In brief: Several things

The three most common causes are baths, thongs, and intercourse (make sure you urinate afterward).
Other things that can contributed are hygeine (you should wipe front to back). If none of these are issues, ask your doctor to culture the urine to identify the exact bacteria - this may give some clues as to where it is coming from.

In brief: Also

For older women who suffer from recurrent UTI problems it may be due to vaginal atrophy.
See a provider for exam. If this is the issue, hormone cream may be an effective therapy given no contrandications.
