What are the most common causes of cystitis?

Dr Louisa Draper

"Cystitis is not a sexually transmitted disease (STI), but women can often get cystitis after sex, as during sexual intercourse, bacteria can get pushed into the urethra. Urinating as soon as possible after sex helps to flush any bacteria out of your system. "

Cystitis is most commonly caused by a bacterial infection. Bacteria like E. coli, which usually live harmlessly in your bowel, can enter your urinary tract, move up to your bladder and cause an infection. Cystitis is a common problem and affects half of all women at some point in their lives.
