I just got my urinalysis back and it had 2+ leukocyte estrace and wbc 6-8. What could this mean?

Possibly nothing: Normal urinalysis is leucocyte esterase negative & 0 -2 wbc/hpf. However esterase can be =+ve from smegma or artifact. Often difficult to get true clean catch urine sample in women. Unlikely UTI as UA was nitrite -ve. Also do not report proteinuria, thus kidney disease v unlikely. U can always repeat UA. Separate labia minora, clean with soap towelette, keeping labia open get mid-stream specimen
