A female asked:
Doc said I had blood in urine and had symptoms of uti. Culture was normal. Does that mean blood is gone or does the culture not measure blood in urine?

Hematuria: Hi, urine culture is designed to detect bacteria in urine and confirm the infection that analysis of urine is showing. Urine infection can cause blood in urine and analysis of urine could detect that,once infection is treated then the blood won't show in urine analysis. If blood in urine persists then other tests like a Cystocopy or CT Urogram should be done to find out the cause.good luck.
