I have had frequent bladder infections

I have had frequent bladder infections since i was little. I was put through MRIs, and body scans several times. They were trying to figure out if my uterus was tilted, and it's not. I read that typically women get UTI's once in there lifetime. Maybe a bit more. But i usually get 2-3 each year. And they are severe bladder infections. What's going on?

Hi Nikki,
Since you have already gone through lot of investigations and they appear to lead nowhere. I suggest you drink plenty of water and take care of your hygiene and avoid unnecessary medication. That should help!

Frequent UTI is not that uncommon among women. My mom had it thrice last year. The most common often are lack of hydration, lack of hygiene and inappropriate use of medications than structural problems.  Drink plenty of fluids and taking  care of hygeine will solve the issue.  So when you have solution to the problem, why worry on the cause....
