I'm here to tell you drinking cranberry juice does not prevent bladder infections. I lived on that stuff for a year and it didn't do any good.

Once you have it you pretty much have to get a prescription.
Drinking lots of water(not pop,coffee ect), wiping front to back and urinating immediately after sex can help prevent it.
Also you never want to use anything for a lube other than KY or an exact equivalent- other ingredients can cause an infection!

UTIs can indeed be a recurrent problem to some people. I have a friend who actually experiences a bladder infection once or twice a year. While self-care measures don't treat the infection itself, she still practices them to potentially reduce her risk of a UTI. If you wish to find out more about bladder disorders and similar problems, could be a good reference for you.

Some women are especially more susceptible to getting recurrent bladder or urinary tract infections more than others. While cranberry juice may not entirely target the infection, it may help prevent it from coming back. There are other home remedies that may reduce a person's risk of repeated UTIs too. I also came across some posts on the net that may help those with similar problems. Try searching for

Install a bidet and use it after urinating and B.M,it will help clear up bladder infections.Works like a sells them.Google bidet.Drink 8 glasses of filtered water a day at least to flush things out.

Bladder infections, especially when recurrent and without proper treatment, may eventually cause damage to the kidneys and even stimulate urinary incontinence. Reports from transvaginal-mesh-lawsuits/ say that a type of bladder problem known as stress urinary incontinence is now commonly treated by bladder sling implants, but these too have been linked to adverse effects that may even be more threatening than the condition to which it is being used.
