Okay, so I have only gotten 1 U.T.I. in my life prior to this last time. I have never gotten them ever before until about a few months ago. The first time I got it, I think I got it from having sex and not peeing afterwards. I had never felt anything like it and I was soo uncomfortable and in so much pain as you all may already know.

Anyway, my doctor gave me antibiotics which did get rid of the U.T.I., but I did get a yeast infection, which I then had to go get medicine for again afterwards. This 2nd time, I think I got it from not drinking enough water, drinking A LOT of caffeine drinks like iced tea and coffee.

I did not want to make an appointment with my doctor to get antibiotics, which would've been a week from the day I first got the U.T.I., and I did not want to get a yeast infection from the antibiotics again, so I decided to research home remedies, and came upon this website. I tried several of the different remedies all at once, within the hour of running into this site. I ran over to Walgreens, got baking soda and drank it with water. I drank Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar mixed with water, which I already had at home. I also bought AZO Cranberry pills and took 6 right away. The next couple of days, I took a lot of the Cranberry pills throughout the day, and drank PURE Cranberry Juice (Not from concentrate), which you can find for a good price at Trader Joe's. It's very sour/tart, but it's pure and with no added sugar, chemicals, etc.

Anyway, so I did all that for the first 2-3 days, and it seemed to disappear, then i was stupid and went and drank alcohol and ate a lot of chocolate at my boyfriends house then the next day it seemed to start hurting again. So I went to the Vitamin Shoppe, and asked them what was good for a U.T.I. and he of course recommended Cranberry pills, but he convinced me to get Cranberry with D-Mannose. I went home and looked up D-Mannose, and saw that a lot of people took D-Mannose and got rid of the U.T.I. However, D-Mannose only gets rid of U.T.I.'s caused from Ecoli. Most U.T.I.'s are caused from Ecoli, but not all are, so if you take D-Mannose (some time of sugar I believe) and it doesn't go away, you most likely need to get to a doctor and take antibiotics. I also read that the different thing about D-Mannose is that it attaches itself to the Ecoli bacteria stronger than the Ecoli bactoria attaches itself to you. Also it's safe for diabetics to use because it doesn't metabolize it.

So anyway, I took the Cranberry with D-Mannose pills (which is 1 pill by the way, not 2 separate pills) for a couple days, and I went and got a urine test at the doctor's just to make sure, and she told me my urine is completely clear and I had no sign of a U.T.I. Yay!! I cured my U.T.I. I don't think the AZO Cranberry pills were necessary, nor the Baking Soda or Apple Cider Vinegar. They might've helped with the pain, but I think I could've just gotten the Cranberry with D-Mannose pills, and dranken a lot of the pure Cranberry Juice (mixed with water) and a lot of water.

Anywho, don't quote me on all of this, because this is based on a bunch of research I did just browsing through the web trying to get rid my U.T.I. without taking antibiotics and getting a yeast infection. However, I did work for me. I hope this helps for anyone else.
