Cystitis is a urinary tract infection of the bladder that causes a frequent need to urinate and often an uncomfortable burning sensation during urination (dysuria). Other common bladder infection symptoms include a need to urinate often and pain in the lower abdomen.
The most commom cause of a bladder infection such as cystitis is infection from intestinal bacteria. A urinary tract infection can be caused by poor toilet hygiene, a short urethra, pregnancy or an increase in sexual activity.
As a preventative measure it can be helpful for women prone to cystitis to drink cranberry juice or take a cranberry supplement daily as this can be a beneficial treatment for cystitis. Also, maintaining good intimate hygiene is advised. For more information please refer to our Cystitis FAQs page.
