  • If you are pregnant, don't wait or at least call an on call Dr. Otherwise it would probably be ok to get an appointment with your Dr. My SIL waited and waited until she was in a lot of pain and finally went to the ER and ended up delivering her baby that day at 25 weeks because the infection had traveled to her uterus.

  • I would suggest an urgent care clinic if there is one nearby. Like other people said, it won't be the end of the world if you wait to get some antibiotics tomorrow, but UTI's suck so for me, I want the meds asap. There are a few over the counter things you can buy to ease the pain. One brand is AZO. I am pretty sure you can get it at Walgreens or a grocery store.

  • Could be passing a stone & it's stuck. You can try drinking pure cranberry juice. Since there is blood, I would go to the ER.
