Hello dear. Welcome to Healthcaremagic. I read your query and I understand your concern. I think it is possible that leep cause false blood in urine because after the procedure for more than a week you have bloody secretions from wound created by the procedure also may give bad smell. If you have UTI bacteria are present in urine.
Take care.
Hope my answer was helpful, if you have any other questions I'll be glad to help you.
Best regards. Dr.Olgeta Xhufka ( general and family physician ).
