I'm Dr Chaithanya attending you

I will sure provide you with the answer.

Yes, urge to urinate frequently is also a symptom of Urinary tract infection.

Lower abdominal pain supports it

You need to get a urine culture test done as soon as possible,

Ultrsound abdomen and pelvis rules out other female causes of pain abdomen

A prophylactic antibiotic like Nitrofurantoin can be started immediately after urine is given for testing.

Let her drink more fluids and let her have cranberry juice 2 times a day
