If : If a patient continued to have frequent urination, or had burning with urination, flank pain, fever, or vomiting, then they may have a uti. Frequent urination can be caused by pressure on the uterus from pregnancy, so if there is suspicion, even if there was a negative pregnancy test, then repeating a test would be reasonable. Rarely, elevated blood sugar can cause increased urination, so if it continued or the patient had markedly increased thirst or dehydration, then the blood sugar should be checked; again that would be very rare.
