In brief: Unlikely
Recurrent utis are unlikely to affect your immune system. On the contrary, an impaired immune system is one of possible causes of recurrent utis.
Constipation, urinary retention and sub-optimal toilet hygiene and large post-void residual can all be contributing causes of recurrent utis.
