In brief: UTI after sex

Bacteria reach bladder during intercourse ; multiply if bladder not emptied after sex.
Bacteria then make their way up to kidney ; cause pyelitis or pyelonephritis. Symptoms are urinary frequency, malodor and burning on urination, also back pain on affected side ; possibly fever ; chills.
