In brief: Bacteria

I think you are referring to bladder infection or "cystitis".
Bacteria can go up the urethra,which is short & straight in females,into the bladder. Always empty your bladder by urinating after sex.Always wipe from the front backward after urinating and not the other way so bacteria from the rectal area are not brought forward.Hope this answers.
