Question: so i got over a UTI about a month ago. Yesterday morning i used the bathroom and felt a little burning sensation when i pee. Last night and this morning i haven’t felt It. Should i still get checked out or leave it alone for now ?

I was just wondering maybe i have another one.

Brief Answer:
No need to check for now

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query.

An occasional burning while urination can happen for other reasons also. So there is no need to check for now.
If you develop recurrent burning or any other significant symptoms like fever etc, then you can check.

Take precautions like
- drink more fluids but avoid sugary juices
- Drink cleaner water
- Too much antiseptic measures should not be employed locally, it may disturb local flora
- Avoid unnecessary antibiotics, antibiotic resistance is a growing problem

Hope it helps.
Let me know if you have more doubts.
