3 days: Most utis are effetively treated in 3-5 days, if you are on the right antibiotic. It's also possible that a UTI is not the only cause of your symptoms. If they persist, you might benefit from a visit to your gynecologist or even an urologist.

If persistent a repeat urine culture is probably in order to exclude a resistant bacteria to the antibiotics patient is taking
