In brief: Many possible

Leaving bladder full without urinating after sex, bubble-bath +/or tub baths rather than taking showers, thongs +/or non-cotton underwear, sub-optimal toilet hygiene by not wiping front to back or keeping thighs together + trapping urine in vagina with voiding, chronic constipation, menopause, bladder stone/s and poor nutrition.

In brief: Urinary stasis

Abnormalities in the urinary tract affecting urine flow are the most frequent causes.
Examples are: congenital lesions such as vesicoureteral reflux, ureteropelvic junction obstruction; neurogenic bladder; kidney stone; benign prostate hypertrophy. Sexual activity is an important triggering factor for bladder infection especially in women.
