Recurrent cystitis in non-pregnant women

By Ayan Sen

Abstract

Cystitis is a bacterial infection of the lower urinary tract which causes pain when passing urine, and causes frequency, urgency, haematuria, and suprapubic pain not associated with passing urine. Recurrent cystitis is usually defined as three episodes of UTI in the previous 12 months, or two episodes in the previous 6 months.It is common in young, healthy women, with one study finding 27% of women developing a second infection within 6 months of the first, and 2.7% having a second recurrence during this period
