No: If you truly have medically proven recurrent utis multiple times/year, you need to undergo further evaluation. Make sure you have actually been tested and not just treated based on symptoms. Other issues may present with symptoms like a UTI such as yeast or vaginitis. Consider evaluation by a urologist for kidney, ureteral, or bladder abnormalities.
