Yea, thinking  have one. This will be my second on in my entire lifetme, I am 40! My urine is dark and smells funny and if I remember right, that is how it was before the pain hit with the last one I had. I went and bought some cranberry juice here's to hoping it cleans me out enough to where I  dont need to go to doctor. Has Cranberry juice cleared one up for you?

Yep. Cranberry juice and drinking water all day did the trick.

If you start the pain and the constant urinating but hardly anyting comes out. go to your pharmacy and buy AZO. It works ! The only side affect is that any dribble of urine will stain your panties. Use pantie liners and just an FYI your urine will turn Bright Yellow.

Yes and pee often. Even if you don't feel the urge.

You want to drink a lot of water and flush everything through your system.

As far as cranberry juice.....you need to make sure it is real juice, not 'cocktail'.  Also, ANY acidic juice will help - orange, grapefruit, etc.  I used to get UTIs a lot - my doc told me about the drinking any acidic juices.

The Ocean Spray cocktail juice always worked for me.

You can also get the capsules of cranberry from the vitamin aisle. That's what my mom always uses and it works for her.

cranberry juice doesn't get rid of UTI's, start drinkng tons of water.
