About cystitis

Cystitis is a common type of urinary tract infection that occurs when the bladder becomes inflamed. It affects more women than men. Although not usually a serious health risk, it can be highly inconvenient and cause a great deal of discomfort. The main symptoms include a stinging or burning sensation when urinating, needing to urinate more frequently than normal, urine that is dark or murky in colour or has a strong smell and general pain in the lower stomach. In most cases, symptoms will subside within a few days without the need for medication. However, people who suffer from regular occurrences of cystitis may need ongoing treatment. In a small minority of cases, it can lead to a serious kidney infection that will require urgent medical attention.

What causes cystitis?

The most common cause of cystitis is a bacterial infection of the bladder. This is thought to happen when bacteria from the bowel or the skin enters into the bladder through the urethra. While it is not always clear why this happens, there are a number of factors that are thought to be responsible. For example, having sex, wiping your bottom from back to front after going to the toilet, using a contraceptive diaphragm, inserting a tampon or using a urinary catheter have all been linked to cystitis.

How does cystitis treatment work?

Trimethoprim is antibiotic tablet that is often used to treat bladder infections. It is usually prescribed when the symptoms of cystitis do not clear up on their own. The antibiotic works by killing the bacteria that is causing the bladder infection and, in most cases, the treatment is highly effective. However, it is worth noting that Trimethoprim will not prevent future episodes or recurrent cases of cystitis. It only treats bladder infections when they occur.
