In brief: Reproductive system

Probably not as long as you are treated properly and each infection is cured.

In brief: Unlikely

Fortunately the female urinary & genital tracts are quite separate.
Should do something about repeated utis: urinate to empty bladder after sex, shower rather than bathe, no bubble bath, avoid synthetic underwear & thongs, avoid/treat constipation, separate knees widely with urination. Drink plenty of water & urinate regularly. See your dr. If utis remain sex related for ?Macrodantin (nitrofurantoin) after sex.
