I'm unsure if I have a UTI or something more

I'm unsure if I have a UTI or something more serious. I've been having lower abdominal discomfort/pressure, with a shooting pain below my navel every so often. I've also felt like I need to urintate constantly and have some minor pain while doing so. I took home UTI tests 3 times and all came back positive for the leukocyte test but negative for nitrites. This has been going on a few days. I've made a doctor's appointment but it's taking days for me to get in. At first today I felt like my symptoms had been decreasing but I've suddenly started feeling worse. Tonight I began experiencing some cramping and pain on the left side of my abdomen as well. I'm not sure if the situation is emergent or if I can wait until my doctor's appointment tomorrow. Another reason this has caused me to worry is because I took plan b about 6 weeks ago after my partner's condom fell off during sex. I did have my period as normal about 3 weeks ago and have not had sexual intercourse since. Not sure if it could be related but just in case.

I ve had a few symptoms of a uti for years now, it comes and goes, Everywhere I go they say it s a uti or something of that short, they give me pills and it doesn t help. It burns when I urinate often. Sometimes it ll hurt up to an hour or so.. I googled it , which I know is never a smart thing but I think I found out what could be! I don t have insurance and I m working all the time, and like i said it goes away for a few months and comes back for a few months.. I found a website that was talking about IC, it s something that women get but its not very common.. My question is what exactly is IC, could that be what i have? And what is something I can do to prevent it or to help it?

I ve recently been diagnosed with a uti. I ve completed the medication for it, however I ve noticed one of the symptoms of it still lingers: whenever I urinate, discharge that falls in the toilet become solid looking and form what seems like frothy clusters. Is this a sign of something more severe?
