UTI - help?!

So... I have my first ever UTI.
I know to drink lots of water & cranberry juice, but any other advice?!

Just that, really! Take your antibiotics, up your water intake to flush your kidneys etc and hopefully after a day of antibiotics you'll be feeling better.

Definitely go to the doctor for antibiotics, if you haven't yet. I haven't ever been able to cure a UTI without them and I've had several over the years. Otherwise drink, drink, drink like you've been told and that'll help flush the bacteria out of your system. Not really much else you can do, unfortunately. My doctor told me I could take AZO for the pain and pressure but I'd ask your doctor before doing so. Hope you feel better soon!
