Patient: I tested my self at home and it indicates a positive uti been with discomfort for 3 weeks I was going to see a doctor tomorrow but I have my period should I go or wait till my period is done

Symptoms: Burning itching some back pain

Doctor: Thank you for your question. No, you should not wait. The bacteria can still be detected in a urine sample at your docto rs office which will confirm that you have a urinary tract infection. You will likely be treated with prescription antibiotic medication in order to clear this bacteria. Please see your doctor as planned.Thank you for consulting AskTheDoctor.com
