Probably all is OK: "Sediment" in urine, or cloudy urine, almost never indicates a health problem. It is mainly caused by changes in diet and fluid intake that alter vaginal pH (acid-base balance). When pH is higher, phosphate crystals form. To test it, add a few drops of acid (e.g. vinegar) to cloudy urine. Usually it will instantly turn clear. No worries!
