The constant need to pee, a burning sensation when you do make it to the toilet, and pelvic cramping and pain are all symptoms associated with urinary tract infections (UTIs). So it’s not surprising that we’re all looking for a quick way to relieve the discomfort.
Drinking cranberry juice has long been hailed as an at-home remedy for UTIs. But does a glass of cranberry juice really help UTIs? Or is it a myth? And if not, how and why does cranberry juice help a UTI?
Below, a urologist explains exactly what UTIs are, the symptoms associated with them, and why cranberry juice has been linked to UTIs.
It’s important to note that if you start to experience any of the symptoms associated with UTIs, you should speak to your health care provider rather than trying to treat it yourself. It’s crucial to get the care you need.
