I get recurrent UTIs 3-4 times a year and all start after an intercourse. This time was the worst ever, started late night and the condition aggravated within a few hours. Was passing a lot of blood in urine.

My doctor prescricribed antibiotics for 5 days - sulfa something. It's been 4 days since I completed the antibiotics, still the pain and burning has not disappeared fully.

This dscomfort starts in the morning - after my second pee. Then it gets worse, no blood, but kind of pressure and burning. Then as when evening arrives it gets better.

I saw the doctor twice for this, both times she tested my urine, there was no bacteria. She suggested drinking lots of water and giving it time to heal. She also tested me for kidney infection and it came negative.

Any idea when the pain and discomfort will go? Does it take this long for the symptoms to go away? Please please help!
