The management of uncomplicated urinary tract infections in premenopausal women has been debated clinical extensively. Recommendations for the culture colony count growth have varied and been reported as needing103, 105 and 1010 depending on the study.

Treatment recommendations vary from a single dose therapy, 3 day therapy, 5 day therapy, 7 day therapy and even 10 day therapy.
