Chronic UTI: You need a full evaluation by a urologist to seek out the source of these infections. Possibiliites include a kidney stone. Some women end of going on a long term antibiotic if they are at risk.

Verify UTI diagnosis: Most important thing is to verify that you have been truly having recurrent utis as there are other urinary conditions that can mimic the same symptoms. Though a urinalysis can be suggestive, often misleading. Urine culture required to verify. If DX of recurrent UTI is correct, recommend urological evaluation to determine cause. Daily low-dose antibiotic for 6-12 weeks a common treatment option.

Further evaluation: Can be a complicated issue. You need to discuss the reasons with a urologist. The bacteria involved may be difficult to treat, or there are structural urinary tract problems. Sometimes longer courses of suppressive antibiotics are helpful.
