General & Family Physician 's  Response
Enterobacter aerogenes is one of the important nosocomial pathogens responsible for various types of infections which may including bacteremia, lower respiratory tract infections, skin and soft-tissue infections, urinary tract infections (UTIs), endocarditis, intra-abdominal infections, septic arthritis, osteomyelitis, CNS, and ophthalmic infections.
So from this you can make sure that chances for sexually transmitting this bacterial infection is very low. But since you have been diagnosed with the condition of UTI, you have to take medication for the treatment of this condition.
Thanks and take care.
