In brief: Urine dip help

You report you took abx 1 month ago and did a urine dip that was trace positive for leukocytes.
Of importance -- did you have any sxs of UTI at either of these times? Is urine dip +ve for leuk esterase or leukocytes? Any other cells? If + leukocytes and other cells and sxs, would get C&S and treat with appropriate abx. If just trace leuk est and no other cells or sxs, would follow and consult GYN.
