See doctor: Don't guess at the diagnosis or best treatment. Many or most bacteria causing UTI are resistant to amoxicillin and it won't work. Other conditions can cause the same symptoms, especially genital infectios like STDs (if at risk). And the wrong antibiotic can interfere with proper diagnosis later. See your doctor, or a public health, planned parenthood, or urgent care clinic ASAP. Good luck!
