Normal: This is a normal urinalysis that has not been collected in an optimal "clean - catch" manner. Note: even with the most careful technique, the results may still be the same, especially for women.

Is there a vaccine for bacterial meningitis?

Dr. Anatoly Belilovsky
Pediatrics 35 years experience
Yes: There are 3 major types of bacterial meningitis after the age of 2 months -- hib, pneumococcal, and meningococcal. There are effective vaccines for the major strains of all of them. E. Coli and group b strep are responsible for most cases of meningitis under 2 months of age; there are no vaccines for them, yet, and treatment of certain maternal infections is key to lessen the risk of such illnes.

A 69-year-old female asked:

My urine test showed nitrates and leucocytes, but the culture was normal. I'm still very uncomfortable. Should I keep taking antibiotics ?

Dr. Shahid Rafique
Internal Medicine 44 years experience
Treat it: Symptoms of urgency, frequency and burning with the urinary nitrites and leukocytes should be treated. Such infections sometimes do not yield a culture because the specimen was taken after you took the antibiotics or specimen was not collected or transported properly. Symptomatic urinary tract infection should be treated.

Unlikely: If all testing negative, i doubt it. You may have simply not ovulated last cycle and that is why you are so late. Are your periods normally regular? Check with your obgyn and good luck.
