Question: If you have a cold, could that show up as trace leukocytes in your urine with a UTI test or do trace leukocytes only show up if you have a UTI or Vagina infection?

Brief Answer:
unlikely

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic .

If you have cold that is unlikely to cause leucocytes in urine.

The cause of leucocytes in urine may be
-UTI
-vaginal infection
-contamination of urine
-contamination of kit

For vaginal infection you may have vaginal discharge foul smelling and itching. For UTI you may have burning sensation or increased frequency of micturition.

I would suggest you to consult your doctor and confirm UTI which is most likely cause of leucocytes in urine and get treated as UTI drugs are prescription drugs.

Hope I have answered your query. If any further queries are there I would love to help.

Regards
Dr.Deepika Patil

For the past 2-3 months, I ve had on and off vaginal discharge. Only a week ago did I get what I think was my period, and then again, the vaginal discharge. It s really worried me because along with it, I ve also had a mild pain. I felt around and there was a lump..in my lower left abdomen. It s been there for a while, I think. But, I m worried now. Please help.

hi, my boyfriend and i had unprotected sex back in august. Im still bleeding every month but i dont have clots or cramps and i used to have horrible cramps. I've gained 13lbs but i really don't look pregnant and everyday i feel flutters in my lower abdomen but im not sure if it's just my nerves twiching, my feet swell,i get leg cramps, and sometimes pain in my lower abdomen there are also times when my cervix hurts a little, and i have tons of vaginal discharge.I have taken numerous hpt's all negative and i've been to the doctor's twice once for a urine test and once for a blood pg test when i would have been 8weeks all negative i asked for an ultrasound but was told i could not have one since my results were negative. i do not have health insurance so i have to pay for my doctor's vists out of pocket. Im a little hesitant about having another blood test since the first was negative and it costs me $150. i would currently be 23 weeks if i am pregnant. i have been taking prenatal vitamins just in case. I would be grateful for any advice
