Thanks for your query.

If it is the Urine analysis test report you mentioned above then there is no need to worry as 8 cells per HPF is not serious but does indicate presence of injury either in the urinary tract or in the external genitalia.The injury may be minor if the RBC count in the urine is normal.

I suggest you to consult a Gynecologist , as it is not normal for one to bleed vaginally after intercourse even with history of Hysterectomy.Such problems are least expected after 3 years of the surgery.Examination using a speculum will surely provide insights into what causes the bleed.

Hope I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
