Had urine culture three weeks ago showed no growth had another one last week it showed yeast infection Why do both show high levels of WBC ?

Leukocytes in urine: WBCs are present in response to almost any form of inflammation. It sounds as if you have a UTI if the urine was collected by a clean midstream catch. If not, the yeast may have present in the urine through contamination from the vaginal secretions and if you have Candida vulvovaginitis that is probably the explanation. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I have no signs of a yeast infection but my urine smells like yeast. Is it because of the valacyclovir and camrese?

Maybe : Medications can often cause the urine to have a slightly different odor. Unless you are having urinary tract infection symptoms then a temporary change in urine odor is not likely to be important. ...Read more

Can a yeast infection in men effect your urine & only passing a tiny bit?

Yeast is unlikely: Symptoms like this almost never are due to yeast. It sounds like you have a prostate problem, or maybe a bacterial urinary tract infection. Conceivably an STD like gonorrhea, chlamydia, or nongonococcal urethritis (NGU), but these are relatively uncommon at your age. My bet is on prostatitis. See your doctor or urologist; or start with one of UK's excellent NHS GUM clinics. ...Read more

Once every several days my urine is a little cloudy. I don't have simptoms of UTI or yeast infection.

Once every several days my urine is a little cloudy.  I don't have simptoms of UTI or yeast infection.

Young people have: small amounts of protein that can look like white strands in the urine, often making it look cloudy. Asymptomatic microproteinuria is usually harmless and transient in young growing adults, but older adults should not have proteinuria. If you have no symptoms, I would not be too preoccupied with your urine, unless you see blood or pink tinge, or if you have itching/ pain on urination etc. ...Read more

I had a trace of protein in my urine, but i also have a yeast infection. Can a yeast infection cause this trace of protein?

Yes and no: If the urine also showed epithelial cells and white blood cells, then it is contaminated and the protein could be from that. If it is a clean, properly collected urine specimen then a vaginal yeast infection would not cause a change in the urine protein. Get it rechecked after you clear up the infection. ...Read more
