It's Not All in Your Head, Why Are My Tests Negative?

Many chronic urinary tract infection (UTI) sufferers have had their symptoms dismissed by their GP or urologist on the basis of dipstick tests and mid-stream urine (MSU) cultures. Worryingly, these tests are seriously flawed.

  • Standard mid stream urine (MSU) cultures miss 90% of chronic urinary tract infections

  • Dipstick analysis (leucocyte esterase test) miss at least 60% of chronic urinary tract infections.

Just because your tests doesn’t find evidence of an infection, this is not evidence that you don’t have a UTI.
