In brief: No
No reason. Hope you are on antibiotics for your sake, and that sex isn't unpleasant before the UTI is under control.

In brief: UTI
Bladder infection per se is not transmitted to others.
You should abstain from intercourse during treatment and for up to 1 week after completion of anitbiotics. Drink plenty of water. Std can be transmitted to others. Males because of a longer urethra rarely get UTI (bladder infeciton).
