Dear Mrs. Sue,

There is no way a urine test can show if the blood came from the bladder or the vagina. However, there must have been evidence of urine infection, as the treatment that the doctors have started has already begun to improve her condition. You may want to follow this up over a period of time to see if she is menstruating, but I think it is extremely unlikely if she has no hormonal problem or disease.

Regards, Dr. Taher
