Urine infection during pregnancy

Hello Doctor,

I am 32 weeks pregnant.

My urine routine test report indicates :
Pus cells range of 6-8hpf
Epithelial cells range of 15-20hpf;
RBC 0-1hpf.

During my pregnancy I have taken 3 courses of antibiotics to treat urine infection. Please suggest if I have infection now as per this latest report. My Gynecologist is now suggesting Amikacin injection twice daily for 3 days. Please suggest if this is safe to take this course or you would suggest otherwise. I took the first dose today and fainted for about 5 minutes. Told my Gynecologist , she suggested to continue but said will take precautions this time like drips through some solubles with the medicine. Please suggest if it is safe to continue with this medication.

  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.

    Your report indicates infection, but to know exactly the type of infection you need to get urine culture sensitivity done. Based on that the antibiotic needs to be decided. Till then you should stop Amikacin.

    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to send us a follow-up Query.

    Stay safe and have a healthy pregnancy!
