you should ask your doctor what was abnormal about your urine

if your doctor gave you a course of antibiotics, then there must have been signs of a bladder urinary tract infection.

how old are you?

frequent urination can be due to overactive bladder muscles. a condition called overactive bladder.

drinking alcohol, too much caffeine and not enough water can irritate the bladder and cause frequent urination as well

how old are you?

hopefully once your antibiotics are done, your frequent urination symptoms will get better.
