Please depend on urine pus cells to conclude infection. In your case pus cell count in urine don't indicate anything. You may have to do culture test to conclude. You may also unnecessarily take medications. There is no hard and fast rule for water volume. One way to calculate is to measure urine. You must produce about 1200 to 1500 ml in 24 hours. Measure urine once in 15 days. If you send me your medications. I can help.

Uti is not the cause for not concieving but some uterine problems may lead to pressure on utinary bladder leading to reccurent urinary problems. Please ultrasound whole abdomen and pelvis for evaluation of both kidneys ureter urinary bladder uterus for any fibroids etc. You have mentioned urine routine report, get urine culture and sensitivity. Later cystoscopy or ct scan may be required for evaluation of urinary bladder depending on usg report. Continue to have plenty of fluids. Iv antibiotics are more effective in controlling any infection and may be considered depending on urine culture sensitivity report.

Yes you can remove kidney stones with very effective homoeopathic medicines. If the kidney stones are less than 5 mm in size then it will take a maximum of 1 month to remove and if more than 5 mm then some more time and in all cases to a maximum of 75 days. So consult with me with your u/sound reports and all other diagnostic tests that you have undergone till now---------------------

Hello I have recently diagnosed with a gallbladder stone of 8 mm. I asked doctor and he said that surgery is the only option to get it out along with gallbladder. I looked up google and found some links where they say that I can remove stone from gallbladder if I drink olive oil and lemon juice mixture. Now my questions are 1. If I go for surgery will there be any impact in future, since I have stomach problems very commonly. 2. Is it true that I can remove stones by drinking olive oil and lemon juice? If yes are there any harmful or dangerous consequences that can happen. 3. Ever since I got diagnosed I am facing problems with urinating. It is coming very frequently and improperly. Kindly help.

Dear lybrate user gall stones have been well cured through constitutional treatment with no future recurrence ,cutting of an organ is not a cure ,disease is not something hidden in parts but it is a process and has to be reverted back by proper internal medicinal treatment,also olive oil and lemon juice are food items and should be taken in moderation and cannot cure since they are in there crude state ,may be some palliation may result in very huge doses but its not healthy
