  • Go to the doctor, you will need antibiotics.

  • Ask your doctor about it. They will most likely send you to get a lab test, then prescribe pregnancy-safe medicine.

  • Go to your doctor and get it confirmed. A UTI won't go away without antibiotics! Usually takes several days on the antibiotic to help. And drinking cranberry juice or taking cranberry pills helps. (AZO)

  • Def see your ob first. Next step is to drink lots of water and cranberry juice. Good luck.

  • Usually has to have antibiotics. Like the previous posts said, it will go away in a few days on antibiotics, and they can give you some pills (I think you can take while pregnant?) that stops the burning almost immediately. I used to get them a lot when I was pregnant with my oldest. You have to make sure you go pee every time right after you have sex, and if you have even the slightest feeling of needing to pee, don't hold it in. Lots and lots of water and 100% juice cranberry drinks.

  • You can try cranberry juice, but antibiotics would probably be best.
