Hi and welcome to XXXXXXX Thank you for your querry.
Yes, this is normal for uroinfection. You need to wait for at least 5-7 days till antibiotics start working. But there is something you should know. You must be sure that there is no pelvic and reproductive organs infection. So if you notice any kind of vaginal discharge,bleeding, fever >100, chills or pain progression you should visit gynaecologist for further tests, ultrasound and inflamatory markers. If you dont experience such symptoms just finish antibiotics and I am sure it will be fine.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help
