Pus cells in the urine are nothing but shed cells which fight against organisms. If they are more than a certain number, it indicates infection.

However, I would not be worried about 1-2 pus cells per hpf. Many times, this is normal and does not necessarily indicate infection. If it is more than 6-8/hpf, we need to be worried about a urine infection.

However, now you can safely go ahead with a pregnancy.

Hope this helps. Wishing you good health.
