Hello,Recurrent UTI are quite common,especially in women.To avoid drink plenty of water,and you must not hold urine for too long and void at the earliest.Short course of antibiotic at the beginning of symptoms is a statergy adopted.In higly persistent infections certain tests like cystoscopy,IVP may be recommended.Best wishes.
