1-2 days: You should expect symptomatic relief within 1-2 days. If not, then your infection is probably on-going and you will likely need to undergo a course of antibiotics as well.

Variable: Hopefully within an hour or two. However, also hope that u have had a urinalysis + urrine culture if positive for a uti.
