UTI no symptoms, please help.
« on: December 28, 2013, 12:11:50 PM »
Hello,

I went to the GYN last week for a yearly exam. I was told I had WBC's in my urine, and since I didn't have symptoms of a UTI, they were gonna send the urine to the lab to be sure. Yesterday I get a call that it did come back positive for a UTI and I have to start 7 days of antibiotics.

I have to go back to the doctor next week to recheck my urine and see if the antibiotics worked. Also, she said my blood WBC was high also, and this really scared me. I have no symptoms of a UTI at all.

My stomach is in knots worried about what else can be wrong. Can anyone help me please?

I've had WBCs in my urine without any UTI symptoms as well. I was shocked to find out that I had a UTI.

I took the antibiotics, and everything cleared up just fine, and I haven't had any other issues!

Thanks for the reply. So they re-checked your urine after you finished the antibiotics? I just got worried about the elevated WBC on my blood test as well. Ugh, it sucks waiting and wondering if I have something worse than a UTI.

Anyone else have experience?

Yes. I've had it checked a few times since then, actually. All clear, all normal. Not a single WBC.
