I am on antibiotic. There were white blood cells in the urine sample.

Thank you for the input.

I am very sorry for your symptoms.
Mixed flora in urine culture means that more than one organism were found in the culture.
It usually considered as contaminated.
But as there is the white blood cells in the urine and you have frequency of urination, it is true infection.
Antibiotic will cure the infection.

You should not worry.
I hope this information will be helpful.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
