Hello and welcome to HCM.

Thank you for your query.

From your urine analysis it clearly indicates the presence of a urine tract infection (UTI), but I am sure you have been informed about this as your query is about UTI's.

Now coming to your query, the cause for UTI's are many, but let me list some of the most common ones for you relating to your age and sex. They are:
-As females have genitalis that is more exposed, this makes them more vulnerable to UTI's than men
-Sexual intercourse is another common cause
-Use of urinary catheters
-Kidney stones
-Kidney disorders
-Spermicide use
-Long duration's of being seated
and many more.

I would suggest you visit your doctor who will initiate a course of antibiotics (in case of bacterial source) and anti-fungals (fungal source), pain management medication (if pain is present) and a potassium chloride based solution (alkalizer syrup) which will help in relieving symptoms of UTI.

You could also request for a urine culture examination, which will provide information on the infection-causing organism, this in turn helps in selecting the most suitable mode of treatment.

I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications. I would gladly help you.

Best wishes.
