Ive had white dead skin looking floaties in my urine for weeks. Alot! I get silent bladder infections too. Could this be a sign of a bladder infection?

May be normal...: Before further use of antibiotics, make sure to get urinalysis (UA) with/without urine culture. If being free of UTI symptoms and having no WBC or RBC in UA, most likely, cloudy urine could be normal in alkaline urine with PH>6.5, resulting from the presence of amorphous phosphate crystals, which commonly seen in vegetarians. Ask Doc for more detail.... ...Read more

I have several bladder infections that I left untreated but ended up going away. I have now been trying to get pregnant for about a year now and even try on the days im ovulating but still nothing.  Could it be because of re occuring bladder infections? I

Not likely.: Unless your infections were associated with an std like chlamydia, you are probably ok. If you are using ovulation kits, be aware that it is usually the day after the test is positive that you ovulate. It may be time to have your partner get a semen analysis and see your gynecologist for an evaluation though since you are hitting that 1 year mark. ...Read more
