Had UTI. Took some pills. Tested pregnancy, vaginal exam resulted chlamydia. How to cure it?

I am currently abroad and had a UTI which I have had before some time ago, i decided to try treatment with uva ursi since i wasn't sure about how to navigate the german healthcare system. Things seemed ok, I took the pills for 5 days as recommended by the pharmacist, and drank tons of water, avoided coffee and alcohol, but it wasn't until after I stopped the pills that the burning UTI sensation during urination stopped. I continued ingesting lots of fluid, switched to water and cranberry juice, but if I let myself get even slightly less hydrated some of my symptoms would begin to return. I decided to visit a clinic, a bit unsure if I still had an issue I tested my theory by having one beer the night before. I figured if it sent me to a bad place, i would be seeing a doctor the following day so no big deal. Well here's where things get interesting. I drank the beer and had kind of a strange sensation during urination, but not really burning, also I developed with in a couple hours after the beer dull aches in my lower back. By the morning of my doctors appointment the pain had worsened. So at the doctor's I relayed all this information, I guess they tested my urine, they also tested for pregnacy, though i told them it was next to impossible that I was pregnant, then did a vaginal exam and prescribed me antibiotics for chlamydia (azithromycin). There is a language barrier, but i think that I have been misdiagnosed, the possibility of chlamydia is even more impossible than pregnancy for me. In any case I would like a second opinion on this. Another issue is that I am leaving germany in 9 days and I really do not want to fly like this. I am urinating very often, maybe every 20-30 minutes. I know I am drinking alot, but there is a difference in urgency from normal. Ok, hopefully you can point me in the right direction??? Thanks for the help.

Thank for choosing HCM, you have straight said UTI without stating any symptoms, we always ask a patient about their chief complain, elicit the complete medical history, carrying some test then labeled the diagnosis, you could be wrong, it may not be uti, any way i would suggest you to little alkalize your urine by taking sodium citrate 20ml with glass of water thrice in day, if it does not relieved the problem, go for urine culture sensitivity test along with X-ray of KUB, Have nice day
