Can a man be a carrier of a bladder infection? Like cystitis, interstitial cystitis, or urinary tract infection?

In brief: Not really

The only role a male has in female cystitis is by the mechanical aspect of sexual intercourse or possibly cunnilingus.
He is not transmitting the organism from his body to hers but facilitating the transmission of her own bacteria into her bladder.
