In brief: Many possibilities

1) bacteria causing your UTI may be resistant to your antibiotic.
2) UTI will never clear if you have an infected bladder or kidney stone, stone would need 2b removed before UTI will clear up. 3) urinary tract does not empty completely from retention, urinary reflux, bladder diverticulum etc. 4) area of chronic pyelonehritis or infection in kidney calyx which antibiotics can not reach.
