Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
yes, you can most likely wait 2 days to see a urologist.
you need to get a urine analysis and urine culture to confim bacteria in your urine and what antibiotics it is sensitive to
doctors shouldn't treat a UTI based on your symptoms alone without a urine culture.
a urine culture test can take 2-3 days after a urine sample to see if you have bacteria growing in your urine
overactive bladder muscles, a bladder stone, not drinking enough water can all cause symptoms similar to a UTI.
so using symptoms alone is often unreliable to know if you have bacteria in your urine.
