It can be caused by abnormalities in the urine tract ( narrowing, old injuries, bladder that "dropped") or kidney stones, or a bladder that does not empty properly. If you get more than 3 infections per year you should see an urologist so that they can do some tests to determine the cause. The danger is that in the long term these infections spread to the kidney and can cause permanent kidney damage
