Thanks Doc for the answer. I dont have burning sensation during urination. I pee frequently whenever I finish 2 small glasses of water or 1 500ml bottle of water. Do you think I have mild UTI in this case?

Presence of 4-6 pus cells,Red blood cells.and bacteria with increased frequency of urination strongly suggests infection

What is the normal pus cells for women, Doc? I spoke to my friend that is a Doctor and she said my urine result is normal and that 4-6 pus cells is normal for women. I had also read in google while searching for answers and one of the doctors mentioned that bacteria in urine is normal. Finally, I dont experience burning sensation when urinating so it can be UTI without this pain? Apologies for the questions.

Brief Answer:
Normal urine will have 2-3 pus cells.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for follow up.
Normal urine will have 2-3 pus cells but will not have red blood cells.
It will be better if you get urine culture done to rule out active infection
It could be a mild inflammation of bladder mucosa.(Cystitis)
Tanks and Regards.

You mean STD? Is this the most cause or Kidney/bladder stones is the most cause why men got high pus cells or UTI?
 
 
Answered by Dr. P. T. Patil 2 hours later
Brief Answer:
Not STD.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for follow up.
One can get simple bacterial infection due to unprotected sex .

Stones in urinary system are are always formed secondary to infection.or due to derangement in calcium metabolism or precipitation of Oxalate in urine.

I have not heard of men having high pus cells in urine unless they have UTI.
Thanks and Regards.
