Urologist 's  Response

Welcome to HCM and thanks for your query.
This is suggestive of UTI and she needs to give a mid stream urine sample for culture test.
Till the results are out, she needs empirical antibiotics and then definitive antibiotics for a cure.
If UTI is repeated, then she needs detailed evaluation of the urinary tract to look for block or stones.
Wishing her best health
