UTI symptoms persist after antibiotics?
Two thursdays ago (May 1) I went to the doctor because I was have symptoms of a UTI. They took a sample but I couldn't get results til Monday (May 5), so they merely put me on antibiotics (Macrobid) since I was having symptoms. Then on monday the results come back positive for UTI, but they said they gave me the wrong antibiotics for my strain of infection and switched me to 5 days of Cipro. I am finished beside the antibiotics but am still having symptoms. I have plentifully of discomfort/sharp pains in my lower abdomen and it hurts when I hold sex and feels very irritated afterwards. I did not enjoy a lot of burning urination, just posterior pain and lower abdomen pressure and pain/cramping. Is it possible that I still own an infection even after the antibiotics? I am going back to the doctor Tuesday but i'm really worried that this could be something else. I should add that I did miss a full light of day (two doses) of my antibiotics so I ended them a day slow.
Also, when you take antibiotics, your gut health become imbalanced. Take some unsweetened yoghurt for its probiotics.
Refrain from having sex at the moment as it can worsen the problem.
For antibiotics, try to be regular in taking. You also obligation to finish the course of antibiotics prescribed. If you still have not recovered, check with the doctor forthwith.
Also, when you dont take adjectives your meds the infection can come back causing a worse, and harder to pummel strain.
