So sorry you’re experiencing this along with your infestation.
As far as a Candida/UTI connection is concerned; you might say that a UTI is a by-product of a Candida infestation, and lots of people contract multiple UTI’s during their infestation.
The fact is that certain yeast can cause a UTI to occur, and the most common UTI-causing yeasts are Candida albicans and Candida glabrata.
I would start taking 1000 mg of vitamin C 4 or 5 times a day as this can help significantly with the infection (start with 2000 mg the first day and work your way up to a higher amount). Also continue taking the cranberry capsules.
May I ask if you took fluconazole at time during your infestation or if you’re taking it now?
