I swear by cranberry juice for UTI's - though you probably should see a doctor too, especially if it's your first (or second) time! Thanks for the good info about interstitial cystitis.
In my vast experience, any kind of RED cranberry juice drink works - I usually get some sort of juice blend "cocktail," never 100% cranberry. But once I tried "white cranberry juice cocktail" and it didn't work at all. The cranberry pills seem to work too, though you never know what you're getting in supplements.
Speaking of juice, I'm a big fan of homemade juice soda - 1 cup or less juice (any kind) with enough club soda or mineral water to fill up a tall glass. Less sugar, a lighter taste, and a little fiz for excitement!
