In brief: Several reasons
Urinary tract infections in women are more likely to occur with tight clothing, wiping from back to front, taking baths vs.
Showers, and sexual activity. Consult with your family doctor, internist or urologist to see if something else is occurring.

In brief: Menopause?
Agree with dr c. Age can also be a factor. If you're menopausal, you may also have uti's more often.
Talk with your doc about your (many) choices.
