    I had a tubal ligation two years ago.  I have currently been experiencing pregnancy symptoms, such as nausea, light headedness, excessive tiredness, abdominal swelling and an unexplainable weight gain of 5+ lbs.  I went to the doctor the pregnancy test was negative.  I was informed I had a UTI, and that was the cause for my symptoms.  I have had UTI's in the past and never experienced everything I am now.  My symptoms have continued while on antibiotics.  What should I do?

    Hello,

    I am not a doctor and can't diagnose you, but those symptoms (except for perhaps the weight gain) can all be related to a UTI.  If the antibiotics are not improving your condition, you really need to return to the doctor for follow up care.  How long have you been taking antibiotics?  It may take a while for them to take effect.

    Good luck,
