The chemical examination of my urine sample says positive albumin and the microscopical examination says many sperms, what does this mean?

Get evaluated.: The presence of sperms on microscopic analysis of the urine is not necessarily abnormal, & can occur if you gave your sample after recent ejaculation.

Probably normal: With respect to predicting the presence or absence of a urinary tract infection, dipstick urinalysis is often unreliable especially in women because of contamination of the urine specimen with vaginal cells and bacteria. I would consider your u/a fairly unremarkable unless you have symptoms of a UTI in which case a urine culture should be done. ...Read more
