I have recently changed insurances so I had a physical exam and the doctor said he wanted to send my urine sample to the lab. He told me he would call me with the results the next day but instead I recieved a call from his assistant saying I need to come back since they found something they weren't expecting and that the doctor wanted to discuss it with me. I am very worried about what might be wrong but know that might fiancé recently got a check up and had clymitia. Should I be worried? I figured all they would find would be what my fiancé has since we are sexually active. What is the worst case senario from my urine sample? Is this normal that I have to go back in to
discuss the result? Please help me feel a little more at ease with some knowledge.
It is very common for the doctor to discuss with the patient the results of any test to get to the accurate diagnosis. Sometimes, an incomplete clinical history may prompt a physician to call the patient back to the clinic.
Chlamydial infection produces local symptoms and signs and a urinary test is usually normal and no abnormality is found unless there is an associated urinary tract infection. So, it is very unlikely to find the chlamydial infection of your partner on a urine test of yours.
All doubts can be put to rest only when you see your doctor and discuss this with him. Thank you.
