Boil followed by mental cycle and UTI?


Q: I've been getting a boil almost every month for the past 6 months. It always follows the same pattern:
1. I get a UTI,
2. Then I get my period (almost exactly the same day I finish my antibiotic for the UTI)
3. My period ends and then I literally get a boil the very next day.
Here are the places where the boils occurred
1. Stomach (right side parallel with belly button)
2. Over my right Hip bone
3. Base of my spine (no where near my butt crack)
4. Left buttock cheek (this has been by far the most painful)

I have hypothyroidism.
I am hygienic.
I am thin and athletic.
