It can effect a dip stick test because it discolors your urine but it should effect a culture.

Azo won't have any affect on the urine test results; it only treats the symptoms of the infection thus leaving the amount of bacteria in your system to be unaltered. The same is true for any bladder soothers you may take for UTI pain.
