Post microscopic blood in urine

Hi:

Last year I had a undiagnosed kidney infection. I must have had it for weeks without even realizing it and just thinking it was a bad back ache.

Well, I got treated for it. Then I subsequently was diagnosed with microscopic blood in urine. I was then given a kidney ultrasound (normal) and a cytoscopy (normal). I still test positive for microscopic amounts of blood (trace levels). I do have a history of nocturia (urination at night). But that runs in my family.

My doctor said this microscopic blood is not normal and wants me to be retested again in 3 months.

What could the cause be????? I always thought it was the result of that bad kidney infection.

I am a bit worried.
