In brief: No

Women do get bladder infections more often than men do.
The tube that leads the urine from the ladder to the outside is shorter in women than in men and most UTI's in women are believed to be ascending from the outside in. There is no reason to believe that because you had a prior bout of sepsis you are at higher risk for future bladder infections.
