Okay. So I have had a UTI for almost 2 months now. This is the second time I am having one. The first time I had a UTI was about a year ago. The first time I had It, it went away in a day. Back then I had all the symptoms of a normal UTI. Fever with chills, burning sensation while peeling and Bloody urine. But this time, all I had was the severe burning. Like the last time, I was put on a 5 day course of nitrofurantoin and drinking Citralka. But since the burning subsided within a day, I just stopped my course on day 3 and continued drinking Citralka. Life was back to normal for about a week. And then one day I felt a slight burn after I passed urine. At like the very top of my urethra. It wasn't too painful but still pretty noticeable. I didnt want to concluded anything and hence I decided to see if the pain persists when I peed again. The next time I peed not only did it burn but I noticed a toxic odour. The next few times I went it still smelled bad. Sent my urine for culture, the tests revealed that I had e coli and that I was sensitive to Magnex Forte. The doctor recommended that I go on 7 day course of Magnex. Magex is an IV antibiotic. I am on day 6 today and I still feel that slight burn. The only difference is I don't feel the burning while peeling. But I feel it when I sit down or lie down... a weird pressure against the very end of my urethra. I have a feeling that after I stop my course of antibiotics my UTI will come back again. Is there any out of this hell?
P.S: I am not very sexually active. Although the UTI I am currently experiencing did follow after sex, i have sex like once in 3 months. I have had sex before (with condoms on each time) but never had an UTI. After this whole UTI thing I have never had sex.
