Hi,

So UTIs are not generally contagious since UTIs are bacterial infections and tend to affect the uretha bladder and kidneys, but if the UTI was a symptom of an STI than you could contract that infection. If your relationship is monogamous, and you've both tested negative for STIs this would not be a problem though. It's usually advised your partner abstain from sex for a few weeks so that you don't aggravate it. Hope this helps!
