Repeat urinary tract infections: What can I do?

I wanted you to know that about 24 yrs ago I had chronic kidney and uti infections. I just could get rid of them. Sulfur drugs antibiotics and multiple times with shots in each kidney on a daily basis for several days. I had heard cranberry and water obviously great for them, but also was a teenager so learning. I went to the pharmacy and bought several bottles of the strongest herbal capsule cranberry I could find. Mainly cause I just don’t like cranberry juice. I doubled the dosage on the bottle and kept with it for about 60 days then backed down to normal dosage and remained on it for about a yr. I had not had another one since. So 20 + yrs. I did recently have a kidney stone followed by a kidney infection and also told that my urinalysis indicated I might be a group strep b carrier. I am back on the cranberry double strength twice a day hoping this should clear things up. I just wanted to share my experience with cranberry. Thanks.
Ps I’m not a big herbal person but the cranberry sold me all the way.

I’ve been using a cranberry supplement daily for many years. A gynecological uroogist told me to eat yogurt everyday. I’ve done that and now I’m on 1 trimehtoprim (antibiotic-low dose) every day. Urologist does me fine.
