is urine sterile??
it just keep on bugging up in my mind whenever i pee...
Yes, it is sterile in the bladder, barring infection. Our bladders are a sterile environment. When the urine comes out it probably isn't sterile anymore because of bacteria at the entrance to the urethra and on our skin, thats why you have to use that cloth at the Dr.'s office to get a "clean catch" specimen. It is probably still not sterile
, to be sterile is a complete absence of pathogens and it only takes one to defeat that!
