Brief Answer:
Reports are Ok

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for asking

I read your question and i understand your concern. Your urine culture report says there is no growth of organisms. Means the infection you had is treated and its a good thing.

In order to avoid UTis again, cranberry juices are not that much help as it has no proven benefits yet but i have seen many patients giving me thumbs up for its use. But remember these are not alone. It needs good coital and toilet habits, perfect hygiene, frequent fluids intake, safe and protected coitus and good hygiene measures including keeping the groin sweat and hair free.

I hope it helps. Take good care of yourself and dont forget to close the discussion please.
