But the gold-standards for diagnosing UTI's is looking for leukocytes under the microscope (for immediate dx) & culture.Pyridium (phenazopyridine) does not interfere with those. Pyridium (phenazopyridine) only reduces symptoms & doesn't treat the infection. You might have pyelonephritis, which can be serious. Seek medical attention ASAP! ...Read more

Can UTI cause yellow discharge? I've yellow vaginal discharge on daily basis. Went for c&s test, no pathogen seen. Negative for wet mount.
Probably not UTI: UTI doesn't cause vaginal discharge. Probably you were tested for STDs (gonorrhea, chlamydia) and negative wet mount suggests you were checked for vaginal infections bacterial vaginosis, trichomonas, and yeast. But that test messes almost half of trichomonas infections; ask doc about the newly available DNA test for trich, a far better test. Also ask about cervicitis and maybe retest for STDs. ...Read more
