In brief: Depends

Anectdotal suggestions of drinking cranberry juice have some merit, as the drink can make your urine acidic and kill some minor bacteria, but your best bet is getting a urinalysis and culture with sensitivities to accurately diagnose your UTI and learn what bacteria is causing it, as well as what antibx will erradicate it.
Best wishes.
