White blood cells in urine?


I just had a call from my doctors surgery to say my last urine sample shows a high level of white blood cells. They asked me to drop off another urine sample as soon as possible.

I'm really nervous now. What does this mean? Is it harmful for baby? Has anyone else had this?

I suffer from IBS but apart from the usual IBS symptoms I haven't had anything else.

HELP, Im really worried!

There would always be white blood cells in people's urine, if the kidneys didn't flush them out. When you find white blood cells in the urine, you're most likely experiencing a bladder infection and the kidneys let them in to clear the infection. This is important as you can have a UTI without knowing it... it happened to me. I went in because I had awful pain in my back near my kidneys. Dr. told me that I was hours away from a kidney infections, which is another possible cause for white cells in the urine... but I doubt it. Have you ever had stones? That'd be another possibility, but in pregnancy, my money would be on the bladder/UTI. Antibiotics should take care of it. Did they say anything about protein?

Hi,

White blood cells in your urine, normally means you are fighting some sort of uniary tract infection. The white cells are like your bodies defence against the bacteria. I have had this before and all was well after some antibiotics. I wouldn't worry too much, these sorts of things are usually easily fixed x

I would def say its prob a UTI. I had a severe one about a month ago. I was very close to a kidney infection but I got it all taken care of and everything is great!

Thanks for all your comments. I hope it's just a UTI but what if it's a kidney infection? Is that serious or harmful to baby?

Its probabley not a kidney infection. You would have very bad back pain. When I had mine I really thought it was a Kidney infection because my side and back hurt so bad. It just ended up being a servere UTI. All you have to do is take antibotics for a week, and it should go away
