Resolved Question:

I've contrcted UTI 4 times. I had a UTI 3 months back when i was pregnant. So, i had discontinued my medication. I had an abortion immediately after. Now, i have what seems to be a UTI. I'm having the same medicines prescribed to me before. DO i need to consult a doctor and would this lead to complications in the future?

You need an Antibiotic - the pills you are taking will NOT cure an infection - so you need something such as Macrobid, Nitrufurantoin, Keflex, Bactrim, Septra.
