Routine urine test showed high RBC count, pus cells, have burning sensation, sexually active. Cause of elevated counts?

Hi, I am a 28 year old female and my height is 5 3. I currently have a fiance and we are in an intimate relationship involving sex. for travel purposes, I was asked to do a Urinary Full Report and most of the results came out normal. The doctors here were concerned about my RBC count which was 15-20 and my PUS cell count which was 2-3. I had a slight burning sensation about 4 days ago but now I don t feel anything. Do you know why these counts are high? Please advise. Thank you.

Welcome to HCM
In sexually active females of your age it is very common to have Urinary Tract Infection and also if your cycle dates are near by when you gave sample may be the reason of RBCs in the urine sample.
As burning sensation was there ,what you can do is just give a clean catch repeat sample if these are not your cycle dates or if yes give sample after 3-4 days. If infection comes then Urinary specific Antibiotics may be required for you.If normal just take care of your health.
In the meantime drink plenty of fluids if possible crineberry juice. It will help to flush urinary system
Advise would be to have protected sex as it is safe.
Good Luck
