What is Cystitis

Cystitis is an inflammation of the urinary bladder. In most cases, cystitis is caused due to urinary tract infection (UTI), but in cystitis, only the bladder is affected. Apart from infection, certain medicines and hygiene products can also cause inflammation. Thus, the treatment of cystitis is solely dependent on the underlying cause.

Cystitis is the most acute and has a sudden onset. However, interstitial cystitis cases are long-term or chronic. Cystitis can affect anyone, but it is more prevalent in women between the ages of 20 and 50 years.

Causes of Cystitis

The primary cause of cystitis is a bacterial infection with E. Coli. The factors that may increase the vulnerability to cystitis infections are:

  • Women are more susceptible to cystitis infection as they have a shorter urethra and the opening of the urethra is closer to the anus, which may increase the chances of infections from the gastrointestinal tract.
  • High sexual activities in women may increase the chances of cystitis.
  • The use of mechanical barriers as contraceptive methods may also make a woman prone to cystitis infection.
  • Retention of urine in cases of an enlarged prostate or urinary bladder stones can also cause cystitis.
  • Using urinary catheters in the long term may increase the chances of developing cystitis.

Symptoms of Cystitis

The following are the symptoms of cystitis:

  • The frequent urge for micturition
  • An urge to urinate immediately after emptying the bladder
  • Blood in urination
  • Strong-smelling or cloudy urine
  • A feeling of pressure or fullness of the bladder
  • A low-grade fever especially when it is in combination with UTI
  • Cramps in the abdomen and back
  • Pain during sexual intercourse

Cystitis should be addressed as early as detected as the bladder infection may spread to your kidneys and become a serious health issue. In addition to the above-mentioned symptoms, the symptoms of a kidney infection include nausea, vomiting, chills, pain in the back or side, fever, and blood in urination.

We suggest you consult a doctor if you think you have any of the above symptoms. Visit for more details

Types of Cystitis

Cystitis can be categorized into acute and interstitial cystitis. Acute cystitis occurs when cystitis develops suddenly. Interstitial cystitis (IC) is a long-term or chronic case of cystitis that may affect multiple tissue layers of the bladder. The type of cystitis depends upon the underlying cause. The following are the types of cystitis:

Bacterial Cystitis

Bacterial cystitis is mostly an infection with E. Coli. It occurs when the bacteria enter your bladder or urethra, causing infection. It occurs when the normally growing bacteria in your body become imbalanced. The infection may lead to inflammation in the bladder or cystitis.

You must get bacterial cystitis treated at the earliest as it may spread to your kidneys causing a serious health issue.

Radiation Cystitis

Radiation therapy is used to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors, but it can also damage the healthy tissues and cells of the body. Radiation therapy on the pelvic area can cause inflammation of the bladder or cystitis.

Chemical Cystitis

Some hygiene products that contain chemicals may irritate your bladder. A few of these products causing cystitis include:

  • Female hygiene sprays
  • Spermicidal jellies
  • Chemicals included in a bubble bath
  • Using diaphragm with spermicide

Drug-induced Cystitis

Certain medicines may cause inflammation of the bladder. Medicines after consumption, pass through the body and are ultimately thrown out through the urinary system of the body. However, there are certain medicines such as the chemotherapy drugs cyclophosphamide and ifosfamide, that can irritate your bladder while they exit the body.

Foreign body Cystitis

The use of foreign bodies such as catheters can increase the risk of bacterial infection, and damage tissues of the urinary tract. There may be inflammation due to bacterial infection and damaged tissues.

Cystitis Associated With Other Conditions

In some cases, cystitis may occur as a symptom of other medical conditions like kidney stones, enlarged prostate, HIV, diabetes, and spinal injuries.

Who is at risk for developing Cystitis?

Cystitis can affect both men and women, but it is more common in women as they have a shorter urethra. Risk factors for developing cystitis in women are:

  • 20 to 50 years, sexually active women
  • Females who are pregnant
  • Using irritating personal hygiene products
  • Using diaphragms with spermicide
  • Menopausal women

Men can also be at a high risk of developing cystitis if they have an enlarged prostate gland as a result of urine retention in the bladder. Risk factors that are common to both men and women include:

  • Frequent urinary tract infection
  • Chemotherapy
  • Radiation therapy
  • Kidney stones
  • Diabetes
  • HIV
  • Spinal injuries
  • Use of catheter

Diagnosis of Cystitis

Cystitis can be diagnosed on the basis of your medical history, signs and symptoms, and the above clinical tests:

– Microscopic examination of urine to detect bacteria, pus cells, or blood.
– Cystoscopy for confirming the diagnosis.
– A urine culture may help to determine the type of bacteria in the urine and antibiotics.

Treatments for Cystitis

Conventional Treatment for Cystitis

Antibiotics are the ones that are prescribed for Cystitis. These drugs help to relieve cystitis and infection. However, these drugs may cause a lot of side effects in the form of allergic reactions like nausea, vomiting, itching, rashes, hay fever, and hives. These medicines do not cure cystitis, they merely suppress the symptoms for a temporary period. These medicines have serious side-effects and thus they need to be administered very cautiously.

Biogetica combines all the above natural ingredients to target cystitis as a whole and from its root cause so that effects can be long-lasting. All of our products have traditional use of clinical analysis from the natural system of medicine such as Homeopathy, supplements, and Ayurveda and are supported by modern research and trials.
