In brief: UTI persists

The bacteria causing the UTI may be resistant to the antibiotic used; you might have interstitial cystitis, which involves the bladder wall; or another condition may be causing the symptoms.
See fp again for urine culture & sensitivity & more extensive evaluation to determine other possible causes.

In brief: Antibiotic or IC

You likely did not get the right antibiotic, or you have interstitial cystitis.
Either insist on a urine culture if you are having frequent problems or consider treatment for ic- no caffiene, and acid free diet. www.ichelp.org.
