Delayed urination, water and cranberry juice ineffective

Hi, I m a 15 year old girl. I ve been suffering from chronic UTIs since I was ~7 because when I was little I held in my urine. Now, my bladder does not always release everything so I have to stay in the washroom for a bit longer and relax . But that isn t my quesiton. My question is, is there a way I can completely rid myself of this infection pest? I ve been to multiple doctors and gotten a catheter w/ camera scan twice now, with nothing turned up but what I mentioned before. I ve been drinking PLENTY of water, and even tried a little cranberry juice. I ve also been prescribed a few pills that do nothing. Is there a way to rid myself of it once and for all, or do I just need to keep doing what I m doing and relax?
