You probably have cystitis. Cystitis is the inflammation of the bladder. The inflammation is caused by a bacterial infection. A bladder infection can be painful and can become a serious health problem if the infection spreads to your kidneys.

The questions which you need to ask are:

 Why are you having recurrent UTIs?

What organisms are growning?

Are you becoming antibiotic resistant?

Start drinking cranberry juice or you can try extract which is available in health food stores. Drink plenty of water. Empty your bladder when you feel the need to void. Do not try to hold it.
