Brief Answer:
its not normal report for women

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic .

I read your query and understand your concern .

In your reports abnormal findings are presence of pus cells, bacteria and cloudy appearance. Rest all findings are within normal limits.

These 3 positive findings suggest you may be suffering from urinary tract infection(UTI). You should go for Urine Culture and sensitivity test to know the specific type of bacteria and the drugs it is sensitive to.

I would suggest you to consult your doctor and get treated as the drugs for UTI are prescription drugs.

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

Regards

Thanks for your reply Doc. I honestly dont experience pain when urinating or burning sensation when urinating. One of my friends that is a Doctor said 4-6hpf pus cells for women is normal and 0-2 for men. I have also read that bacteria in the urine is normal. Please enlighten me.

Brief Answer:
i don't agree

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Cloudy urine and presence of bacteria are not normal in urine.

Pus cells 0-2/hpf in males and 3-4/hpf in females is acceptable, but not 4-6/hpf as is your case.

In my opinion, though you are asymptomatic, but still you need to get this treated, as this is mild UTI, as per me. And as advised earlier, get a urine culture and sensitivity done and start on antibiotics like nitrofurantoin at present, and change later according to culture and sensitivity report.

But for the prescription, you need to see a local doctor.

Brief Answer:
see below answer

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Usually UTI cause kidney or bladder or both stones . Less chances are stones causing UTI. In UTI bacteria act as nidus and cause deposition and stone formation. UTI also changes pH of urine.

Since you didn't mention about abdominal pain so I assumed you don't have it so I didn't mention about urinary tract stones as cause . To suspect urinary tract stones usually there will be abdominal pain with or without radiation to pubis.

Hope I have answered your query .
