Our expert says:
If you are keeping it clean under the foreskin and wash before you have sex there is no reason to have a circumcision and it won't make a difference in the incidence of infections your wife gets. Recurrent urinary infections in women can be due to a stone lodged in the tract somewhere ( so did she have a sonar of the kidneys and bladder?) or urine lying in the bladder because the bladder does not empty properly ( so did she have a urinary systogram to see if the bladder empty properly) or due to a narrowed urethra ( so did they look into the bladder with a systoscopy?)
It may help to take preventative cranberry tablets or juice, or to use a preventative antisepticum like Furadantin as chronic medication. She should take probiotics daily to keep the level of unhealthy bacteria in the gut down. If she is in her menopause she should also use a bit of esterogen cream on the urethra opening.
