It means you have an infection in your urine. Don't worry they are very common, especially when you've just had a baby. Your GP has given you the right treatment and the antibiotics should clear it up.

Ok thanks

Yup. Infection. Did gp send a sample off for culture? Should really have done this. If not, don't panic as the abx you are on may clear it. But if you still have symptoms after finishing the course, or they come back go to gp again and insist that this time they do send a sample off.

Lucocites are white blood cells BTW. These fight infection, so if your urine contains them, you have an infection.

Yep it's a water infection, antibiotics should do the trick. Congratulations on the your new babythanks
