Causes of cystitis

Cystitis in women can be caused by an infection that enters the bladder area from the urethra or kidneys. One of the common causes of the disease is too active sex life.

Inflammatory processes can be triggered by a malfunction of the immune system, malnutrition and stress. Changes in hormonal levels during menopause often lead to problems with urination. Sometimes toxins, bladder stones, and even allergies can cause the disease.

Symptoms of cystitis in women

Symptoms of the disease are very pronounced and develop quickly enough. The disease begins with a general malaise, fever, frequent urge to urinate, sometimes even urinary incontinence appears.

The course of the disease is accompanied by aching, dull pain in the pelvis, in the pubic area, painful sensations during urination. Urine is cloudy, with mucus, flakes, sometimes with blood.

Over time, the symptoms of cystitis disappear for a while, and then reappear. If left untreated, the disease will progress to a chronic form. At this stage, the signs of the disease become softer and less noticeable. A neglected disease is fraught with serious consequences in the female body.
