First, bacteria is already in your body. For example, you have your own ecoli. Second, bacteria is on your skin. It doesn't really serve a purpose there.

You have been having some off and on bladder discomfort and took a home uti test It said positive for leukocytes but not nitrites- does this mean you have the infection?

First - you need to visit your doctor!!! If the test is positive, which it is, you need treatment, which you can only get from your doctor! What do these results mean? It means there are White blood cells in your urine, enough to make the test positive which is abnormal. As far as a negative nitrite test... If this is positive, it means you have Gram negative bacteria in your urine and need to be treated with antibiotics. If this is negative it can mean a few things - but the 3 big meanings are: 1.) there wasn't enough time fro the bacteria to make nitrites from nitrates OR 2.) you have an infection caused by Gram-positive bacteria (which do not make this test positive) OR 3.) there may be no bacteria. Bottom line - you cannot diagnose yourself, so see a physician. A urinary tract infection can turn VERY serious in a hurry, so you'll need treatment if you have an infection!
