Sound like a UTI?

this started monday evening.

i tried to go to the bathroom, but only a very small amount of urine came out. i still had the sensation that i REALLY had to pee. i thought it might be because the only things i had to drink that day was a diet pepsi and an iced cuppacino. i didn't worry too much. so that night i drank 4 cups of water. the next morning i drank 2 cups of water with breakfast. i tried to go to the bathroom a number of times. still, a tiny bit, or none at all, of urine came out. and it's bothering me. i get a strange sensation around my clitorus sometimes when i try to urinate. i'm not sure if it would be a UTI, some symptoms are dead on for one. but i have that strange one with the clitorus.

i'm going to see my doctor today anyways, but i'm not sure if i'm explaining myself wrong, or i don't fully understand all the sensations i'm feeling.

->question: how long does it take the medication to usually work? are there other methods to treating a UTI?

  • I'm having the same symptoms that you are having right now. I went to the doctors to get checked for a UTI and they came up negative. She told me to take Uristat which is over the counter. You are only supposed to take it for two days, while i took it my symptoms went away but not that i'm off it they are coming back. I havent been having unprotected sex so i don't see how it could be an STD. However, i was convinced that I had a UTI because my current partner is a lot larger then my past boyfriend and it made sense. If you've come to a conclusion as to your problems please let me know. Anything will help!
