Welcome to HCM forum

More than 60 RBC's in urine indicate bleeding from vagina.It can be due to severe UTI also but there should be pus cells and less number of RBC's along with urinary symptoms.Tel her to get an ultrasound done as early pregnancy with slight bleeding is called threatened abortion for which she should take strict bed rest along with folic acid and progesterone under doctor's guidance
