Delayed periods, white discharge, frequent UTIs. Do I have to be worried about a kidney infection? Chances of pregnancy?

I have tons of problems with my period, it is always late, sometimes more than a week/two weeks late. I am sexually active, I have been for a steady year now, and my partner & I rarely use protection. Every month, I have a different problem. Sometimes white, stringy discharge will come out, (assuming I m ovulating, but it happens 2 weeks before my period is scheduled to start), sometimes it will be completely clear discharge. I also have a lot of UTI s. I have been to the doctor and the only thing they can tell me is I have a UTI or kidney infection . They treat me for it, and it comes right back the next month. Is there a chance it could be serious, or is this just normal? Could I be infertile?

Nephrologist 's  Response
Hello. Recurrent urinary tract infections can lead to kidney problems in long run. Hence it needs proper investigations. You should consult nephrologist (kidney specialist) for further evaluation. You also need thorough gynaecological evaluation for your irregular periods. Take care.
