However, since I became sexually active, I'd had about 10 or so UTIs (in the last 2 years). I was ALWAYS prescribed a 7 or 10 day course. This has been different doctors and different types of antibiotics. I've been on Macrobid, Cipro, Bactrim, Keflex, Augmentin...pretty much everything, and I've always gotten a week or more course. And this has been from very mild UTIs (one or two I didn't even have symptoms yet, but I was tested because I was already at the doctors and I'd been having a string of them) to very, very bad UTIs (the worst I was peeing pure, opague red blood).
So my question is: Has anyone been prescribed only a 3 day course of antibiotics for a UTI? If so, what kind of antibiotic was it? I wonder if it is only certain ones.
Thanks so much for any help!!
