I went to this site looking for a home remedy as soon as I started to feel that familiar little tingle. I'be been a chronic sufferer since I was 15, (I am 24 now and have had around 200 infections in the past 9 years) so I know exactly when I am starting to get one. But doctor visits are insanely expensive (last time it was $300 without insurance, only for them to tell me what I already knew and have them prescribe the medicine I already told them I needed). I read a lot of people swearing by the vinegar and others by baking soda, so I tried them together- 1 teaspoon baking soda and 3 teaspoons vinegar. I was already into my third day of having an untreated infection and had little confidence, but all of my symptoms were gone by the next time I used the restroom, which didn't take long since I greatly increased my water intake as well. It's been 24 hours and I've taken another dose of vinegar and baking soda, and am still symptom free. I am going to keep doing this once a day for a week, just to make sure. I also read that people who take a teaspoon of baking soda a day never contract an infection again. I don't know if this is true or not, but It's worth a shot if it will put an end to this problem. If you are a chronic sufferer like me, you can appreciate how amazing it is to have relief and a cure with no doctor visit, paired with the possibility of never getting another infection if this remedy is maintained. Good luck, and I hope it works for others as well as it worked for me!
