Contaminated urine: If the urine was collected using good cleaning prior to urination, then it is not normal. If a woman does not use a good clean catch technique then the urine can be contaminated from surrounding secretions. There being more epithelial cells than blood cells indicates that this was most likely a contaminated urine specimen. The urine test should be repeated using good clean catch technique. ...Read more

I am 21 female. Urine test shows specific gravity- 1010 & Epithelial cells- 3-5/hpf. Is this normal?

I am 21 female. Urine test shows specific gravity- 1010 & Epithelial cells- 3-5/hpf.
Is this normal?

Normal: Your urine is fairly dilute with a SG of 1.010. Epthelial cells are quite normal in a female. These came from your vagina. There would likely be less or no epithelial cells if your labia were widely separated & you caught a mid-stream specimen. No RBCS, WBCs or bacteria is excellent. Good Luck, no cause for any concern ...Read more

Microscopic Hematuri: I am assuming it is a clean catch specimen. The AUA defines microscopic hematuria as >= 3 RBC's per hpf in 2 of 3 correctly collected specimens. A second clean catch specimen should be obtained 48hrs after any rigorous exercise, sexual activity, menstruation, or trauma, along with a history and PE to rule out illnesses of the urinary tract. ...Read more

I'm week 5 pregnant. I did urine test and rbcs are 1-2/h.P.F , pus cells 2-3/h.P.F , and some epithelial cells are found in urine! is that normal?

Yes: These results are entirely within normal limits, even for a non-pregnant woman. Although RBC's amd WBC's (pus cells) are not considered a normal constituent of urine, they frequently appear in small quantities, and may result from slightly "spillage" into the kidney, or may be simply contaminants washed into the urine during the sampling process. Don't worry about it. ...Read more
