Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I look forward to answering your question. What symptoms exactly are you having? Cystitis or urinary tract infection- symptoms are blood in the urine, urinary frequency, and pain or burning with urination. You do not need to see your gp in person during covid19 for this. He or she can call in a prescription for antibiotics for you. Please reply with questions and consider a positive rating. We are not compensated without a rating. thank you for using JA.

I have urinary frequency and pain but not only with urination. The pain remains after using the toilet. Also I feel tired and sick and yesterday night my temperature rised a bit 37,8

It sounds like you are cramping due to the morning after pill and that its not cystitis If you start bleeding soon, you will know thats what it is from.

Okay thanks! How long the symptoms could last?
Expert:  Dr. K. replied 1 year ago.
As long as a week, but generally only a few days. You may want to call your gp for a prescription to have on hand just in case
