I have irregular sexual life. After sex begins acute cystitis. And this year cystitis recurs for the third time. What should I do?
Recurrent UTI's: Females may can have UTI's after sex. If you do have intercourse, try to urinate soon as possible after it. Speak to a urologist (u) to see if you have some problem(s) with your urinary tract (ut) causing you to have frequent uti's. These are rather more frequent in females and if the u finds a problem in your ut on examination and relieves it, you may be able to prevent a recurrence of a uti.See 2 more doctor answers
Is an infection in my nose related to a previous diagnosis of and treatment for acute cystitis? Could both be caused by yeast overgrowth?
Very unlikely: I have never seen a yeast infection in the nose but have seen sinusitis caused by a different sort of fungus, aspergillus. You can be relatively sure it has nothing to do with treatment of your bladder infection. You should have a culture done to see what is causing the nasal infection. There is a slight risk of lymphatic spread of infection from your nose into your brain.
I'm on meds but i really think its more serious i think its hemorrhagic cystitis because of my symptoms , can this be treated?
Meds for what?: Hemorrhagic cystitis can be due to either bacterial or viral infection of bladder. Some utis are associated with blood in urine ; usually not serious. Blood in urine (hematuria) can be a side effect of medication. However, without UTI needs to be investigated to rule out malignancy. Hemorrhagic cystitis responds to appropriate antibiotics just like non-hemorrhagic cystitis ; thus not very serious.
Cystitis: Cystitis is marked by urinary frequency and urgency, as well as lower abdominal cramping pain. Although cystoscope usually shows lesions on the bladder wall, there is no real evidence that cystitis is an infection. Under those circumstances, antibiotics may not be necessary and/or useful. However, antibiotics are often prescribed if there is a presumption of infection. Seek advice from a urologist.
Antibiotics: Acute cystitis will respond to antibiotics that have cover most common urinary pathogens.See 1 more doctor answer
Painful Bladder: Ic is a condition that has multiple symptoms. Most common symptoms are frequent urination, urinary urgency and pain in the bladder and pelvic area. There is no definitive test to diagnose ic, but there is usually inflammation of the lining of the bladder that produces the symptoms. Treatments include dietary changes, medication, and possibly bladder instillation of various compounds.
Pain relief: If you are talking about the symptoms of painful urination, you can purchase Azo over the counter at your local pharmacy. This is the pyridium (phenazopyridine) equivalent to help with painful urination. If you truly have a bacterial cystitis, the recommendations are to have it treated with antibiotics. If you are having numerous UTIs, the recommendation is further evaluation from a urologist to see why.
