I think you can ask your doctor for a urine culture and sensitivity test after the completion of antibiotics for confirmation.

Probably your urine culture report is normal.
No growth of bacteria is there.
Your doctor may prescribe urine alkaliser like citralka etc.
Drink plenty of water.
Don't hold urine for long hours.
Drink cranberry Juice.
Urine pH may be checked as well.
