Anyone who's had a UTI please read

I've had a bad UTI but I didn't realize my doctor didn't screen for it every urine sample so I'm not totally sure how long I've actually had it. I had discomfort during urination but then it just ended up being severe back/kidney pain. So I finally talked to my doctor about it and I'm now on antibiotics for a bad UTI. She told me the pain and infection could last anywhere from 1-3 weeks. I was just wondering if other symptoms I'm having are UTI related. Extreme burning after sex, uncomfortable during sex and itching. Can a UTI cause mild itching? My urine is no longer dark but still burns. Are any of these other things normal with UTI or should I call my doctor?

Re: Anyone who's had a UTI please read

I had a UTI about a month and a half ago...I am now almost 36 weeks. I thought I had a UTI but also thought for sure that I had a yeast infection or bacterial infection as well. They checked and I did in fact have a UTI but NO yeast or bacterial infection. The nurse practicioner said that UTI's can have similar symptoms to a yeast or bacterial infection, so I guess it's true. I never knew that. However, even though the UTI was gone within a few days of starting the antibiotics, or at least that burning feeling when using the bathroom, I still have the itching off and on. But they are sure there is no infection. Who knows? I hope you feel better soon, I know it's no fun at all.
