UTI ?'s: Dip stick urinalysis which is positive (white and red cells) plus symptoms of a UTI do not indicate which antibiotic is specific for a given bacterial infection. Get a "clean catch" urinalysis from your gyn physician's office, with a bacterial sensitivity to indicate which antibiotic might be optimal for this particular organism.
