User:ok Doctor, I have no problems but my wife was diagnosed UTI with ALBUMIN Trace, PUS CELLS 3-5, RBC's 6-8, EPITHELIAL CELLS 2-4, thats why I spoke to Gynae and she advised me to get me tested
Doctor:Did your wife get tested for urine culture and sensitivity?
User:if we co-relate her investigations with me and she is on pills and we dont take any other precautions during our relation... considering all these, my report is still normal ?
Doctor:Yes it is
