Bacteruria: Unless they put a tube up into her and catheterized her to get the urine sample, bacteria form the skin and genital area can get into the urine sample.

They may see these bacteria when look at the urine under microscope, but they don't grow in culture in just skin source bacteria. ...Read more

My dr ordered a culture of my urine and a complete semen analysis. Does this check for all bacteria and infections or would a semen culture be helpful also? Or is it not needed with the first two tests?
Depends: You do not state the reason for the study but i'll assume a prostate problem. A regular urine culture checks for common bacteria but not gonorrhea or chlamydia if a std might be an issue.
