Hope something here helps! A UTI is a special kind of hell :(
Drink WATER! Lots and lots of water!
At the minimum of 1 gallon per day.
Make a "slushy" of a bag of frozen organic cranberries
and drink 1 bag every 2 days. Can add some blueberries to this,
if you like.
If you can't tolerate the above, get a high quality brand of
freeze-dried cranberry or cranberry acidophilous combination.
High quality Vit C supplement 2000mg day.
High quality probiotic.
Stop eating sweets. Ramp up the greens.
No carbonated beverages or caffeine.
Eat lots of garlic.
Eclectic Institute has several UTI products:
Nature's Way herbal combination called Juniper Berry combination.
It contains Juniper berries, marshmallow root, uva ursi, golden seal,
and a some other things.
Leave off underwear or only wear white cotton that has been double rinsed in the laundry or add vinegar to final rinse cycle. Get lots of air flow to area.
Don't use colored or scented toilet tissue.
No bubble baths or scented bath oils or body washes.
No sex [or friction in area] while having symptoms and when sex is resumed, drink LOTS of water before and urinate before and IMMEDIATELY after!
Drink plenty so you can urinate frequently but try not to strain while urinating.
If you start running a fever, passing blood in your urine or experiencing pain in the kidney area, call the practitioner you use for GYN visits and get an appt right away!
Hope something here helps you out!

I think that there may be a stress element to attacks. Try to reduce your stress levels.
I suffered from it for about 35 years but have not had an attack since going raw.
