In brief: UTI

Uti is seldom caused by sexual activity anywhere, and the shower is no different.
Women may get slight swelling of the urethra (tube from bladder out), and this physiologic obstruction may promote cystitis, and this is often termed "honeymoon cystitis" because it most commonly occurs during first sexual episodes.
