IC: Hello,Although cloudy urine typically indicates UTI, it definitely also occurs with interstitial cystitis. I hope you are under the care of a urologist for your IC. Best wishes to you for coping with IC. Good luck.

Cloudy urine: This usually means that there could be a urinary tract infection present. Although you took Cipro (ciprofloxacin) for 3 days, it is possible the infection is still present
