frequent utis

I've suffered from frequent uti's for about 3 years now, about 4 a year & have frequent abdominal pain & discomfort in my vaginal area.. My doctor said "some woman just have frequent uti's" but I don't understand becuase I am a very clean person & take all the nesessary percautions & have had paps & other tests & everything comes back negitive.. i dont understand! Lately within a few months now I've also have had ichy & soreness around my anal area. What could be going on? Please help

While it is true that some women have frequent UTI's, you should be worked up to rule out any treatable causes.  This can be done by a urologist or urogynecologist.  Once this is completed often suppression therapy with daily antibiotics is necessary.  Regarding you complaint of soreness and itching, an examination would be necessary to determine the cause.  J.
