Ouch! I had one in january and I went straight to the er (insurance covered it as an emergency)... It will probably only get worse... Just drink lots of water (cruel, right?) and cranberry juice... Thats pretty much all that you can do until they give you the magic pills that take everything away.

the best thing to do right now is to drink cranbery juioce as much s you can. Try not to wash yourself with soap or bodywash which will destroy the normal mushrooms of your body. You need to keep the body's natural mushrooms in order to protect you from other diseases. Cgange nyour underwear 3 times a day. Prepare a galo of warm water which is included with one tea spoon of soda powder, whenever you go to toilet, try to wash yourself with that. It would be a great help. Keep us posted if any improvement appears up.

It Came Back
I called my doctor and he put me on some strong medicine for my urinary tract infection. One I took 3 times a day for 2 days and the other for 5 days two times a day. Well I was fine and then I waited about three weeks after finishing my medicine to have sex, and it came back. I am bleeding when I urinate, and it hurts so bad like I have to goto the bathroom so bad, but I only urinate a lil bit and its very painful. I don't know whats going on,,,,please help

A few years back I had the uti from hell! :twisted: my dr put me on strong meds but within one-two days of finishing them my infection came back. I was doing all the right things you should do but it turns out I just had a monster infection and ended up going on two cycles of meds back to back and it finally went away. Good luck!

I posted this for a previous post and I see you are asking again.

In addition to what I say below, I want to add that although I have been without sickness for a long time, I have been fighting a fungus infection. One of the drugs prescribed for me said a side effect was "fungus infections" duh, so I just decided to go with herbs.

I forgot to mention to you that you should also explore herbs. Just put "uti" and "herbs" into google and you'll get lots of information. I should also state and I am 100% against drugs and will do almost anything to avoid them because every time I take a drug for one thing, I end with with two side effects that are harder to treat than the original.

Back to the herbs - - after a long period of time experimenting with various herbal medications, I hit upon a combination of herbs that are finally helping, but something new and exciting happened in the last two weeks. I ran out of my oral garlic tablets, which I usually take on a regular basis with my other vitamins and food supplements, and the rate of healing of my fungus problem slowed down! When I realized what was happening, I raced out and bought some more garlic and am now taking 500 units/ mg three times a day, and healing has resumed. So regardless of what else you are doing for your body, add garlic tablets. Garlic is a food, and it can't hurt you, and you can't really overdose on it, as if anyone would want to. Study about garlic and you will be amazed. The russian army used it in wwii when it ran out of penicillin. Think about that ! ! !

Now follows my original post when this question was asked before.


I'm not sure why this post on uti is in with cosmetic surgery, but whatever.

I am a great proponent of chiropractic as a starting place for almost everything. People think that chiropractic is about the bones, but it's really about the nerves which are protected by the bones of the spine. If the nerves are irritated or pinched, the wrong messages go back and forth between the brain. So I suggest you start with a good chiropactor.

Next make sure you are drinking 8 larges glasses of pure water (distilled is great) daily. Cut out all the bad stuff - no coffee, tea, soft drinks, alcohol, none, zero, zilch. Your kidneys and bladder are unhappy so you must not abuse them, and give them only that which is healthful to them. Drink only water and fruit juices. Since I started drinking cranberry juice, I haven't had sickness of any kind . . . Including uti's or colds. I see a chiropractor once a month forever.
