Hi and thanks for the questions,
when many germs are isolated from a urine culture, the possible explanation is usually contamination of the sample during collected and transportation of the sample. However, in this case, there is no major problem since the germs isolated are susceptible to the common penicillin antibiotics.
However, it is important to be compliant to the treatment throughout the treatment duration, drink much water, and a control urine culture a week or two after completion of your drugs could be a very good idea to ascertain complete cure. Avoiding unprotected sex during this period is generally advised.
Thanks as I pray this helps,
Best regards,
Luchuo, MD.
