Recurrent UTI

In some cases a UTI may be recurrent, this means that they are occuring over and over again which is a problem that will need to be addressed by a doctor. Recurrent UTIs can be signs of more serious problems, or can cause serious problems if not dealt with immediately and antibiotics that are strong enough to kill the infection aren’t taken. Drinking plenty of fluids and practicing good hygeine are both very effective ways of reducing the chances of recurrent UTIs from occuring.

In addition, if sexual intercourse is most commonly the cause of a UTI, it is important that you begin to urinate soon after sex in order to flush as much bacteria from your body as possible. There is also a chronic condition known as cystitis cystica which can cause regular infections to occur in the bladder and requires special antibiotic medication, but it is a rare problem.
