For 4 months i have uti and im taking lots of antibiotics all doesnt work. I had a bit if yellow discharge and i pee more than 10x a day.What can i do?
Probably not a UTI: There are many causes of urinary pain and frequent urination. A common cause is bacterial infection (UTI) but when antibiotics do not improve symptoms, you either have an antibiotic-resistant infection (would be shown on urine culture) or the cause is simply not a bacteria. It's too involved to describe here, but try looking up "Bladder pain syndrome," to see if it describes what you are feeling ...Read more
Will this antibiotic work for my UTI even though i was already on it once and it didn't work? I am 9 weeks pregnant and I have a uti. I was put on nitrofurantoin mono/mac 100mg twice a day for 7 days. I felt better for a few days, but the infection return
Be : Be confident that your doctor is doing the right thing. The urine culture that was done shows which antibiotics will work and which will not against the bacteria that is causing the infection. If you were put on Nitrofurantoin again then I am sure the culture showed that the bacteria was sensitive to it. Recurrent uti's are very common in pregnancy, and the fact that you took the antibiotic before does not mean it will not work this time. If you need more reassurance or explanation don't hesitate to contact your doctor. Take care. ...Read more

Many such infections do not respond to the usual antibiotics used for UTI. See a doctor or clinic, preferably one who understands genital infections. Good luck. ...Read more

Had uti, on 3 antibiotics. Now have bad upper left and middle stomach pain. Xrays and blood work fine, what would be causing the pain? No diarrhea
I have been on antibiotic for 1 1/2 days for severe uti. How long does it take for antibiotics to work?
Within a day: Great question. Since uti's are painful, effective therapy can alleviate this symptom within a day. However, other symptoms, depending on the severity of infection, may take up to a week (fever, malaise) or so to abate (eg.Flank pain).If symptoms smolder, inform your prescriber immedately- antibiotics may need to be adjusted. Hopefully, a urine culture was intially done to guide antibiotic choice. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
