Are UTIs dangerous?
A UTI itself isn’t dangerous, and most of the time it can be resolved without treatment.
However, the main danger of a UTI is that the infection may spread from the bladder to the kidneys, which can be serious if not treated.
What is cystitis?
Cystitis is a common type of UTI that predominantly affects women.
It occurs when the bladder becomes inflamed, typically caused by a bladder infection.
They’re usually more of a nuisance than a sign that something serious is going on, with mild cases often getting better on their own within a few days.
If it doesn’t go away on its own and your symptoms worsen, you should speak to your doctor as it could be a sign of a kidney infection.
Will I get cystitis after sex?
You can get cystitis after having sex, but that doesn’t mean you’ll get cystitis every time you have sex or that there aren’t any other causes.
Women often get cystitis after having sex because it can make it easier for bacteria to get into your urethra and move up to your bladder from there, causing a UTI.
If you use a diaphragm as your method of contraception this can also increase your chances of getting cystitis after sex.
What causes a UTI?
Women are more likely to develop a UTI because they have a shorter urethra than men, so bacteria has more of a chance to get into the bladder or kidney.
The most common reason why you might get a UTI is when the bacteria from poo enters the urinary tract.
Other reasons are sex, pregnancy, if you have a catheter inserted, kidney stones, dehydration, a weakened immune system and not keeping the genital area clean and dry.
