Repeat bladder infections depends on the age and sex of the person who has the infection.
If it is a repeat infection it could be due to not having taken the complete regimen of antibiotics prescribed or because the infection is resistant to the antibiotics prescribed. Another cause of repeated infections is obstruction of the flow of urine. In the former, it is important to check for stds as well.
