Estrogen deficiency could be a factor if you are already in post menopause. You need to hydrate well for making at least 2 liters of urine a day and practice good hygiene for the genitourinary area (same for your sex partner if you are still sexually active). You should consult your primary care doctor or GYN doc for local estrogen therapy if those prophylactic measures are not helpful.

First it is to be confirmed that your symptoms are that of actual infection by urine culture. even if that is so then you need further investigation by a Urologist. In the meantime drink water empty your bladder frequently. Keep the area clean and avoid constipation. Hope you feel better

A number of reasons. Bacteria in urine, diabetes, sexual activity, and incontinence. See a Urologist for exam and treatment now.

It is important to confirm that your symptoms are actually UTIs(bacterial urinary tract infections)as opposed to symptoms from irritation of the urethra(tube that goes from bladder to outside).If actual infections,could be from sexual activity,wiping from back to front,letting stool bacteria into urinary tract),and other irritation increasing bacteria to area.Please see your gyn or primary MD.
