What is Cystitis?

Cystitis is inflammation of the lining of the bladder. Cystitis is usually caused by a bacterial infection from a variety of sources. It can affect women and men, but is much more common in women. Although cystitis may be related to sex, it is not a sexually transmitted infection.

Cystitis is more common in pregnant women, sexually active women and women after the menopause, but it can happen at any age.

Around one in three women will have at least one bout of cystitis before they are 24 years old.

Cystitis is less common and a potentially more serious condition for men. This online service can only be used for the treatment of female patients.

  • Urine which is dark, cloudy, or contains traces of blood
