Abstract

Information to help women who are not pregnant discuss the options with their healthcare professionals. Cystitis is usually caused by bacteria (germs) from your gut getting into your bladder (also called lower urinary tract infection, UTI). Sometimes symptoms get better by themselves, but many people will need antibiotic treatment.
