hi michele, some females can be prone to repeated UTI episodes even without any obvious underlying cause. however, if episodes are frequent or the infection involves kidneys, a thorough evaluation for a cause is needed. Your BP and kidney funtion (creatinine
) also needs to be checked. You will also need long term antibiotic prohylaxis (course of low dose antibiotic tabs for 6 months or more) to prevent repeated infections. Cranberry extracts are now available in tablet form, these decrease chances of repeated infection. Consult a urologist
. good luck.
