I was treated for UTI a week ago and was prescribed antibiotics. I have completed the medication and I still have a uti. What should I do. ?
New treatment: When someone still has the same kinds of UTI sx (fever, burning, frequency, etc) after treatment, then they probably should go back to the doctor.

Treatment failure: Symptoms of an illness that will respond to a particular antibiotic usually start to improve within 3-4 days if the appropriate antibiotic was prescribed, and they were taken as directed. Relapse or persistence of symptoms is generally regarded as a treatment failure or inaccuracy of the original diagnosis (i.e. viral not bacterial). Decongestants with/without antihistamines may help congestion. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Recurrent yeast: If symptoms are the same as last time, it should be OK to re-treat yourself with an over-the-counter yeast medication like miconazole, terconazole, etc (a pharmacist can advise you). But if it recurs again, you'll need medical evaluation for things that predispose to yeast, especially diabetes. Antibiotics can trigger yeast as well. And other infections (like STDs) can mimic yeast symptoms. ...Read more
Gonorrhea and chlamydia came back, I am now wondering if the antibiotic treatments have failed or if I have something else?
Reinfection: The most common reason an std returns is because someone re-infected you. Your same partner or a new partner. If you have gonorrhea and chlamydia, all of your partner(s) needs to complete antibiotics too. There are some cases of antibiotic resistant gonorrhea, but those aren't widespread yet. Make sure that on your retreatment, both you and your partner(s) complete entire antibiotic therapy! ...Read more

I have a recurring uti. Been treated twice in the past month but i believe I have it again. Should i see a urologist and request driver medication?
More info: I would get a culture if no culture has been done. The bacteria may have developed some resistance to the antibiotic. If it isn't a resistance issue, seeing a urologist may not be a bad idea since structural problems in the urinary tract increase risk of UTI and if you frequently get it, better to get checked. I am not sure what you mean by driver medication. ...Read more
