Check with doc first: The bacteria that cause UTI can be resistant to many antibiotics. However, it would be unusual for a UTI to resist both cephalexin (Keflex) and ciprofloxacin. But it could happen, so maybe UTI, maybe not. A vaginal yeast infection triggered by the antibiotics could cause UTI-like symptoms. Don't stop treatment yet, but speak with the doctor who prescribed it about next steps. Good luck.
