Urinary tract infection for life?

Dr. Garrett Caldwell

UTI: You should never have a UTI "for life." if you feel you have a urinary tract infection you need to see your doctor to get treatment. Untreated uti's can ascend and infect the kidney. It is more common for females to get utis and it is uncommon for males to get uti's. Any person with a UTI should see their doctor immediately.
