Does flaky particles in urine mean I am pregnant ?

To whom this may concern: Two days ago, I got four tubes of blood drawn to check my liver enzymes (I was recently released from an inpatient facility and had to have two tubes drawn there, around November 26) and yesterday, I was told that they were normalized and that was it; however, my question in regards to pregnancy is that I m wondering if whether or not I am pregnant would show up on the charts for the blood tests? I wonder because I saw white flakey materials in my urinalysis yesterday at an outpatient facility and researched reasons and one was that it was something common in pregnancies. I had sex early November, got my period days later, and got my period again somewhat early December (I recently got off of birth control and I ve never had a steady schedule before with my periods). I was just wondering if I should be concerned about possibly being pregnant, or if the urinalysis is probably something related to stress? I m also curious to know if I would have been told at both my inpatient facility and my family doctor s office in regards to the blood tests (blood was drawn on both occasions)? Thank you.

Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Firstly, pregnancy tests are not carried out on a 'routine' basis when blood or urine samples are tested. Secondly, before carrying out a pregnancy test, the patient's consent has to be obtained. So, if the doctors have not informed you about this, then it is unlikely that they are going to do a pregnancy test on your samples. Having whitish flakes in urine is not a specific indicator of pregnancy. It could be due to contaminants from the vagina or due to a urinary tract infection.

Best wishes,
Dr. Sheeba Stephen
