Bugs came back: Ask your doctor to try to do a culture and sensitivity study since may have a uncommon bacteria or one resistant to antibiotics. Also consider if there is a reason for you to have the UTI. Hygiene, mechanical, sex factors, etc. Work with a health care professional and you should be fine.
