Urine tests: Often urine tests are contaminated by the bacteria and cells from around the vaginal area which can result in those type of findings. Unless you are having symptoms of a urinary tract infection, it is unlikely that rare bacteria and rare wbcs suggest anything. If in doubt, you can always repeat the urinalysis.
