    What causes recurrent UTI despite taking Macrobid?

I am taking my last macrobid antibiotic tonight for my uti. My symptoms went away within the first couple days of taking it, but came back today after sexual intercourse. I did urinate afterward as I always do. Could the sex have caused the uti to flare again, or become worse? I really don t want to have to go back to the doctor and take more antibiotics.

If you are having recurrent UTIs you may need to get anytime cultures and sensitivity reports, and ultrasound KUB and whether to restart antibiotics should be decided after that. Also the partners urinalysis may also be done to treat him too if needed. Keep good hydration meanwhile.

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

Wishing you a speedy recovery.
