Antibiotic resistance occurs when bacteria that cause an infection develop the ability to resist the effects of an antibiotic. This makes it increasingly more difficult to treat the infection. Antibiotic resistance is typically caused by overuse and misuse, but anytime you use an antibiotic it can potentially lead to resistance.

Because UTIs can lead to serious issues if left untreated such as kidney infections, renal damage, and sepsis, UTIs have been a major focus for global health officials in the fight against antibiotic resistance. In the last decade, the number of antibiotic resistant UTI cases nearly doubled from 8%-15%.

The antibiotic needed to treat a UTI depends on the type of bacteria causing the infection. In order for doctors to identify the specific bacteria causing the infection, they must get a urine culture. But it takes several days to get results back from the lab, so doctors will typically make a best-guess of what bacteria is causin the infection. This leads to a lot of antibiotic misuse.
