    When I was a kid my friend's mum kept cranberry juice in the fridge which she called "women juice". Apparently it helps with cystitis.

    Though, tbh, I think if you drink a lot of anything it should flush out the infection.

    Are you sure it's not turned into a UTI? Because if you leave cystitis and don't treat it you can get a pretty nasty kidney infection (I'm quite prone to them).

    How long have you had it for? You could try cystitis sachets which make your pee less acidic and less painful, but they can't turn back time, so if you have a UTI you'll need to go see your GP to get some antibiotics.

    Best thing to do is to go see your GP if it's hurting that badly as it could be more serious. If you've had a UTI before and know that you need antibiotics (trimethoprim is usually the first thing a GP will try) you can get them online, which I often do. I got UTI's so often the doctor had to prescribe me some to take after sex if I felt like I had one coming on. I order online when I can't get to my GP and they're pretty good. Be careful though, it might be better to wait it out and see your GP if you're not totally sure! I hope you feel better - people never appreciate how horrible UTI's are til they get one
