Cystitis

CystitisCystitis is a medical term for inflammation of the bladder. A range of infections and irritations cause cystitis in the lower urinary system.

Cystitis is a very common medical condition. It can affect women of any age but is more common in women who are pregnant, sexually active or women who are post-menopausal. Cystitis can also be caused by irritation or damage from sexual intercourse.

Between twenty and forty per cent of women will have cystitis during their lifetime. Some women will experience it again and again (known as recurrent cystitis).

It can be very uncomfortable, embarrassing and painful, causing symptoms such as pains when you pass urine and an urgency to urinate all the time to name a few. Lower abdomen pains are also a very serious health issue, if the infection is left untreated and spreads to your kidneys.
