Worse after antibiotics


Q: I have been on antibiotics for three days for a suspected UTI. Symptoms were: severe pain in pelvic region, around bladder (but did not hurt to push on bladder), frequency, and pain in right flank area. I had a UA which indicated traces of all three of these-- blood, mucus, and bacteria. Urine was almost clear that day. Now, three days later, and on antibiotics, the pelvic pain is still bad and my urine is extremely cloudy with a lot of particles floating throughout it. My Dr. renewed the prescription for the same antibiotic for 7 days. I don't get UTI's regularly (like twice in my life. Any advice as to why it is getting worse and what could cause this cloudiness/particles and pelvic pain?
