Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic
I think you have got urine microscopy test done showing pus cells. It suggests you have urinary tract infection. Get urine culture done. Urinary tract infection is quite common in females. You need to have antibiotics to clear infection. Drink plenty of water. Take care.

Recently my urine was tested with a dipstick and then sent for urinalysis twice. My doctor said that there was a plus 1 red blood cell in my urine. The first test was done during my period therefore she asked to repeat it. The second test was done 3 days before my next period. I am 33 and I had a cesearean section 10 months ago. Could the surgery have cause damage? How worried should I be about these results?
