Can uti be acquired if my partner indulges in sex with other women aside from me?

Not UTI but STD: Utis are not transmitted during sex. Uti 's after sex are result of bacteria at your urinary meatus (opening) being milked up to the bladder during sex. Bacteria then multiply in the bladder causing a uti, hence advice to urinate after sex. Your partner, indulging with other women, is at risk for std and thus placing you at risk. Perhaps you should consider finding a new partner!
