Probably OK. : Ph can normally vary between 5 - 8 and strip will color appropriately. Protein trace usually means nothing, only if color of reagent on strip turns green. Leucocyte esterase reagent on strip is also very sensitive and can be discolored by residual leucocytes (white cells) from a resolved UTI or from normal vaginal epithelial cells in urine. U need urine culture if symptoms persist or return.
