Can you get a uti from taking antibiotics?

There are a number of reasons your UTI antibiotics may not be working to eradicate your UTIs for good:

  • You may not be taking the right antibiotic to treat the specific cause of your UTI
  • Your symptoms may be caused by more than one organism, and antibiotic susceptibility testing for the entire bacterial community may be more relevant
  • The duration of your treatment may be insufficient
  • Your UTI symptoms may not be caused by bacteria

Does penicillin cure an uti? Yes, penicillin can treat a UTI, but it must be the full course and it cannot be expired. Hope that helps.

Why do you get yeast infections after taking antibiotics? Taking antibiotics can cause vaginal yeast infections. It’s because while killing the bacteria that cause infection in your body, they also change the vaginal pH to less acidic, killing the friendly bacteria which help prevent vaginal yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis.

Can UTI symptoms linger after antibiotics? Luckily, most urinary tract infections are not serious and can be easily treated with antibiotic medications. The symptoms of a urinary tract infection can be stubborn and can persist after treatment. Sometimes an infection recurs a few weeks after treatment.

What causes blood in urine after antibiotics? Some drugs, like the antibiotic penicillin or the cancer drug cyclophosphamide, can cause blood in your urine. It also might happen if you take medications like aspirin or the blood thinner heparin, especially if you already have a condition, like a urinary tract infection, that makes your bladder bleed more easily.
