Possible UTI: It means you might have a small bladder infection. If you don't have any symptoms it maybe due to how the sample was collected. You should get a repeat test and a urine culture which is what your doctor probably wants to do.

Specializes in Internal Medicine
Most likely nothing: If you were not on any antibiotics for a urinary tract infection recently, this finding is of no significance.

Yes & No: By sixteen both sexes should show outward signs of puberty. The individual child may or may not have a noticable change in growth rate depending on how closely you follow it. Puberty can come in quickly over a 2-3 year period or slowly over 5-7. Some kids continue to grow into their early twenties long after others have stopped. A review of their growth chart with your doc should provide answers.

Pearly papules: Pearly penile papules are tiny bumps that ring the rim of the penis head. They are typically flesh-colored or a little lighter and have a smooth dome shape. Interestingly, they also seem to form in organized rows, like a string of pearls. There are no harmful effects other than some possible sensitivity that may be uncomfortable during sex or other activities. They are the same.

YES!: My patients usually do great with icsi! if you work with a board certified reproductive endocrinologist, and if the doc has a phenomenal ivf lab and success rate, icsi should result in great success as long as the eggs are good.
