Probably not, but just mention it when you talk to the doc about reaults anyway. Might make any resuts less strong, but they should still be able to detect anything. If you are really concerned though you could call and check.

great it came back fine, do you know if microscopic urinalysis would be able to spot protein?

No idea. If you have any concerns talk to your doc. Did they say anything about needing to have an appointment or do more tests when you got your results?

Edit:
Gave a quick google and a microscopic urinalysis appears to be somebody looking at your sample under a microscope. If protien is visible they should be able to recognise it. Protein would have also shown up with a dip test which is usually done first.
I'd phone your surgery and ask to talk to a doctor about test results especially if you are still getting symptoms. I wouldn't worry though. If nothing showed up it probably means whatever the issue is is passing.

So is pissing really hard into a loo that's had bleach down it.

Don't be so quick to jump to unlikely diagnoses.

Foamy urine can apparently occur from dehydration or fast flow of urine, so could just be that you hadn't had much to drink or had some minor issue which has passed. If they said no action needs to be taken, just keep an eye on it and go back if it gets worse or you notice anything else strange. Sounds like it is nothing to worry about and should go away soon.
It also appears that the reason your sample was less foamy is because most foam is caused by impact with the toilet water and you will have been urinating in an empty container.

Hope that helps. I used this site to get most of the info so you can check it out yourself if you want...

Well, your doctor is best placed to diagnose and treat this. Good luck.
