In brief: Maybe

Several things are possible.
You could have a case of prostatitis. That requires a longer course of antibiotics for a cure. You could be on the wrong antibiotic. Check to see if a urine culture was done and that you are on the proper antibiotic. If you are not emptying your bladder, you could predispose yourself to a bladder infection and it could be more difficult to clear the infection.
