So I had my first UTI at the beginning of Jan (oh joy), and I had all the standard symptoms (burning pee, frequent trips to the bathroom) so I got my first 3 day course of antibiotics. Then a week later I still had some burning at the end of peeing so I went again and they gave me Flagyl (1 dose).
It's been 6 days since then and I think I still feel that uncomfortable pressure where you feel you need to go to the bathroom. It's very slight and I'm not sure if Im just being paranoid. I also got itchiness (side effect of taking Flagyl) which is calming down now. But I'm unsure if I need to take MORE pills to get rid of this completely?
I called the doc and she said wait it out, but I want this to be OVER. It's been 3 weeks, I have no insurance since I'm only visiting the US, and have spent over $300 on appointments and pills. I'm still taking cranberry and drinking water. Anyone have any experience or advice?
