Hello,

I think it would be advisable to do a urine analysis and uroculture to check for infection and bacteria which is causing it. You may need to take antibiotics which come out of uroculture.

Also, I would have treated you empirically with Ciprofloxacin or Levofloxacin for 7 days.

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

Take care

Regards,
