Terminal hematuria but dipstick & lab results normal. How do I know blood is in urine and not coming from vagina? Thanks.

Three consecutive samples of the urine stream are collected—the first few milliliters, midstream, and the last few milliliters in 3 different tubes which can determine the cause of hematuria, also if you are worried about vaginal bleeding a pelvic exam can help determining the cause.
