In brief: Honeymoon cystitis

Intercourse causes some of a woman's own bacteria to be pushed into her urethra were the can enter the bladder and multiply and cause cystitis.
Some women have particularly "sticky" bladder epithelial cells which actually attract bacteria and allow them to adhere rather then be washed with urination.
