Hi everyone. 27 year old male here and starting yesterday about mid morning after going to the bathroom, I've had the continuing urge to urinate. It's not a strong urge like that which you get from a UTI, I've had a couple, but maybe this is a warning sign of an on setting one? I've not seen any blood in the urine or any bad odor, not getting any pain in bladder or kidney area. I did have some cloudy drops of urine at the end of the stream last night before going to bed but did not notice any this morning. So could this be a warning sign of a UTI, something else I may need antibiotics for or something that will go away in a couple of days?
Thanks in advance for any advice or help you can give.
Urinating more often or waking from sleep to urinate is often a symptom of urinary tract infection. Do not hold your urine. Urinate as soon as you feel you have to. Also drink plenty of water.
About 50% of people will recover without treatment within a few days. If the symptoms persist or worsen even after intake of adequate fluids then Oral antibiotics such as trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole (TMP/SMX), cephalosporins, nitrofurantoin, or a fluoroquinolone may be needed.
Hope that this information helps and hope that you will get better soon.
