Cystitis

Cystitis | Bladder Infection | NYC Pelvic DoctorWhile you might think cystitis has something to do with cysts, given the root of the term, you’d be wrong in this case. Cystitis refers to the medical condition when your bladder is inflamed, swollen and tender. If you have an infected bladder, you may experience other symptoms besides pain in your lower abdomen, such as:

  • Discomfort or uncomfortable pressure in your bladder
  • A constant need to urinate, but you’re only able to urinate a little bit each time
  • A painful burning when you urinate
  • Blood in your urine
  • Translucent and/or concentrated (smelly) urine
  • Possible fever

Cystitis is a treatable condition, and it’s recommended that you visit your NYC gynecologist or OBGYN specialists. If you don’t have it treated, cystitis can become more serious. Besides suffering from increasingly worse symptoms, the infection can spread to your kidneys, where it’s more difficult to treat. If you experience any of the following symptoms of an infected kidney, seek medical attention:

  • Pain from the area of your kidneys, which are in the back of your upper abdomen
  • Running a high temperature
  • Feeling nauseous or even vomiting

All symptoms should be evaluated with a thorough consultation and examination by your gynecologist for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan to exclude any underlying serious condition.

What Causes Cystitis

Often, the cause of cystitis is a bacterial infection — a urinary tract infection or UTI — that reaches your bladder. UTIs are fairly common in women, since your vagina naturally contains a variety of bacteria. Sexual intercourse, therefore, sometimes causes a UTI. But obviously, that’s not the only way to get a UTI, since women who aren’t sexually inactive still can suffer from an infected urinary tract.  Bacteria can migrate from the rectum to the urethra and then to the bladder.

The pain and inflammation of cystitis can result from several other conditions as well, although these causes are less common:

  • Continual use of irritation-causing products, such as chemical-based feminine hygiene products and contraceptives
  • An allergic reaction to some feminine hygiene products, contraceptives or even bubble bath
  • As a reaction to certain medications, especially chemotherapy drugs
  • Using a catheter for a long time
  • Chronic inflammation of your bladder (Interstitial Cystitis)
  • From radiation therapy to treat cancer
  • Other medical conditions — such as kidney stones or diabetes — can cause cystitis as a complication
