What is Cystitis?

The most common type of urinary tract infection (UTI), which is characterised by the inflammation and pain of the bladder. Symptoms for this condition include a swollen bladder, pungent and dark urine, abdominal pain, and painful urination.

What causes Cystitis?

You can get cystitis when harmless bacteria that normally live in the bowel or skin finds a way into the urine through the urethra (tube from where the urine is excreted). This can happen due to:

  • Having sex
  • Inserting a tampon
  • Wiping your bottom back to front
  • Inserting a catheter
  • Using a diaphragm for contraception

Cystitis is more common in women as their urethra is shorter and closer to their anus, so it easier for the bacteria to get into the bladder.
