Causes of cystitis/urinary tract infection
- Cold feet
- wet bathing suits
- Sitting on cold ground
- poor hygiene (e.g. after sexual intercourse)
Symptoms of a bladder infection/urinary tract infection
A bladder infection is noticeable through a
- constant and burning urge to urinate,
- pain when urinating,
- feeling of pressure and fullness in the lower abdomen,
- cloudy and strong-smelling urine,
- traces of blood in the urine,
- Urinating only small amounts of urine, despite a strong urge to urinate.
Treating a bladder infection/urinary tract infection
Slight irritation of the bladder can be fought independently. For this purpose, the bladder should be kept warm and two liters of liquid, preferably special bladder teas, should be consumed daily.
Serious inflammation should be diagnosed by a doctor with a urine sample and treated with antibiotics.
- regular urination,
- lots of drinking as well
- Cleaning from front to back after a bowel movement helps prevent bladder problems.
An irritable bladder is characterized by frequent urges to urinate. It is not uncommon for those affected to have to go to the toilet every few minutes, not only during the day but also at night. But then only small amounts of urine come out. The urge to urinate subsides shortly after urinating, only to return after a short time. For some people, the urge doesn’t go away even after they urinate — they feel the constant urge to urinate no matter how often they go to the bathroom. Sometimes the irritable bladder is associated with so-called urge incontinence: the patients often do not reach the toilet in time. The quality of life of those affected can be very limited by an irritable bladder.
Men in particular are affected by problems with urination, as their prostate increases in size with age. The urethra becomes constricted and urination becomes difficult. The problems range from a frequent urge to urinate, a weakened stream of urine to a complete inability to urinate.
