Have you been to a doctor?  You probably need to get an antibiotic.  The only thing you can do for the pain is taking regular pain medicines like Advil.

The AZO tablets did nothing for me.  I always went to the doctor immediately.

OMG, I remember getting one before.  It was THE WORST.  I’m so sorry!!  I was still in college then, my mother told me to use boric acid…?  I think its a mild form of anticeptic.  I was too stubborn to go out and find it, I waited until the college clinic was open and I drank cranberry juice like I was in a chugging contest.  Apparently it helps.  I hope the symptoms go away for you soon!

I get UTIs every few months because of a medical condition, and sorry to say, but besides the AZO tablets, nothing helps the pain for me. 🙁  The AZO tablets take away all my symptoms though, so hopefully they do for you too!  Make sure you get some antibiotics to get rid of the infection because the AZO tablets just get rid of the symptoms, not the underlying problem.  With antibiotics and AZO tablets, I’m back to normal in 2 days.

I use to get them from the spermicide on condoms, but since I switched w/ a no spermicide. I do not get them anymore. About the cranberry juice, it doesn’t help while you have an infection. You drink it before, and make sure you get the 27 % Real Cranberry Juice. You drink this before, like 1 to 2 glasses a day. This will help build up the walls of your bladder, and the good bacteria, which will help with not getting a UTI. When getting one, my only suggestion. Is drinking plenty of water, you just need to flush your system, and take antibotics. I used to get these all the time, and had to go to a urologist. They suck, and I feel for you guys!

Oh, and I agree about the cranberry juice.  It only helps to prevent infections, not get rid of one once you have one!

There’s actually a natural remedy you can use that I found when I lived in London called “D-Mannose.”  I order it now from a company called Waterfall D-Mannose (also known as “Sweet Cures”) because it worked so amazingly.  Unlike AZO, it doesn’t just treat the symptoms, but actually can cure your UTI and it can work within hours!

You can try ordering caplets online (either through Sweet Cures or some other companies…there are domestic companies who sell D-mannose).  Also, in a pinch, you could go to a health food store.  I know Whole Foods sells D-Mannose but their brand isn’t as good as some others that I’ve tried.

Hope that helps!

Drink lots of Cranberry juice. The real stuff though, not the “juice” kind. It should help a lot 🙂
