Almost always: Utis are generally self-limited, they clear by themselves. If not, imagine what would have happened to women before antibiotics!
Dr. Vasudha Kaushik

It might, try this: Lowered immunity can cause UTIs. Taking a zinc supplement 50 mg/day (with food), vitamin D3 ~5000-10,000 IU/day, and a good probiotic daily might help solve the problem since they boost immunity and reduce pain and inflammation.

The length of time it takes for a UTI to clear up.?

Depends...: The length of time it takes to clear a urinary tract infection depends on the burden of the infection & how quickly appropriate antibiotics are started. Uncomplicated utis are treated with 3 days of antibiotics, and symptoms subside quickly and usually disappear by 7 days. Complicated utis including kidney infection, foreign bodies, and resistant organisms will increase the duration of treatment.

Possibly: Generally if a UTI is truly present, one would do better using an antibiotic. The use of otc products such as cranberry juice or water can be helpful there are other meds that can be used as well that relax the bladder discomfort. Good idea to get a urine culture to verify the infection and the use of the antibiotic.

See a doctor: You are not going to cure a UTI with "home remedies", "natural substances", prayer or anything else. And if the symptoms regress it does not mean that the infection is gone. Get this treated and feel better. Would you spit on your care in the hopes that the dead engine will start?

UTI: Depends upon the type of uti, the treatment , the underlying cause of the infection, and so on. For uncomplicated cystitis this should respond within 24-48 hrs, but may take longer to cure.

UTI treatment: Tmp/smx commonly known as bactrim, (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) is usually effective. You should have a urine culture set up to identify if the infection is due to a strain that is resistant.
