Recently my urine was tested with a dipstick and then sent for urinalysis twice. My doctor said that there was a plus 1 red blood cell in my urine. The first test was done during my period therefore she asked to repeat it. The second test was done 3 days before my next period. I am 33 and I had a cesearean section 10 months ago. Could the surgery have cause damage? How worried should I be about these results?
