Do Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) return?
Yes, sometimes they do come back.
Most women who are healthy don’t see an UTI return. But, one out of ever 5 women who has had a UTI will contract another one.
Unfortunately, some women have more than three UTIs in one year.Â Men don’t contract UTIs as frequently in the first place, but those who do,Â are more likely to have repeat infections.
Having diabetes or any other problem that makes it difficult to urinate frequently mayÂ contribute toÂ repeat urinary tract infections.
It is not good to share medicine with someone else. That can reduce the effectiveness of the medicine for both people and may help the bacteria to become resistant to it in the future.
Since bacteria can hide deep in the prostate tissue, men may
need to treat UTI for a longer period of time.
