Our expert says:
No I think there is something in the urinary tract that causes the infection - either your bladder is not emptying properly or you have a kidney stone or some other physical problem. Your doctor needs to refer you to an urologist for an examination under anaesthetic with a "scope" or fibre optic camera. More that 3 infections in a 12 month period is an indication for specialist examination.
