Does having sex with an uncircumcised penis increase my chances of getting a uti?

In brief: Sex does it

Sexual intercourse (genito/vaginal, oral/vaginal) can increase risk for uti, especially if using diaphragm, dry vaginal mucosa, various positions, etc.
Drink plenty of fluids, urinate after sex. Whether the penis is circumcised or not is less a factor; can happen with dildos, vibrators too.
