Hi and welcome to XXXXXXX Thank you for tour query.

you should not be worried.in most cases it doesn't cause any problem. Bacterias from feces are commonly in contact with our genitals during baths, or through undewear and it doesn't cause any infection. It is true that uroinfections are caused by Escherichia coli, but it must be specific type of uropathogenic e.coli to be able to cause infection.
Also,there are various bacterias normally found in vagina and noone of it doesn't cause infection.
but if you start to notice burning pain while urinating and penile rash you should visit doctor. Wish you good health. Regards. If you have questions i ll be glad to help
