A UTI can be contracted through sexual contact, but tight clothing can also be to blame, as it can trap moisture that bacteria can thrive in. Over-perfumed soaps or bubble baths can irritate the area, and waiting to urinate can cause UTIs as well.

There could be many reasons for recurrent urinary tract infections. One could be poor hygiene. However, any possible urinary tract abnormalities should be rule out if you are still young. Other possible reasons could be ureteric or bladder stones or tumours that cause the urine flow to be slow.Enlarged prostate can also contributed to this.
