Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :  
How can i help you?
User :   hi, i need to know the difference between period blood and blood in the urine
Doctor :   It is difficut to know if the blood in the urine is actually from the kidneys or because of menstruation.
Doctor :  
there is no way of differentiating it.
Doctor :  
The only way to know is to test the urine when not on periods.
User :   im having a problem with my one remaining kidney, is it most likely to be from the urine? or just a terrible coincidence

User :   but im terribly worried
