In brief: Anatomy

The bladder's opening, or urethra, and the vagina are in close proximity.
Intercourse may force bacteria into the bladder. However, endometriosis may often feel like recurrent uti's . Check with your physician. True recurrent UTI may be suppressed by longterm low dose antibiotics.
