What are the causes of cystitis?

Bacteria. Cystitis is a medical term for bladder/urinary tract inflamation. It is usually caused byan infection from e. Coli, a bacteria that we normally have in our GI tract. It is more common in women due to how close the urinary tract is to the anal area. E. Coli may be introduced to the urinary system by wiping towards the front after going to the bathroom or during sex. See your pcp.
Many. Not urimating after sex so bacteria can multiply in bladder, toilet hygiene by not wiping front to back or keeping thighs clamped toether whilst urinating rather then spreading thighs to avoid urine trapping behind labia, bubble-bath or tub baths rather than showers, thong +/or non-cotton underwear, constipation, cathetrization, bladder stones.
Infection/irritation. Cystitis is an inflammation of the bladder. It is usually due to an acute bacterial infection. There are other causes due to inflammatory responses not able to be discussed here. Force fluids, try otc bladder anesthetics (azo-standard) and watch. If you don't resolve quickly, get seen and treated. Fever, chills, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain are warning signs for immediate attention.
Cystitis Etiology. Cystitis is usually caused by pathogenic bacteria invading the urethral tract, and ascending into the bladder. Cystitis in a small minority of instances may be caused by anatomical/structural deviations from the normal anatomy. Symptoms of cystitis require rapid attention by your family medicine specialist or internal medicine specialist.
