There is this kind of cystitis. Sometimes this disease sex life becomes a real torture. But if at the time when the first occurrence of the disease it has been properly treated, the woman for him would have been long forgotten. The truth is on one condition: if it complied with all the rules of personal hygiene.
Why cystitis begins after sex
Cystitis after sex - is a disease of women, as they have short and wide urethra and infection from the rectum or external genitalia may fall along the urethra into the bladder. This path is called an ascending infection. The risk of infection increases with rising anomalies location opening of the urethra (the hole located very low or even in the wall of the vagina). In men, the infection rising through the bladder does not get, because they have a long, narrow and winding the urethra (urethritis).
In most cases, cystitis
Cystitis: urgently take action
after sex is a consequence of non-compliance with hygiene rules. Most often, the infection is introduced during the first sexual intercourse and the woman begins cystitis. If cystitis occurs with severe symptoms, the woman turns to the doctor if the symptoms erased, then, she is just not pay attention to the infection for a long time "settled" in the bladder.
Infectious agents in this disease is often Escherichia coli, streptococci, staphylococci, and other organisms that live in the intestines and are part of both opportunistic and normal intestinal microflora. For example, some types of E. coli in the intestine to help digest food. In the bladder, the same E. coli multiplies rapidly adheres to the mucosal cells of the bladder, it is being implemented and causes inflammation.
The culprit cystitis after sex may be a violation of the normal vaginal flora
The microflora of the vagina: purity
- Dysbiosis or bacterial vaginosis. At the same time the vagina multiplies pathogenic microflora (for example, gardnerelly), which at any time can cause inflammation in the area. Bacterial vaginosis during intercourse pathogenic microflora can get into the bladder with sperm.
Finally, agents cystitis after sex can be sexually transmitted infections (STIs). If that does not treat cystitis time, then eventually it becomes chronic cystitis and replaced STI pathogens comes ordinary (non-specific) infection.
How is cystitis after sex
Cystitis after sex is different from the usual cystitis fact that its aggravation are clearly related to sex. This is due to the trauma of the urethra, against the background of rapid sexual intercourse, or just a regular sex life.

A must view the survey in chronic cystitis is a cystoscopy - Inspect the inside surface of the bladder with an optical instrument - a cystoscope. This examination reveals how to develop an inflammatory process and the condition of the bladder wall. If necessary, carry out ultrasound and X-ray examination of the bladder, as well as determine how its function is reduced.
Treatment is carried out under laboratory control. Prescribe antibiotics (both internally and topically), plentiful drink, tools to improve blood circulation in this area, strengthen the immune system, thermal, and physical therapy.
