Puss cells are 45-50 and from reading the previous questions about the UTI , I felt that there can be danger on the baby , I need your advice and how to handle this situation. Much grateful . Mohamed

Hello and thank you for asking Healthcaremagic.

The signs are that your wife is experiencing an Urinary tract infection,and If left untreated it might hurt the baby,the wife,or even both.

You need to consult her OB/GYN for the right antibiotic to be used because only her doctor knows what will not harm the baby.

If you have any other question,don't hesitate to contact me.
