5 month old son had urinary tract infection without fever&normal us, vcug is recommended its invasive i d prefer repeat urine tests what should I do?

Do the VCUG.: He should have the vcug. It is very important to find out if there is reflux of urine backwards, up toward the kidney, which will predispose to more infections. The ultrasound looks at the size and structure of the kidneys and urinary tract, but not reflux. You can not tell this from repeat urine tests either. Repeated infections can cause damage to the kidneys. ...Read more

I would definitely repeat the test (it is inexpensive) to make sure it was a "clean" catch, but if it is still abnormal, your provider will want to send a sample for culture to determine the proper antibiotic treatment. ...Read more

Genital infection?: Women often have elevated WBC in urine because of contamination of the sample with genital fluids. WBC are common in vaginal fluids, for example, often (but not always) because of infections like yeast and STDs. Also, symptoms of yeast and STDs often are similar to UTI.
