Do I actually have uti?

My dr 2 days ago run urine culture to check for bladder infection. No blood in urine. Dr sent me to ER to check for appenditicis. Ct scan normal, bloodwork normal, but had urine in blood 2 days later. Why does this happen? Do I actually have uti?

Agree with Dr Garber: If you are on, or just finished your period, urine will show blood. Blood means red cells, without white cells UTI (infection) is much less likely. Need to recheck urine to make sure blood is not still there. If still, with protein, need a nephrologist, if blood without protein in urine, need a urologist. ...Read more

Is this new?: You'll do well to have a follow-up, probably with imaging. Many people have this for a lifetime with no problems -- these people often have a mutated collagen gene that allows red cells to pass through the little filters in the kidneys. However, this finding is worrisome for stone, tumor etc if its a new finding at your age. Best wishes. Usually these things are manageable. ...Read more
