Had a UTI last month went away. Urine culture today shows negative. Still have urgency and frequency for over a month and couple weeks will it go away?

Urgency & frequency: Let's clear up a common misunderstanding. Unless you're pregnant, there's no need to get a urine culture after finishing a course of antibiotics because we're not going to treat asymptomatic bacteriuria in adults, certainly, not in those who have an indwelling catheter.

What should I do if the urgency to urinate is still present after starting antibiotics for uti?

What should I do if the urgency to urinate is still present after starting antibiotics for uti?

Drinking plenty of fluid dilutes this and eases up the symptom. Another reason is the antibiotic may only be partially effective and you may still have residual infection. If it has already been 3 days and you're still having symptoms despite hydration, reconsult doc. ...Read more
