Welcome to healthcaremagic,

protein in the urine is possible because of menstruation. You need to repeat the clean mid stream catch urine after the periods have finished

Hello.
Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
Yes it might be one of the many causes. During menstruation there is high chance that some broken down blood might have got mixed showing the protein test positive. But do a repeat test after your periods are over to rule out any actual pathology.
