white blood cells in urine

When I got my most recent checkup, everything was fine with my blood work but the urine test showed an increased number of white blood cells. I went back for 2 more urine tests and they were the same. The doc asked if I had any symptoms of a bladder infection.... but I haven't had any symptoms. I do urinate a lot but I always have. The doc said white blood cells in the urine is usually a sign of infection. If it's not a UTI... what else could it be?

Re: white blood cells in urine

It COULD possibly be a cyst, have you had any pain?
I was having lower left abdominal pain and it showed in my urine white blood cells, but I didnt have a UTI I had a 6cm cyst on my ovary.

Re: white blood cells in urine

No, I haven't had any pain... but my period did skip 2 months... and it finally came back this week. Hmmm...they say cysts can cause irregular periods... but up until 2 months ago, my period was always regular... it could even be fibroids or endometriosis... or all of the above. Well, I have an obgyn appointment next week... so I guess I will find out soon.

Thanks for replying to my post!
