Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
This is Dr. David
I would not trust the dipsticks. these could be false.
I would trust the lab urinalysis and urine cultures which are more sophisticalted and more accurate testing.
the dip sticks could be defective or could have been stored incorrectly which can affect the reagents on the dip sticks.
if the lab urinalysis shows no infection, then you didn't have a urine infection.
does this make sense?
let me know if you have questions.
have you got your urine retested at the lab
sometimes the lab can make errors as well and switch samples with another persons urine if the urine was not correctly labelled.
I would ask your doctor to send in a second urine sample.
if you have been on antibiotics already, that could have cleared up the infection already.
you could have a bladder stone or bladder diverticulosis causing irritation inside of your bladder
and there would be no bacteria in the urine in this situation.
you might need to see a urologist and get a cystoscopy to look inside of the bladder to check for bladder irritation and inflammation
if you have a lot of bladder pain, you could also have interstitial cystitis of your bladder causing blood and pus and leukocytes and no infection as well.
this can be seen with a cystoscopy into the bladder.
ask to be referred to a urologist for a cystoscopy to look inside of the bladder.
