    E col UTI is not an uncommon problem in female but we need to give antibiotics for altelst 2 weeks and re-culture to see the cure / What was the colony count? Thouht he intial presentation as like a cystitis, ascending infection can not be ruled out as well a base line U/S study is also needed.

    Don't give 2 antibiotics. Only 1 will suffice.
