35 year old female, not pregnant. A urinalysis test showed the presence of WBC (white blood cells) and micro-organisms. I would like to find out what this means, and whether a urinalysis test could reveal STDs such as trichomoniasis?

DOCTOR’S ANSWER (2)

One has to be careful in interpreting the urine analysis. To be accurate it has to be a clean mid-stream urine specimen. This may be difficult to collect at times.

What happens very often is the urine will pick up White blood cells which are part of a vaginal discharge and gives the false impression that it is a urinary tract infection.

A specific test for vaginal infection must be done if there is an associated abnormal vaginal discharge. The Trichomoniasis comes from the vagina rather than from the bladder.

Thank you for asking a question that will help other patients.

White blood cells in the urine can mean many things.

To diagnose trichomoniasis, you might need to run special urine tests like a urine culture or more commonly a swab test inside.
