after you finish a week of antibiotics for a bladder infection how long will it take for the symptoms to completely disappear?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Gregory Lewis
43 years experience Urology
See answer : The symptoms of an uncomplicated uti/bladder infection (urinary urgency, frequency, voiding small amounts, bladder discomfort, burning with urination, possible blood in urine) usually resolve within 3-5 days if both the diagnosis is correct (positive urine culture) and you were prescribed the correct antibiotic. If symptoms persist, should have a repeat urinalysis and urine culture to verify.
