How long does Cipro take to work?

I've been coping with a UTI for weeks now. I was trying to cure it with natural methods but finally gave in and saw a doctor and was prescribed Cipri. That was on Thursday (it's now Saturday). I've taken 5 doses and would have thought the symptoms would be gone by now but I'm still having pain after I pee.

Does anybody know how long it takes for Cipro to work? I know it's usually only taken for three days, so shouldn't it be considerably better by now, near the end of day 2?
