    Hi. I am needing to know if this is normal for my current UTI??

    Ok so tuesday I awoke with a UTI...prob from having intercourse twice sunday and then drinking and eating sugars the next day...so i tried to get rid of the infection myself but couldnt so the following sunday I went to an Urgent care. Sure enough it was a UTI...a really bad one!! He gave me bactrim for 10 days...so today is thursday the fifth day of taking the med...just took the tenth pill. I still have a slight burn, but it has improved greatly from what it was. I have taken bactrim before for a uti and it felt almost all the way better after the second or third pill and I always make sure to finish the course completely....is it ok that i still have slight uti symptoms even after the 10th pill?? Like I said nothing is getting worse but many are saying you should feel all the way better after like the third or 4th day but its now the 5th day. Any advice?

    Hello, sorry to hear about your uti. It is possible since you said that it was a bad infection that you may need either 1) finish your meds completely, before you feel better 2) you need another round of antibiotics or 3) stronger antibiotics. Also a word of caution, antibiotics take care of infections but sometimes in women can cause yeast infection, so in case you find yourself having such symptoms you will know why :/ Hope uti clears up soon
