People suffered from UTIs long before antibiotics were discovered in the early twentieth century, of course.

One can always dream up possible scenarios that will contradict even the best scientific models.
(The better the model, the more farfetched the loopholes are.) If you crave the certainty of a real "proof," the final word as it were, then you had better stick to mathematics or logic!
When they are not effective, doctors must turn to more toxic drugs, and the more those drugs are used, the less effective they in turn become.
When those drugs stop working, doctors will be left with a drastically reduced toolkit with which to fight infection.
that usually cause UTIs crawl up the urinary tract, they can cause kidney failure and fatal blood poisoning.
But antibiotics may not be saving us from UTIs for very much longer.
There is also evidence that the genes that give bacteria resistance to drugs are being spread in livestock farming operations, where antibiotics are a common ingredient in animal feed.
Scientists tracking UTIs from 2000 to 2010 found a dramatic uptick in cases caused by resistant to the drug trimethoprim-sulfame-thoxazole jumped from 17.9% to 24.2%.
These are two of the most commonly prescribed antibiotics used to treat UTIs.
