I have horrible burning when I urinate. I have had two UTI tests done and both come back negative for bacteria. I know it can't be an STD. ?

Keep working w/ doc: Some UTIs are missed by standard culture tests. Herpes can cause this even in people who seem to be at low risk for STD. Or another STD like gonorrhea or chlamydia, e.g. if your partner has been at risk without your knowledge. You could have a non-infectious bladder problem, like interstial cystitis. Keep working with your doctor, or see a specialist e.g. urologist. This can be worked out. ...Read more

I tested negative for nitrates and leukocytes on the UTI test. Seems I am free of bacteria. Does this mean I am free of UTI and STD infection?

I tested negative for nitrates and leukocytes on the UTI test.  Seems I am free of bacteria.  Does this mean I am free of UTI and STD infection?

Yes & no: Negative nitrites & leukocytes means that it's very unlikely for you to have a urinary tract infection. We also look under microscope for presence of white blood cells & bacteria as other signs of bladder or kidney infection. However, normal urinalysis doesn't tell us whether you have a sexually transmitted disease/infection or not. You have to ask for specific tests for each infection. ...Read more
