  • Of course you should be going back in. 3 days and you can't move cause your uncomfortable. Call your doctor.

  • I've had it, and the symptoms have always cleared up within a day or two of medication. Never had a problem with the oral meds, though. Go ahead and call, if you're in pain.

  • Call if you're in pain. I had it off and on during my entire pregnancy, but didn't want to be on anti-biotics after the first round of them and it just coming back. So I drank lots and lots of water and 100% cranberry juice. Also, really warm baths helped too. Just make sure it's either not too warm, or you don't fill the water up too high that it covers your belly.
