Contaminated sample?: This could be an infection, including the possibility of an STD. However, it could have been a contaminated specimen if not a careful midstream collection, or if you are uncircumcised and did not retract your foreskin when you voided for the sample. Contact the doctor who ordered the test and discuss repeat urinalysis and/or other tests, e.g. gonorrhea and chlamydia if at risk for STD. Good luck!
