Hi there,

Thanks for writing in.

It appears that you might be having a urinary tract infection as evident by the WBC 4-8/hpf, and many bacteria. What was the indication for doing the urine examination? What symptoms did you present with at the time? It would be wise to get a urine culture and sensitivity test done and empirically start antibiotic treatment as advised by your doctor.

In the meantime, drink plenty of fluids a day to flush out the bacteria and toxins in the urine. A glass or two of cranbberry juice might also help.

Follow good perineal hygiene. Ensure regular periodic emptying of the bladder every couple of hours.

Abstain from sexual intercourse till the infection clears.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
Dr. Divya Kuttikrishnan
