Hello Nes and welcome.

Thank you for your query.

Your prime concern is with the clue cells and pus cells.

Pus cells are present even in a normal urine examination, as the female external genitalia (organ), has bacteria on top of it all the time, and can easily be present in the test report as well.

Clue cells are not always present in a normal examination, and are usually found in an infection called 'bacterial vaginosis'.

Bacterial vaginosis is the most common vaginal infection, seen in woman.

Although your test could indicate the presence of an infection, I would request you to discuss the report with your obstetrician/gynecologist or a urologist, who could help confirm the diagnosis and treat you for the same.

Do not worry, as infections during pregnancy are common, and can be easily dealt with. Always remember to keep your obstetrician/gynecologist informed at all times, about all developments.

Wishing you a safe and healthy delivery and a beautiful baby.

Best of luck.
