I understand that if you feel signs of a bladder infection you should drink cranberry juice. Is it true?

Not necessarily. Find out if there is an actual bladder infection. If you have a bladder infection then the cranberry juice is not likely to help as it is used for prevention - not for 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. Antibiotics are used to treat bladder infections.
UTI and cranberries. Cranberry juice makes the urine more acidotic, which inhibits the growth of bacteria. It is not as effective as antibiotics. If you have a bladder infection, see a physician, get a urine culture and get started on an effective therapy, which is an antibiotic that can treat the bacterium causing the infection. Good luck.
