Looks like you are having moderate symptoms of cystitis

  • pee that's dark, cloudy or strong smelling
  • pain low down in your tummy

You might need antibiotics

Expert:  Zee J replied 13 days ago.

However, you would need to have urine test before you get the antibiotics

Expert:  Zee J replied 13 days ago.

There are 2 options for you to do it quickly:

  1. Either call out of hours GP now or
  2. Go to local hospital emergency (local A&E)

Once you have urine test then if needed they will also provide you with antibiotics

Expert:  Zee J replied 13 days ago.

There is third option, which is online where you can see online GP and get the prescription.

However, that would cost you, as they would charge you separately for video consultation plus prescription also.

The best way to get quick treatment would be to go to A&E to get urine test and treatment

Until that keep using:

1. Paracetamol and Ibuprofen

2. Plenty of fluids

3. Cystitis Sachet

4. Cranberry juice

5. hold a hot water bottle over your lower tummy

6. avoid having sex

7. avoid drinks that may irritate your bladder, like fruit juices, coffee and alcohol

8. pee frequently
