Question: Recently i have a new sex partner. And now i suspect that i have UTI
Symptoms include burning sensation while peeing (especially when u finish) and mild discomfort during the day. And constantly have to rush to urinate.
I dont think its STD.
Ive been taking trimethopnime and sulfamethoxazole 150mg:800mg for three days now and havent had sex . The symptoms are a little better but not too much. Should i try another antibiotic/other ?

Brief Answer:
Precautions advised

Detailed Answer:
Hello mam, thanks for trusting health care magic.
It looks like urine infection only as typically you have pain on the finishing end of the urination.
Take a note of the following -
- keep taking the antibiotic for another 4 days
- take syrup alkasip or citralka 4 teaspoons in a glass of water for 3 times a day
- drink a lot of water and cranberry juice if possible.
- wear a cotton based underwear and change it daily
- wash perineal region with vWash liquid after bath
- avoid sex or use condom while having sex
In case it persists then visit your gynecologist for examination.
All the best.

Brief Answer:
Urine culture and change of antibiotic advised

Detailed Answer:
Yes dear in case you still have the symptoms then get a urine culture done as first thing in morning and then start tablet Nitrofurantoin 100 mg twice a day for 5 days and see the response.
Keep your water intake high as advised before and upload the result of urine culture report so that the causative agent can be seen.
Take care

I just took a Sulfamethoxazole/MP DS Tablet and within 15-20 minutes I started having what normally feels like gas pains, except they are all through my rib cage, in my left shoulder and part of the left upper arm. The right arm aches, I ache (like a gas feeling) under my left breast and across the area below the breast area, but above the stomach. The pain is radiating into the lower back and from the back of the neck and up into the head. I took Alka Seltzer, in case it was gas, but it did not help. I took a Nitro under my tongue and it did not help.

I ve been taking Tri-Sprintec for over four years and just recently was prescribed sulfamethoxazole for a possible uti. I had unprotected sex and my boyfriend is worried. Im on the last week of pills (two days left). Does this antibiotic significantly interfere with the birth control pills? Should I go purchase Plan B?

Hello. I have been treated for chronic prostatitis with sulfamethoxazole. Although the symptoms seem to be diminishing and I feel much better, there is the purple area just inside of my pee hole. It kind of looks like a vein leading to the opening. At the opening there is what seems to be xcess skin being pushed up from the purplish area creating almost like a fat lip on the one side of the hole. Is this a symptom of prostatitis?

Can I use clarithromycin for a uti

doctor1 MD

My son has abdominal swelling....almost looks like a pregnant woman and has just turned one year old. I'm scaring myself reading all the things it could be such as sickle cell disease and appendicitis. He really hasn't had a huge loss of appetite or constipation, but has had lose stool. He has been fussy and a lot more irritable then usual and as soon as he has a bowel movement hes back to normal for awhile. He also has been sick and ended up with impetigo and the dr prescribed him sulfamethoxazole and prednisolone and he has been taking those since friday so I'm worried that may be a side effect of those medications. My question is should I worry and take him to the ER or just keep an eye on him?
