What is it?
It is inflammation of the urinary bladder, often caused by an intestinal bacterium that enters the urinary tract. Frequent sexual intercourse can encourage the entry of these bacteria, but there are also forms of cystitis not associated with a bacterial infection.
How to prevent it?
- Drink water, herbal teas (mallow and calendula) and juices such as blueberry juices a lot.
- Diet rich in fruit and vegetables.
- For intimate hygiene use only water or soap with neutral pH. Clean from the vagina to the anus.
- Pee after each sexual relationship.
- Change the condom when switching from anal to vaginal intercourse. Avoid vaginal masturbation if your fingers touched the anus.
- Wear cotton underwear.
What are the symptoms ?
- Pain and burning while peeing.
- Frequent urge to urinate.
- Change in the color and smell of urine (cloudy and foul-smelling).
- Blood in the urine.
How is it treated?
It is not always necessary to resort to antibiotic therapy. Most cystitis episodes resolve spontaneously by drinking a lot of water (the expulsion of urine gradually eliminates the germs).
You can use some substances such as D-mannose and other very effective natural remedies such as cranberry and vitamin C.
