Transferring uti through same sex intercourse with oral sex

Patient

Q: Can females transfer uti with same sex relations during oral sex.. I always wipe front to back but have recently experimented with anal sex is this probably the cause

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com

I understand your concern.
Yes, anal sex has higher chances of transmitting UTIs than other forms of intercourse or oral sex. The bacteria responsible for UTI is E. Coli in most cases, which is a gut-based bacteria.

However, if you talk purely about oral sex, there are very minimal chances of transmitting UTI.
You can get the urine culture done to find out the exact organism and treatment can be taken accordingly.

Hope this was helpful.
Regards.
