    That’s what happens with Urgent Care. I absolutely hate them. I’ve never been to one for a UTI – I usually go to the gyno for that. I don’t know anything about Cipro, but I would call Urgent Care back up and your gyno and ask them both what they think.

    Also, do you pee after sex? I ask because if you don’t, you can get a UTI again. Not sure that’s what caused it (maybe you’re running too much and not drinking enough), but just making sure.

    I feel like a 10k isn’t that strenuous – my BFF runs 6 miles every morning so there’s that lol – but obviously only you know your body and how hard you’ve been training and all that. Personally, I don’t think I could get up right now and run 6 miles without blowing out my knee even when I’m not on Cipro hahaha.. I would just call the Dr.s and ask.

    Good luck!

    I’d actually go back to the pharmacy and ask the pharmacist’s opinion– they’re usually more helpful and knowledgeable than urgent care docs. Good luck!

    @Woodstock:  Last time I had a UTI was 4 years ago, I think it was my second one, but I felt like my first one wasn’t that bad. This one, I was peeing blood and I freaked out, thought I had cancer or something and went straight to the ER. Turns out, I wasn’t peeing after sex and I was just pretty darn lucky up until then! lol.. I hate urgent care for that reason though, they are SO fast because they just want to get to the next patient. That doesn’t mean that I don’t go to them, I just know going into it that I have to force time with the Dr. If I have a question, I’m going to ask it even if that means waiting at the front desk for one of the receptionists to ask the Dr and come back with an answer or come back with him for a minute to talk. Lesson learned, though – I learned it the hard way, too. Nothing sucks worse than leaving the Dr’s office with a million questions and those questions cannot be answered through research on the internet bc medical stuff cannot be answered that way. I’m sorry I don’t have any experience with Cipro (I’ve never heard of it before), but I would just call the Urgent Care back and ask to speak with the Dr and hopefully he’ll get back to you. Cover your basis though and call your regular gyno, too, and leave a message w/ him/her.

    @Woodstock:  do you have a healthcare line where you are? I’m in Canada so I know it’s different up here, but we have a phone number called health link that has nurses there to help 24/7. I’d call them and ask.

    I’ve taken Cipro on several occasions, it helps the UTI and I’ve had no problems with it.  I’m the queen of UTI’s (I’ve had 20 of them in the last 4 years.)

    @Woodstock:  I felt like that too. When I get them they go from 0 to extreme in less than an hour.  I’ve taken Cipro a good 4-5 times and the rest I have taken Macrobid (and once Amoxicillan).

    The best one for me is Macrobid, I actually just took it 3 weeks ago for a UTI.  UTI chances increase when pregnant lucky me LOL

    I’ve run on cipro before. I cant take cipro anymore due to it making me really really sick stomach wise with all my other medicines but its a good drug. I ran a half on 2 antibiotics last spring and pseudophedrine. I do not reccomend doing that, I finished but I did not feel glorious afterwards.

    You will be fine. As always, listen to your body, but tendon ruptures on ciprofloxacin are more common in patients over 60 years old, or in those with heart, kidney or lung transplants. Ciprofloxacin is an excellent choice for UTI’s because it works against water-borne bacteria – aka: the bacteria in your urine.
