Hello Ranggadhitya, Thank you for the question.
What complaints did you experience? Urinary tract infections are infections that occur in urinary tract such as the kidneys, ureters, bladder, urethra.
To find out whether someone has a UTI or not, the doctor needs to do an examination on the sufferer. The doctor needs to know the patient's complaints, do a physical examination, and conduct supporting examinations such as urine and ultrasound. Urine culture examination is usually recommended for patients who are still experiencing symptoms despite taking antibiotics. Urine culture examination aims to grow the bacteria that causes it and then find out which antibiotic is still sensitive to overcome this infection. Urine culture examination will give negative results (not found bacteria or bacteria that grow insignificantly) if the patient has taken antibiotics before. The antibiotics you took previously might still have a slight effect so the bacteria don't grow.
Besides UTI, you may also experience other medical conditions that have similar complaints such as kidney stones, urethritis, prostatitis. You should consult with a urology specialist. The doctor will again ask for your complaint and do the verification to you. The doctor may suggest other examinations such as ultrasound or CT scan. If necessary, your doctor will suggest consulting a microbiology specialist to discuss antibiotics that can be given to you with the results of your urine and urine culture.
In the meantime, please increase your consumption of water and avoid the habit of holding urinating. Avoid intercourse until your complaint is handled.
Hopefully this information is useful.
