    I did a urine sample a couple of weeks ago for the midwife which she checked using the sticks and said it looked ok - was just a routine sample. She sent the sample off with my booking bloods and I just got a letter in the post saying I need to repeat my sample as enterococcus faecalis is present in my sample... i have looked it up on the web and it usually means your urine is contaminated with faecal contaminants - but i never wipe the wrong way. I am really confused as to why its there, I have no infection or cystitis symptoms or discharge. Will I need treatment?
    :cry:

    hey huns me again lol iv done some reading on web for u and there are other ways of Enterococcus faecalis entering inside u...right maybe tmi but it has to be sais as u need help... when u and OH :sex: it possible that his penis could have first totched ur bum :blush: b4 entering inside u picking up the bacteria then transfering into u, also the same thing but with OH's hands and wiping the wrong way which u have already said u dnt do.
    it seems to be simply treated huns with anti-biotics BUT this was not in pregnancy info so ur doc will know whats best if still found in r urine but like i say dnt panic hunny its not serious xxxxx
