I agree that antibiotic may have altered the culture result.

Your doctor may need to prescribe your Nitrofurantoin for 7-10 days as culture is negative but you have persistent symptoms. This may resolve your symptoms.

You may get a culture test again after 72 hours of stopping the antibiotic to prevent the recurrence and chronic UTI.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
