How to treat UTI?

i m 4 weeks pregnant, and diagnosed with UTI 4 days back, my pus cells came to be between18-20/hpf and urine culture report is awaited. after the diagnosis i have increased my fluid intake to 3-4 ltrs and i feel much better now as there are no more blood drops in urine for the last 3 days, burning sensation has decreased, i m able to hold the urine as normally i used to, and only sometimes have the urgency to urinate. my concern is should i really take antibiotics (which i dont want to ) or continue with the increased fluid intake and things will come to normal?

As per your history, it may be urinary tract infection.

For further assessment, you may require urine analysis, complete hemogram, ultrasound abdomen after physician consultation.

Till then you can take tablet acetaminophen for pain, syp cital. Keep your self hydrated.

You may require antibiotics like nitrofurontoin after physician opinion and as per culture report.

Hope I have answered your query and let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi goodmorning. Im 17 yrs old and I just had (or still have) UTI. It started the other day when I was constantly peeing, the urge to pee but nothing s there and then the pain after peeing. I went home immediately, but the pharmacies were closed already so I took medicine the next day. The med that I took was Rifampicin, that was what my grandfather gave me (im living with my grandparents). He also said that it had side effects of red urine. I took 2, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. All of the pain went away but the red urine hasn t, and I m just confused if its my period (i m supposed to have my period this week, im a regular) or if its still the side effect of the drug. Please help me? Thank you and God bless.

So I just got diagnosed with a UTI and I m on antibiotics for it.... but now I have very very itchy labia lips and even right inside my vagina... my mom suggested a yeast infection and even the doctor mentioned that my meds can cause a yeast infection... the itching is so intense and I itch it every once in a while and then my skin get sore... I ve only had symptoms for 3 days now... I don t know what to do I need some relief... oh and I should probably tell you I have genital herpes... have had it for a year and a half now... my first outbreak was really bad and painful but every outbreak (which have been just a few since I m on daily med) have just been really minor... I have had a new sexual partner for the last 4 months now and we ve pretty much used a condom up until a few days ago actually... I m really stressed about all this and I m wondering what it all means... if there is any connection between any of the above and what my next move should be....Thanks a lot
