What To Expect

Timeline


Walk-In Clinic Test Results: Typically take 2 - 3 days to come back. Home Kit Test Results: Typically 3 to 5 days longer due to shipping. Depending on your risk factors, and if you are having severe symptoms, we may give you a same-day prescription. Note: Taking the wrong antibiotic can lead to antibiotic resistance. That means, when you do require an antibiotic to treat a bacterial infection, there is a risk that it may not work, so same-day prescriptions are discouraged.




Treatment


UTIs are caused by bacteria, not a virus, and are therefore treated with antibiotics. To determine if you have a UTI, and which bacteria caused it, we will complete a urinalysis and a urine culture. Depending on the severity of your symptoms, you may require IV antibiotics and hospitalization.




Follow-Up


No follow up is required if your symptoms have resolved after you have completed your full course of antibiotics. Consider scheduling a follow-up appointment if your symptoms persist 3 days or more after your last dose of antibiotics. If you have a history of recurrent infections, consider scheduling a follow-up appointment at least every 6 months to check for infection via urinalysis. If you become infected more than 3 times a year, it is best to get a catheterized urine specimen to reduce the risk of sample contamination.




Testing


We can confirm a UTI with a good clean catch urine sample to be sent for urinalysis and urine culture. You can provide a urine sample at a walk-in clinic, or you may request a urine kit be sent to your home. If results are positive, we will send a prescription antibiotic to your pharmacy.
