In brief: Yes

Treat latest UTI with correct antibiotics, then take preventative measures to reduce liklihood of further utis.
Empty bladder after sex, shower rather than bathe, avoid thong or non-cotton underwear. Drink plenty of water & urinate 2-3 hrly, do not withhold & spread thighs with urination, avoiding urine trapping by labia. Control constipation. May need antibiotic prophylaxis or just after sex.
