Thanks for this question.I'm Dr. Phil and I'm ready to helpThis is likely from a urine sample? Yes?Basically they just want to make sure you don't have any bacteria in the urine for when you give birth.This is not a big deal at all. It is very commonThe antibiotics will take care of it and you and the baby will be fine

Also, they should repeat a urine test later in pregnancy to confirm it is eradicated.Please don't forget a positive rating.If you have more question, just reply :)
