I couldn't work out how rear end bacteria could be getting into the urethra. Noone in their right mind cleans or dries back to front - how stupid do the doctors think we women are? If you're scrupulous about towels and flannels as well as knickers, that leaves sex and 'splashback incidents' as the only paths for the bacteria to travel along. Applying antibacterial hand gel should be an essential part of foreplay - and when you go for a No.2, hold a piece of loo roll over your urethra to prevent splashback.
People with catheters are, I've heard, constantly plagued by UTIs.
