It is possible to have spotting or a little more bleeding than that on your expected date of periods for first 3 months of pregnancy and yet all will be well. Still to be on the safer side , it is best to take complete bed rest and a scan if things dont settle in a couple of days. See your gynaec thereafter as she may need to put on some medication if you are threatening to abort. Abortion in early days of pregnancy is a nature's way of getting rid of an abnormal pregnancy. Such pregnancies are not repetitive so not to worry . Take care and all the best !

It is not unusual to have bleeding during first three months of pregnancy. It can be due to non fusion of chorionic layers or you may be suffering from Threatened abortion. , It is very difficult to differentiate between the two!! Hence relax, have a complete bed rest and if possible consult the nearest gyno.

My daughter 17 years old and is presenting with severe kidney pain, nausea, fatigue and positive for haematuria however, CT scan has shown all clear and no kidney stones are present. Why else could there be blood in urine?She is a-febrile and doctor has done a urinalysis and said it is not a UTI although there is blood present.Thanks for your advice! Danielle

Hi! I am Jun, 49 y.o., 5'3'', 160 lbs and had kidney stone treatment 20 years ago. My RBC reflected `too numerous to count' finding. I had urine culture, morphology and ultra sound tests performed. There is nothing painful I feel when urinating, no fever, etc. But I had five urinalysis already and was advised to drink lots of liquid but the condition `TNTC RBC' persists.

During a health check for immigration purposes my 11 and a half year old daughter showed high levels of protein in her urine. Subsequent blood tests found her blood to be normal but her urine test shows microalbumin levels of 288 (they should be less than 20) and Urine ACR of 172.9 (should be less than 3.4). I was referred to a nephrologist and have to wait two weeks for the appointment. My concern is that this should have been treated with more urgency. She has no symptoms of illness at all. Please could you comment on this.

Hi there my 4 year daughter has suffered from urine infections and she had a really bad one at Christmas time where she had very high temp of 40c and when urine sample dipped it showed white blood cells, protein etc. Since Christmas she was very quiet, subdued and tired so much so the nursery had commented on how she was. She often complains of a sore tummy and I have put in other urine sample which came back clear for a urine infection however there was still blood present. Her GP has refered her to paediatrics but my concern is that she has had a low grade temp of 37.7 for weeks now and an on/off tummy pains, she is more lively now but still gets tired at times. I just wanted to know what to ask the paediatrians when I see them and if I should be concerned that theres maybe something else underlying.
