Hi and welcome to ehealthforum!
Women are especially prone to UTIs for reasons that are not yet well understood (woman's urethra is short, allowing bacteria quick access to the bladder, also, a woman's urethral opening is near sources of bacteria from the anus and vagina).

About 75 percent of the time, urinary tract infections in women are triggered by sexual intercourse. Moreover, intercourse promotes UTIs because the back-and-forth motion literally massages bacteria from your anus into the bladder.
Women with vaginal tissue that is drier, scarred, or more easily irritated or irritated because of lot of sex in a short period and additional trauma to the tissues (size of the penis) are more prone to get the UTI after the intercourse.

What kind of prevention you are using during sexual intercourse?
Has she been tested for the cause (tests to detect certain infect) of her UTI's?
