Hi there, I frequently get UTI's and I've been taking

Hi there,

I frequently get UTI's and I've been taking Cipro 500 mg for 7 days every 12 hours for treatment. Right now I have another UTI which isn't as severe as my other ones and I'm taking Cipro 250 mg for 7 days to treat it. I do not have the opportunity to get a urine culture. My question is, is it bad to use the same type of antibiotics every time I get a UTI, should a doctor be switching the treatment up every time? Also are the dosages I'm taking okay for what the severity of my UTI is? Thank you very much

Hi I have been going to the restroom every 5 mins every time I drink water. It s been 2 weeks started with a bloated abdominal and pelvis pressure. I also have lower backache. Is this a UTI? One day ago, my first morning urine was oily cloudy and heavy looking. Am I taking too much vitamins? I am taking 2000mg Vitamin D and a prenatal multi.
