In brief: Possibly

Any sexual activity can cause the possibility of bacteria getting pushed up the urethra into the bladder thus causing a urinary tract infection.
Prevention includes drinking enough fluids until the urine is clear, urinating after sexual activity,proper cleaning hygiene, 8oz cranberry juice daily ( but in some people can worsen urinary tract symptoms), probiotics, d-mannose supplements,
