Urinalysis

Hey. Sorry to bother ya'll again. I complainied of frequent urination and some visable particles in urine (which I'm no longer seeing!) to my doctor - I suspected this was due to my hightened anxiety over a very brief unprotected encounter way over a year ago, the doctor agreed but suggested a unrine sample be analysied to rule out a UTI as cause of the frequency. My urine was sent away to be cultured and returned with 'no growth' status. No follow up with my doc was required. If I was infected with Chlamydia bacteria, would there have been abnormalities/growth/high WBC in a routine urine culture/analysis? I understand that specific STIs are not tested for in a urinalysis - just wondering if something would have shown up.
Thanks.

No to answer your concerns:

Your WBC would be increased as they are fighting an infection but not necessarily all the time... you indicated this was over a year ago. By now you would be having more symptoms such as discharge pain during urination ect.

I think you are fine but if you doubt this then just get tested.

Hey doc,

I had a real brief unprotected incident, like over a year ago. By brief I mean I entered her, but withdraw straight away, cause I knew it was a bad idea unprotected. Not noticed anything up until a couple of weeks back (after way way too much time spend searching online & reading forums -Ive a paranoia going on that i can feel a slight discomfort sometimes after i pee, just at the tip of my penis - I'm also needing to pee all the time - like every hour or 1.5 hrs. I'm quite sure this is just anxiety taking over although can't get the incident of un[rotected sex outta my head.

Also recently I've taken to examining my urine and have noticed some tiny white particles, is this normal? I'm going to get screened for all STDs in the next few weeks.

Feeling anxious over all this. My freqency re: urinating does not wake me at night and seems to increase during the day - almost the more I think about it. I have had no discharge that I am aware of.

Thanks doc.  Reported Report this Spam

Not the Dr's site but I can try to help.
You are over reacting to the situation. It was over a year ago and if it really was in then out in as quick as it takes to write it then you have no worries.  Reported Report this Spam

thanks for your response Vance2335. That is reassuring. Can anyone else shed light on the particles in my urine, I've read in various places that it can just be skin cells or maybe even kidney stones - I drink and smoke heavily could this be a factor too? Man, I'm beatng myself up bad over this all.  Reported Report this Spam

No one here is going to have enough knowledge to analyze your urine.
