Hi there,

The only time to use antibiotics is if you were having symptoms of a urinary tract infection.

Symptoms include

dysuria or painful urination
frequency or going often
urgency or feeling like you need to go
suprapubic pain
less commonly gross hematuria or blood in urine
fever
chills

Also, you should be treated if you are pregnant.

Were you having any of those symptoms?

No Fever or Chills but all the other symptoms!
Urologist: Dr. Scott, Doctor replied 10 months ago

Unfortunately, you will need to be treated.

The symptoms may get better without treatment, but they may also get worse.

You can also try Pyridium, cranberry juice, and increasing your fluid intake.

What additional questions can I answer?

Urologist: Dr. Scott, Doctor replied 10 months ago

Actually, all UTI's in children and men should be treated too.
All UTI in women with functional, metabolic, or anatomical abnormalities, such as obstruction, urinary stone, pregnancy, diabetes, neurogenic bladder, renal insufficiency, or immunosuppression, as well as any UTI a postmenopausal women need to be treated.

The only time not to treat is when there are no symptoms of UTI, but bacteria on urinalysis.
