Hello dear,I understand your concern.In my opinion urine infection if untreated might lead to preterm labour.Urine infections are routinely seen in pregnancy.As you have treated it might subside.Take plenty of fluids upto 3 litres,coconut water,cranberry juice to prevent urine infection.Dont worry.Repetition of urine test after a week might help to know if the infection is cleared or not.
