Can a UTI reoccur after dry humping a day after finishing antibiotics?

I have been experiencing reoccuring UTIs for many months now. They have all been triggered by sexual intercourse. The sex has typically been painful with burning sensations. Immediately following sex, I will have all the symptoms again of a UTI again..pressure on the bladder, stinging during urination. When I visit the doctor, my urine specimal tests positive for bladder infection and I am given antibiotics (Bactrim, Cipro..etc). The antibiotics will help for the meantime but the minute I have sex again, the condition returns as if it never left. This evening I engaged in dry humping with my boyfriend rather than intercourse (to avoid irritation) and already I feel like another UTI is coming on..does this make sense or am I being completly paranooid? Nothing entered my utethra so is it possible a UTI could be created from just external rubbing with clothes on?
My gynocologist recommends I see a urologist at some point soon.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
