In brief: No

Exposure is exposure.
The only way to worsen it would be to move from anal to vaginal sex without properly cleaning.

In brief: Only after anal sex

Most common cause of getting a bacterial urinary infection is bacteria from around the urethral or vaginal opening moving up the urthra by the pumping action within vagina situated just under the ur increaseethra.
Uti can be avoided by emptying bladder after sex. Changing positions during vaginal sex does not increase vaginal infections or utis.
