Pregnant with urinary symptoms. What does heavy mixed growth mean?

Hello, I am currently 28wks pregnant with urinary symptoms . I forwarded a urine sample not feeling 100% with bladder and the results returned showed heavy mixed growth, pus and blood cells. This is my 4th pregnancy i have never suffered urinary frequency as much . I have no dysuria and occassionally am dribbling despite emptying my bladder minutes earlier. Should they treat me for a uti as a precaution and rpt sample

Thanks for posting your query.
In pregnancy asymptomatic urinary tract infection can occur.
However if you are doubtful that your sample has been contaminated, get it repeated.
If again mixed growth means multiple bacterial growth is seen, it should be completely eradicated; otherwise it can lead to preterm labour pains or delivery.
I hope your query has been answered.
Take care.
