During my early twenties, I used to have urination problems monthly. I felt like I would have to pee all the time, and then when I went I would only pee a little or not at all. My bladder constantly hurt and I began to get scared to urinate, because it would cause severe pain. I was worried that I had a kidney condition or renal syndrome.
My doctors would always say that it was a urinary tract infection, UTI, or a bladder infection. I would be given antibiotics to treat it, but nothing cured it.
I started drinking cranberry juice and drinking plenty of water. That seemed to help, but what has really helped me is taking natural cranberry supplements daily. I have not had a bladder infection in almost a year now, which is great for me!
