presence of bacteria can not always be documented on a culture report.
inadequate number of organism, previous treatment with anitbiotic, improper sample collection , handling can all lead to culture negative report. treatment is not only based on the report but also the symptoms, presentation , clinical clues.
so you need not bother about being negative in culture.
hope this is helpful
