E- coli bacteria lives in colon usually.  These bacteria can cause urinary tract infections especially cystitis or infection of urinary bladder. E. Coli bacteria are not transmitted sexually. Women are more prone to have urinary tract infections than men. These bacteria enter in urethra and then grow and travel  to  bladder to cause infection.
Common source of transmission of E-coli bacteria is from anus to urethra. Usually people get E-coli infection more frequently who wash first anus after defecation and then penis/vagina.
You can prevent this infection by washing first penis and vagina after urination and then anus after passing stool.
