    So I'm a 22 yr old female. I'm scheduled to have an kidney biopsy Wednesday the 13th and they told me I am supposed to watch the bleeding in my urine afterwards and that it should go away within a day but I think my period will come on either Tuesday night or that morning, how do I know if the bleeding is from my kidneys or my period?
