There are numerous ways. But here's one if you are female. When you have a bacteria infection in your *private area* and if you do not treat it right, that could lead to kidney infections.
Kidney infections usually occur through an infection that has spread through the urinary tract, such as the urethra and the bladder.

To help reduce the chances of a urinary tract infection, urinate shortly after sexual intercourse and keep the area around the opening to the urethra clean by washing at least daily, especially after defecating and before sexual intercourse.
