Because our internal plumbing is so close it's just common for some women to get UTIs after sex...it's really not uncommon.
Be sure your husband washes his hands before and make sure you urinate after.
Since your testing has been fine I would work with your doctor to find an antibiotic you can take after sex that actually does help you.
Also make sure your doctor is doing a culture of the urine to make sure the correct medication is being used.
If you are treated for a UTI it's also important to have the urine rechecked a couple of days after you have finished the medication to make sure the UTI is gone.
