Meaning of the urine culture test results?

I think a urologist would better answer my question, however... These are the results of my urine cultures through one local hospital. I know that the last 3 results were "clean catch" tests. Which of these indicate true infection and which are most likely "contamination"?

7/6/11 Escherichia coli

2/22/13, Enterococcus species, and Staphylococcus species (presumptive ID)

1/15/14 Corynebacterium species, Non-hemolytic Streptococcus, Staphylococcus species, Lactobacillus species (Presumptive ID)

1/22/14 Gram Positive flora...

1/28/14 Mixed Gram Positive flora...

Thank for asking to HCM
I can understand your problem, Organism being detected in your urine and now this need to be correlate with the clinical condition and next would be sensitivity this has to be done without this it would be difficult to treat the Urinary tract infection, if you have doubt then you can cross check the result with other one, hope this information helps you have good day.
