What are some ways to cure a urinary tract infection without going to the doctor?
Drinking water dilutes urine and increases urination frequency, which flushes bacteria from the urinary tract, states Mayo Clinic. A person can prevent anal bacteria from entering the urethra by wiping from front to back after using the bathroom. Some birth control methods, such as diaphragms and spermicide-treated condoms, may contribute to bacterial growth. Urinating after sexual intercourse flushes bacteria from the urinary tract. Cranberry juice and supplements are not proven UTI prevention methods, notes Drugs.com.
