UTI - Bactrim not working?

Hi all...

Wednesday I caught a UTI... well, that's when I noticed it - any other week I would have brushed it off as irritation as it was only minor discomfort, but coincidentally UTIs had come up in conversation a number of times in the week and I figured it'd be just my luck. Jinxed :P So, I started antibiotics that evening. I has given Bactrim and told to take it twice daily for three days. I only have one left (I've taken them all as instructed) and I'm still uncomfortable. It hasn't gotten worse, but it hasn't gotten better. Strange because I'm not really having any other symptoms of a UTI (had one or two before), just some irritation/minor burning. I'm urinating regularly, normal volume - none of those false alarms/frequent urges. Well, I am going frequently, but as the volume is normal I'm pretty sure it's just because I've been drinking a ton of water...

So, they said they (planned parenthood) were sending the urine sample to a lab and would call if it was resistant to the Bactrim, but I haven't heard anything.

Anyone know how long it should take to feel better on the Bactrim? I would've thought by the last dose (I just took the second-to-last pill) I'd be feeling better...

If it doesn't ease up I'll be calling them tomorrow.
