Negative Urine Cultures With Infection
Could sti cause blood in urine and be missed in urine culture, which was negative? urine showed infection markers but culture was neg -- worried sti
Hematuria: Blood in the urine is rarely due to STI. It could happen, but the main symptom of STI involving the urinary tract is urethriits, with abnormal discharge and often discomfort on urination, but no blood. However, with "infection markers" (WBC?), it is reasonable to test urine for STI, especially gonorrhea and chlamydia. But most likely it's something else, e.g. passing a stone.

Does ureaplasma urealyticum infection show up on a urine culture or a pcr std urine test? I had two urine cultures and three std urine tests.
Normal bacteria: It's normal to have U. urealyticum in the genital tract. Once in a while it causes nongonococcal urethritis (NGU) in men, but generally harmless both in men and their sex partners. UU doesn't show up on routine tests; testing is rarely needed except in special circumstances. So nothing to worry about, especially if no symptoms. If in doubt, see an STD or infectious diseases expert. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Contaminant: Infection is when pathogens (bacteria for example) invade your tissues. This almost always produces signs which include redness, swelling, warmth and pain.

Chlamydia: There are several means of testing for chlamydia and without knowing what method your doctor used cannot be definitive, but if they used culture (uncommon) proteus mirabilis could interfere. Nucleic acid amplification or hybridazation tests, elisa assays or direct fluorescent antibody testing tests are more common and would not be affected by proteus. ...Read more
Can staphylococcus haemolyticus cause prostatitis?
All major std negative. Urine culture shows staphylococcus haemolyticus. Prostatitis?
Tiny sample of urine is spread on a bacterial growth culture medium, e.G agar & placed in an incubator to grow. Positive urine cultures demonstrate colonies of bacteria which can then be identified. Such colonies can then be recultured in presence of various antibiotics to identify to which the isolated organism is sensitive. ...Read more
