I woke up Monday morning with frequent urination, and feeling like I couldn't completely empty my bladder...that evening, the pain with urination started. I called the dr Tuesday morning, went in, they did a urine test, and they diagnosed me with a UTI. I was prescribed a 3 day course of Cipro 500 mg twice a day. I am almost done with the prescription (I have one pill left to take in the morning), and I don't think the antibiotic is working. Initially I thought it was because the pain and frequency went away, but the pain keeps coming back around the time I'm due to take my next dose. The frequency has pretty much stayed gone, but the pain with peeing keeps coming back. I also have a slight constant pain in the bladder area. I'm concerned the antibiotic isnt working, because once the pain went away, shouldn't it have stayed away? Tomorrow is Friday, and I don't want to go all weekend in pain if the antibiotic isn't working.
So for anyone who has experienced this (because this is my first UTI and I am 28), can the pain come and go even if the antibiotic is working? Should I get tested again tomorrow after I finish the prescription?
