Having 5-8 pus cells in urine is worrisome, it means infection which is not yet symptomatic. since this infection can lead to complications esp during delivery, get a urine culture done and take antibiotic accordingly. Protein trace is a normal finding during pregnancy.

Hi I think I m 4-5 weeks pregnant. I ve taken multiple tests that are all negative. My doctor today took a urine test that was negative but they also took blood for a blood test. Waiting for the result. Earlier I was having intercourse with my boyfriend & I started spotting an orangish color during sex. I m wearing a pad right now to be safe but there s nothing on it. Should I be worried? I have a lot of the pregnancy signs. My doctor thinks I am too. She said everything sounds good like my bowels.
