Anyone had to give a urine sample before? I'm terrified
« on: May 06, 2014, 05:20:22 PM »
I've had a stitch-like pain on and off for a couple of weeks and went to the doctor today. He said everything seemed fine and said it wasn't my appendix or anything.

But I should do a urine sample to check for any possible infections just in case

I also need to drink more water. I've never had one though and the wait will be horrible

I know how easy it is to stress yourself out waiting for test results.  I've been there so many times.  Even if you do have a urinary tract infection they are really easy to cure with antibiotics.

Any time I had to give a urine sample they told me RIGHT there.  There was no waiting (well, waiting from the time I went into the cup to the time they walked into the back to stick the dip stick in, but that's it - a matter of 2 minutes, tops.)

Yeah, I've never been scheduled to take a urine test before. Strange!

In the scheme of things it doesn't matter much.~

I suppose it Depends on what test they do - maybe not all can be done by simply dipping a strip into the urine.

My regular doctor sends mine off to a lab too.  Usually I hear back in two or three days.  UTIs aren't a huge deal - god knows I've had enough of them to know :P  They'll give you antibiotics and it'll be fine.
