Hi,
Thanks for the query.
The possible causes for your problem are :
- Sometimes altered colored urine can be seen in pregnancy.
Usually in case of preeclamsia, there will be passage of albumin in the urine, that can lead to whitish appearance of urine.
-Contamination of the sample.
- Chyluria due to other causes like lymphatic problems, parasitic infestation etc.

- Sometimes vaginal discharge can be interpreted as white colored urine.
So, consult gynecologist once and get examined.
Go for investigations like urine microscopy, serum proteins, blood pressure estimation etc .
Possibly with this workup the cause for your problem can be identified and treated.
Take care.
