UTIs are caused by bacteria entering the urinary tract. The most common bacteria to cause a UTI is E Coli. Infection can happen due to wiping incorrectly and bringing fecal matter into the urinary tract. They can also be contracted during sex which is why it is recommended to pee after intercourse to flush out the urinary tract.
Antibiotics are fast acting, some people feel symptom relief in a matter of hours. Generally you should start to feel better within 48 hours. If your symptoms get worse or do not improve within 48 hours it is likely you are not suffering from a bacterial infection. You should see the doctor for follow up treatment.
The length of antibiotic treatment for UTI and the dosage will depend on the severity of your infection. Typically antibiotics for a UTI are prescribed for 3 to 5 days.
