UTI - not contagious: UTI's are not contagious and cannot be spread through sexual contact. If you are treated for your UTI and you have continued symptoms, if you've had sexual contact then you should consider asking your doctor for testing for gonorrhea and chlamydia, which can be spread sexually.

Yes/not usually: A person may not recognize any symptoms when they have a UTI, it is uncommon but it happens. Most Uti's are not passed from person to person like a strep throat or STD.
