Unfortunately it happens for some women. It is not quite clear why.

Pee right before and right after intercourse.
Drink plenty of water during the day.
Drink unsweetened cranberry juice Or take cranberry tablets.
Avoid spermicides.
Use polyurethane condoms.
Switch to a different lube ( plain normal lube, not warming or flavoured, preferably water based).
Use a position where there is not a lot of rubbing and friction over your pee hole ( and avoid foreplay that rubs that area). Normally entry from behind. If you do not orgasm from that, one of you can rub your clitoris during intercourse.
If you are allowing him to ejaculate inside you, clean yourself out after ejaculation. Do kegels on the toilet, for example, to force his semen out.

Speak to your urologist to make sure the diagnosis is correct and to find a solution.

hi
the bacteria that cause utis live in the sperm of your partners without causing them a problem. The first contact of sex including oral too (everything that have to do with a mucus ) bamm you have a uti as most of utis are caused from e-coli you only need one of them and in 12 ours you get a uti sad but true ,

your partner need to be tested a biogram of the sperm (not blood test)to show what kind of bacterias are living there and in case ,to be treated
