In brief: One
Most bladder or urinary tract infections are treated with one antibiotic and then another may be added or considered if improvement is not seen within 2-3 days.
Urine cultures are not routinely performed but can be done for various factors if needed to better determine the most effective antibiotic for treatment.

If a culture is performed, the results should yield the correct antibiotic for the infection.
