Urethritis: It would be unusual for pure urethritis to be producing ascending uti, but if it can happen it can happen quickly depending upon the anatomic state of your urinary tract (bladder, ureters, ureterovesicular junction, etc.), the particular microorganism involved and the state of your immune system.
