Possible infection: Typically when females provide a urine sample even when they clean themselves carefully, some bacteria from the skin will fall into cup and cause the test to show moderate bacteria. In this case, usually a culture is done to rule out infection. This takes a few days. In medicine a fever is anything 100.4 deg or higher, if there is a prolonged temp in this range, there is concern for infection
