Why does the pain with worsen from the time I start ovulating up until my period ends, but stops after my period? Dr says may be Interstitial cystitis

Endometriosis: You did not mention where pain occurs (? pelvic).

How come I get cystitis every time I have sex?

How come I get cystitis every time I have sex?

Bad luck: This can happen to women. Mostly is a result of the fact that women have short distance for bacteria to travel to get from the external opening of the bladder to the inside of the bladder, and intercourse generally brings bacteria into closer proximity to the urethra. It's why women should always go urinate after intercourse, to try to 'flush' out the bacteria and prevent infx. Cranberry pills can. ...Read more

Every time I have intercourses with my boyfriend I get cystitis. How can I stop having this?

Get checked: Anatomically, this is always a risk ("honeymoon cystitis") but if it is occurring so regularly you need to be checked for possible vaginal infections or anatomic problems. Meanwhile, drink plenty of fluids, drink cranberry juice or take a cranberry capsule daily, and be sure to empty your bladder immediately before and after sex. Also, if applicable, you are best to avoid oral and anal sex. ...Read more

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.

Can I get interstitial cystitis from having rough sex once?

Can I get interstitial cystitis from having rough sex once?

Unlikely: For a man, one episode of rough sex may cause temporary penis symptoms, but should not cause bladder symptoms. For a woman, there can be some bruising at the urethral meatus opening, and the part of the urethra just inside the meatus, which can lead to regular UTI symptoms, but would be unlikely to cause interstitial cystitis from that one uti. The cause of interstitial cystitis is not known. ...Read more
