Urine culture ? : If those are the only findings then these items are not relevant. These are cellular findings when the urine is examined under a microscope. If abnormalities are seen then urine may be sent for a culture to determine if there is an infection or not.

You're fine: The epithelial cells are from vaginal contamination. It's basically impossible to avoid this. Best wishes.

Sounds normal.: Normal urine may contain a few skin cells and white blood cells. As long as you have no symptoms this seems normal.
