I have suffered with urinary tract infection (UTI) for more than a year. I have taken different types of antibiotics but to not avail. Now I stopped taking antibiotics, instead I drink herbs, and since I started using herbs I'm at least better than before. One of the herbs I have used a lot is aloe vera. I boil the leaves, wait for it to cool, then I put it in a container, and drink two times a day, morning and night.

I just finished having a UTI caused by E. coli. My pee was bright red for 12 hours. My doctor said that it was a symptom of that infection. I have trouble believing that you could have that much red blood. I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem with a UTI.
