Periurethral flora

So I just got my lab tests back and I don't really know what "periurethral flora" is and I can't find any information on it anywhere...Can someone tell me what this means?

Hi,
How are you? Natural defense of the urinary tract includes the urethral (area including the urethra) and periurethral (area surrounding the urethra) region. Normal flora in these regions usually contain lactobacilli,
coagulase negative staph, corynebacterium and streptococci that form barriers against colonization of harmful bacteria. It is best that you discuss the result of your test with your doctor for proper evaluation. Hope this helps. Take care and best regards.
