  • No-and don't risk it!
  • i've never had one so I don't know but i would be seen for it. i assume it won't go away on it's own since it's a bacterial infection. i would think it could spread to other places like your bladder or kidneys if you don't get some antibiotics. go see your doctor!
  • A mild urinary tract infection may go away on its own without treatment. However, antibiotics are usually recommended because there is a risk that the infection can spread to the kidneys. Antibiotics are taken by mouth, usually from 3 to 7 days.
  • Not without any treatment at all, but sometimes you can get rid of it on your own without going to the doctor. Sometimes.... NOT always! I do this and it often helps so much that I get rid of it. I get some cranberry extract capsules from WalMart or Walgreens etc. and some 500 mg vitamin C tablets and basic aspirin. The most important part of this is to stay very hydrated. Drink lots and lots of water. NOT soda pop, and NOT citrus juices. Those both make things worse. Take 3 capsules of the cranberry with one aspirin and two vit.C's. Wash those down with about 16 oz of water. Keep drinking more water, as much as you can stomach. 3 hours later, take 3 more cranberry tablets and more water. 3 hours after that, do the one aspirin, one more vit. C and 3 more cranberry capsules with more water. Keep this up and the symptoms should get much better fairly quickly. If symptoms get worse (other than frequent urination which you WANT to happen to flush out the bacteria) or don't improve dramatically in 24 hours of this treatment, go see a doctor. I use this regimen when I feel the symptoms beginning, and I can almost always ward it off. If it's more advanced already it's harder to beat but can be done. There comes a point though, where nothing but antibiotics will help. If you're bleeding and in agony, go straight to the doctor and use this regimen the next time you begin to feel the familiar symptoms and you'll likely be able to ward it off.
