UTI - Sexually transmitted e-Coli?

I have recurring UTI' s and the last tests showed positive for e-Coli. I ONLY get the UTI after intercourse so there is definitely a link. Can he be passing it on to me &  how do we cure it?

No, it is not sexually transmitted. Sex irritates the bladder due to the friction involved, so try emptying your bladder before and after.
