Dear friend, welcome to HCM.
it is clearly pointing to UTI. recurrent UTI may be due to resistant organisms, though this culture was negative.
you should rule out urinary tract pathology by an ultrasound KUB, repeat urine routine and culture, urine AFB by concentration method, other hunts for TB , if mantoux was significant positive. also a blood culture.
culture negative UTI is common and you should take good supervised antibiotic regimen and ancillary treatment for UTI.
I would also advise a gynaec. check up for close linked problems./ gynaec infections mimicking UTI.

I think I have clarified your query.
take care and keep me posted.
