Avatar f tn There are many things that can cause red blood cells and white blood cells to show up in the urine. These cells may be there because of infection but also may be evidence of an inflammatory condition that is not infectious such as “painful bladder syndrome/interstitial cystitis”. The possibility of a stone in the kidney, ureter, or bladder should be considered as should the possibility of a neoplasm (precancerous or a cancer).
Avatar n tn I have had many white blood cells in my urine for about the past 7 months, if not longer. My doctor is starting to get concerened. They checked for bladder infection and kidney infection, they have done an ultrasound and everything. The only thing they found in the ultrasound was a cyst on me ovarie. I am being sent to a urologist next week. I am wondering what this could be?
Avatar n tn I was told my urine test showed a higher than normal white blood cell count. What does this mean?
Avatar m tn Welcome to our Forum. The presence of white blood cells (WBCs) and red blood cells (RBCs) in the urine can be due to many, many different causes. These causes can include STDs, urinary tract infection and other systemic infections. They can also be there from many things other than infection. In fact, a common cause of the presence of cells in the urine is vigorous exercise and many runners have this finding. If this is a concern, you doctor will do tests.
Avatar m tn Hello, White blood cells when present in urine are indicative of urinary tract infection. For this I would suggest you to get urine for culture examination done since a course of antibiotics is needed. Also drink plenty of fluids and water and citric juices like cranberry juice. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar m tn However, they found a moderate to high amount of white blood cells. I took a blood test for STDs (which I'm 99% positive it'll come out negative). When they did the test, my doctor said there seems to be a weird kind of discharge that she can't pinpoint. It's thin and yet clumpy. She also said that it seems my cervix and vagina is inflammed. What could be going on here? I know that white blood cells fight infection, but what could be happening here? Any answers would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn I recently thought that I had a UTI and read up on the possibility of Ghonoria and Clamydia, and immediately went to the doctor for testing. My urine showed no white blood cells and the doctor said it was unlikely that I had and STD. A couple days later my labs came back and I did in fact have Clamydia, so I got my medicine from the Pharmacy. The doctor that called me on the phone , a different doctor than I had seen told me when I asked , that It was unlikely that I had Herpes as well.
Avatar n tn He was given a urine test by another doctor - the results came back with a high amount of white blood cells and blood in his urine however, they cannot detect an infection. They have told me that this causes them concern so he has now been transfered to the Hospital for further tests. What my question is, is what could be causing this? If they are concerned, what could it be???

Avatar n tn I have about the same problem as some of you the lower back pain that goes into my right side alot of white blood cells and red cells in the unrine,constipation, blood in stool, belching. The doctor did blood test everything came out good and than he did an ultrasound that came back good he gave me cipro and pain meds did not work so he gave me different ones not working I'm always tired I sleep alot.
Avatar n tn I am 31 weeks as well, congratulations on the baby! The blood in your urine definitely indicates a kidney infection. There are probably more kidney stones growing too. Have your doctor do an ultrasound so you can see what's going on and check for more stones. I would also ask if there is any other safe meds you can take for the kidney infection since this one doesn't seem to be working. Contact the doctor immediately if you feel pain in the lower left side of your back.
Avatar f tn Had no infection in my wee sent off for blood test high white blood cells. Not preeclampsia either. My doctor gave me antibiotics as he said i could be starting to have an infection or my body has just fought one off! But he said sometimes in pregnancy they are just higher. Could just be a water infection if you have they symptoms. Nothingto wworry about.
Avatar n tn I was just wondering what can cause red and white blood cells to show up in a urine test. We ruled out a UTI and the antibiotics didn't work either. They didn't look into it any further, and I didn't know if there was something that they should be looking for.
Avatar f tn Today, after 2 weeks, I went to a clinic here in SF, and they took a sample of my urine, where they looked for white cells. He said that he that no white cells were present in my urine. So I was not treated for STDs, however my urine was sent to be tested for gonorrhea and Chlamydia. Today I also noticed, a little white discharge when going to urinate. This happend a few hours after they told me there were no white cells present in my urine.
Avatar m tn He wants to repeat the urine test and the PSA a month after I complete the norfloxacin. That is in 6 weeks' time. He says if the white blood cells and red blood cells together with the PSA all improve then that's the end of the story. Otherwise he wants a biospy of the prostate. Intriguingly he NEVER suggested a cystoscopy. He did say I should have a MRI of the prostate ASAP, but I wonder what I have to gain having it BEFORE the next urine test (in 6 weeks time). What do you think?
Avatar n tn In addition to finding red blood cells, the doctor may find white blood cells. White blood cells help your body fight infection. When white blood cells are in the urine, it may mean a urinary tract infection. Extra protein in the urine may also mean your kidneys are not working as well as they should. Do a search on it and see what that means.. Sounds like a bladder infection.. shouldnt prevent you from conceiving.. just take your time and get better!!
Avatar m tn for three days i have pain during urination , i went to doctorhe took urine test and he told me i have bacteria and high white blood cells, he gave me antibiotics if i will still have painfor 5 days i have to go back for STD test. i am very afraid whaat this could be. Please help me.
Avatar f tn Last January (2017) I came down sick and had to go to the hospital, where they ran various tests on me. The urine sample came back negative for white blood cells, If I already had Chlamydia at that point wouldn't white blood cells show up in my urine?
Avatar f tn I was then prescribed another anitbiotic and sent for a urine culture. The culture determined that I had white and red blood cells in my urine but no growth of bacteria fro 24-48 hours. I then went to my OBGYN to have a pap smear and to be tested for chlamydia and gonnorhea. Everything was fine. Things seem to be ok for a while. Currently, I have a new boyfriend who has had a vascetomy. Well, last week, we had unprotected sex (lots of it and i know stupid) and he came inside of me.
Avatar n tn On my return (my last visit to date) I was informed that white blood cells where found in my urine but no infection. He hasn't explained what he thinks this could suggest, but has made me an appointment with urology. I also have not been told was preceedure I will undergo! I feel very in the dark. My urology appointment is today! Other things that you may need to know is I suffer from Urtecaria, which i take antihistamines for daily.
