I have a urinary track infection and I am taking an atibotic for it; this is the 4th day of the medication. Does a UTI interfer with sex? Can my husband be infected by the infection? and How long does it take the medication to kill the infection? I have heard most antibiotics kill the infection within 48 hours but we are to finish the medication so the infection won't reacur.

Does your husband plan on having intercourse with your urethra? Of course not. Your UTI is in your bladder, not your vagina. Therefore, if you feel up to having sex, then go for it.

It takes as long as the antibiotic has been prescribed to completely rid the body of the infection. Far too many people stop the medication when they feel better and yet the infection has not been effectively dealt with.
