    It isn't unheard of to have specimen contamination at the lab. It happens.

    That said, are you having symptoms of a urinary tract infection or was this done for a routine physical?

    Strep Viridans is a common skin bacteria that can contaminate cathed specimens even using sterile technique.

    gjnl's question is on-point. If your urine was clear and you are't having UTI symptoms, they may just ask for a repeat specimen.

    Everyone is correct. This is a negative UA which suggests you do not have an infection.
