Hello Anon,

Thanks for reaching out to Empower community!

Generally speaking, UTIs are not contagious so you couldn't catch the infection from your partner if you were to have sex now. However, if the UTI was caused by a sexually transmitted infection (STI), such as chlamydia or trichomoniasis, you would be at risk for those infections until your partner has been treated.
