Treatment Of Urinary Tract Infections?
HealthReplies.com, for 2 months from June to July I had a urinary tract infection already on ultrasound, blood tests, urine. As long as I took the medicine my doctor gave me, my stomach didn’t change and until now it still hurts when I urinate. Even the pain reaches the back of the bone and sometimes I walk a little when squatting. As a result of this infection, I haven’t had my period in August, my body is hot, my weight has decreased. I asked whether I should take antibiotics continuously, and how did the doctor advise me what should I do?
