In brief: See below

Not any more likely than a man not on immunosuppression medication.

In brief: Not really

An acute urinary tract infection can occur in females after sexual activity.
It has little to do with the male partner taking immunosuppressive drugs.

In brief: Yes

Vaginal intercourse is a risk factor for the development of utis in all women because of the close proximity between the urethral opening and the anus.
Women can decrease this risk by practicing good hygeine and urinating as soon as possible after sex. Having an immunosuppressed partner, however, does not confer any additional risk.
