Hi Anon

Great question - thank you! 

UTI's are caused by  bacteria that invade the urinary system and multiply. The infection can occur in any part of the urinary system, but usually starts in the urethra (a tube that carries the urine out of the body).

But this is not infectious so you cannot get it from a partner.
