While being on antibiotics for bladder infection or uti, how long does the pain last?

Depends. Depends on which antibiotic, which bacteria is growing and the level of resistance that bacteria has to the antibiotic being used. Also, if you doctor assumed it was a uti, but instead it is a urethritis you may need further evaluation. If not better or worse near the end of the antibiotic course, you need to be reevaluated.

However, the vast majority of those who take them have no side effects at all; the main problems come with higher doses for longer times. Azithromycin (Z-pak) is unrelated; that side effect doesn't increase risk from cipro (ciprofloxacin). Read more...

Can men have biofilm bladder infections that don't show up on traditional uti tests?

Yes, ... The bacteria-protecting biofilm formation is demonstrated in tissue electromicroscopic examination, not with traditional urinalysis, and postulated to be key difficulty in eradicating bacteria hiding inside biofilm.
