No: Takin cranberry juice during an UTI episode could make things worst, given that the juice is high n sugar and promotes bacterial feeding. You can start taking cranberry juice after you are treated and cure, and this will help prevent the incidence.

No: Prevention - not treatment. Cranberry juice can help to prevent urinary tract infections (UTI's) in women with recurrent UTI's because of the proanthyocyanidins (PACs) it contains.
