Pregnant, urine test showed pus cells, do not have any UTI symptoms. Is it dangerous for the baby?

Hi! I m 20 weeks pregnant and I had a urine infection right at the beginning of my pregnancy when I didn t even know that I was pregnant. We did a full urine report at 8 weeks pregnancy and there were 20-25 Pus cells in my urine but I had no signs of discomfort. Gyno intructed me to drink alot. We got another urine test done this weekend and it showed Pus cells 8-10. I have mo signs of urine infection but I was wondering why there are still Pus cells in my urine. Can it be dangerous for the baby?

Hi dilhara
Sometimes,UTI is there without any symptoms,
but,its very dangerous to your pregnancy,
it may cause preterm labour pains & even preterm delivery.
So,take lots of fluid & consult your gynaecologist regularly
Take care
