Welcome to Free Yourself From Cystitis

Cystitis (bladder infection) can be a frustrating condition, often causing discomfort and pain and impacting heavily on everyday life. This website provides information on cystitis and recurrent cystitis, and how it can be managed.

What is cystitis?

Cystitis is an inflammation of the bladder caused by a bacterial infection, often referred to as an uncomplicated lower urinary tract infection (UTI).

Among healthy adults, women represent 90% of patients with urinary tract infections.1 The most common symptoms are a frequent, urgent need to urinate and a burning sensation when urine is passed.2

If you think you have cystitis you should visit your physician (general practitioner, urologist or gynaecologist) for advice on treatment and preventive options.
