But if you have a urinary tract infection things already have invaded the bladder so putting lactobacilli anywhere else would not likely help. However 25-42% resolve without antibiotics. Call your doctor to see what is best for you.

I hv UTI, I what drugs should I take to cure it?

Maybe STD?: UTI is rare in males your age. If you're having discharge from the penis, it's an STD: gonorrhea, chlamydia, or nongonococcal urethritis (NGU). If painful or urgent urination, without discharge, maybe UTI after all. See a doctor or clinic for diagnosis; the best antibiotics are different for STDs versus UTI. If you have an STD, you also need blood tests for syphilis and HIV. Good luck!
