Yes, but can worsen


Yes, a bladder infection can go away on its own, but it can also get worse if not treated. Bladder infections often respond well to natural therapies such as D-Mannose (found in cranberry juice) and herbs like Uva Ursi. See http://bit.ly/1hzuDGK & http://earthclinic.com/CURES/bladder_infection.html If home remedies don't help within a few days or if symptoms worsen see a doctor.

It's possible


If your symptoms are mild ( burning, discomfort) you can wait a little bit to see if it clears up. More serious symtpoms like fevers, nausea vomiting, back pain, worsening burning will require prompt attention and treatment.

May or may not


An acute urinary tract infection that is untreated or not resolving can potentially lead to serious problems including an infection to the kidneys. So get it checked out before symptoms get out of control.

Let's see


Burning with urination can be due to several things. Usually in females it is a bladder infeciton (cystitis). Irritation of the opening of the tube from the bladder (urethra) may be inflammed as well. This can be from many things depending on age, exposures, medications, sexual practices and other issues. Force fluids and if not clearing in 12-24 hours, see MD.

Antibiotics


Antibiotics are the best way to treat a UTI (urine infection). It can become dangerous if untreated and can lead to kidney infections (fevers and back pain). For recurrent UTI, you should see your doctor to rule out any other problems that might not be a UTI or that may predispose you to getting them. Urinate after sex and stay hydrated. Cranberry supplements can't hurt, but don't treat UTI's.

Various reasons


Antibiotic failure may occur due to: insufficient dose & duration of antibiotic; drug-resistant bacteria present, non-bacterial infection with yeast or virus; presence of kidney or bladder stones; surgical hardware or kidney abscess causing persistent infection or drug interactions preventing absorption of the antibiotic. Other diseases can mimic UTI such as: interstitial cystitis & sterile pyuria

Cause not addressed


Antibiotics alone isn't the panacea -no antibiotic will "get rid" of the infection meaningfully unless the underlying cause is addressed. Otherwise, it will recur. A urological evaluation is needed in women if repeated infections occur (in men , it need happen only once) to determine if there is an anatomical or physiological problem that can be fixed- only then can antibiotics finish the job.

Should be gone.


or seriously diminished by the third day. If not should consider whether or not you have a "typical" UTI or whether the right antibiotic was prescribed. Should consider repeating urinalysis and culture of urine.
