Brief Answer:
Trace blood in urine

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for contacting HCM with your health care concerns

You are wanting me to review your lab test. Urinalysis showed a trace of blood but no other abnormality. This trace could be left over blood from your cycle. This trace is not significant because on the microscopic evaluation there was no blood cells seen. Therefore the trace is an anomaly and not significant. Your UA is normal with nothing to be worried about

I hope I answered you question. Please contact us again if you have any additional questions
