I am 99% sure I have an UTI, frequent painful urination, bad urine odour, painful cramps and bloating. And I was wondering if sexual activity can make UTI's happen more frequently?
Like manual, oral or intercourse.
And if so, how can I prevent it from happening again? Besides from using condoms.

Yep: during vaginal entry, bacteria can get pushed into the urinary tract. One way to help prevent this is to make sure you urinate after sexual activity.

For now, you'll want to go see a doctor so you can get your UTI treated as soon as possible.
