Is it possible to find parasites in human urine?

Parasites: Yes, but this depends upon what particular parasite you are referring to and where and how you acquired it. One of the more common is schistosoma hematobium, but not in palo alto. ...Read more

Unlikely: If a pathogen fails to grow it may be bacterial vaginosis. Ask for a Nugent score and consider treatment. All the best. ...Read more

Excessive urination over two months, been on 5 antibiotics, poo has been yellow and very flaky! Could that mean parasites, or be associated with urine?

Stop antibiotics: Almost certainly your abnomral stools and bowel function are due to the antibiotics, not parasites. Urinary infection itself doesn't do this. Best plan is to stay off antibiotics for a few weeks, but discuss with the doctor who prescribed them before making any changes on your own. ...Read more

Seek treatment...: Burning with ejaculation can sometimes be an infection of a sexually transmitted infection such as Chlamydia. The tests for Chlamydia aren't perfect and it can be missed by a urine test. Even if you haven't recently been sexually active, the infection could be from an encounter months ago. You might consider having it treated just to be sure. Best wishes! ...Read more

Very unlikely: Unless you live in a tropical climate the answer is absolutely no your urinalysis suggests kidney inflammation and you need to see a nephrologist and not a urologist. ...Read more

How much urine can the human bladder hold?

Varies; 400-600mL.: There is, of course, a wide range. You can say that the average male bladder capacity is around 400-600ml, or 13-20 fluid ounces. This would be the volume voided after holding urine to the point of severe urgency. If the patient is under anesthesia and the bladder distended with water, the bladder can usually hold even more, around 1000ml or 33 fl. Oz. ...Read more
