Chronic Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) is a chronic infection of the bladder, urethra, or kidney that does not respond to initial antibiotic therapy or continually recurs after being treated. This is far more common in women than in men.
Chronic and recurrent UTIs can usually be successfully treated with a combination of appropriate antibiotic therapy and lifestyle changes. If you experience 4 or more UTIs in one year, a complete evaluation is recommended.
At the FW Center for Pelvic Medicine Elizabeth and Dr. England have developed a protocol to determine possible causes for your recurrent UTI’s, which range from kidney and bladder abscesses, to renal stones, and chronic inflammatory conditions of the bladder.
Bladder prolapse or pelvic floor weakness can inhibit complete bladder emptying and result in chronic bladder infections.
