What To Expect
No follow up is required if your symptoms have resolved after you have completed your full course of antibiotics. Consider scheduling a follow-up appointment if your symptoms persist 3 days or more after your last dose of antibiotics. If you have a history of recurrent infections, consider scheduling a follow-up appointment at least every 6 months to check for infection via urinalysis. If you become infected more than 3 times a year, it is best to get a catheterized urine specimen to reduce the risk of sample contamination.
We can confirm a UTI with a good clean catch urine sample to be sent for urinalysis and urine culture. You can provide a urine sample at a walk-in clinic, or you may request a urine kit be sent to your home. If results are positive, we will send a prescription antibiotic to your pharmacy.
