Thanks for your query,
I think Monocef O will work so continue taking it for 5 days if then after your symptoms remains you first go for urine test again to know presence of pus cells.
if you expose more antibiotics there were more chances to become resistant .
If the another test shows presence of pus cells then Amikacin is the best choice.
Urinary tract infection occurs due to infection of pelvic area ,less driking water ,by wearing wet underclothes,sexual act etc,
