In brief: Sorry won't work
You need antibiotics to first get rid of the uti.
Then try cranberry gelcaps or tabs. To reduce liklihood fof urther utis (cranberry reduces ability of bacteria to adhere to bladder lining). Hope ur urinating after sex, wearing cotton panties + no thongs, taking showers & not baths, drinking plenty of water & avoiding constipation. Might still require Macrodantin (nitrofurantoin) after sex. Good luck.
