An infection in the bladder is also called cystitis. It can be caused by yeast overgrowth or from bacteria from the bowel that live on the skin and enter the urinary tract through the urethra. Once these bacteria enter the urethra, they travel upward, causing infection in the bladder and sometimes other parts of the urinary tract. A healthy immune system is able to prevent the overgrowth of yeast and bacteria in the bladder.
During the infection, individuals should focus on decreasing the painful symptoms and eliminating the harmful bacteria. Sometimes flushing the bladder with cranberry juice along with Vitamin C and avoiding sugar will relieve a mild infection otherwise an antibiotic is often prescribed.
It happens frequently that individuals experience recurring infections, multiple times a year. A change in body, diet or lifestyle, such as having a child, changing partner or stressful events, can have a negative impact and start a cycle of urinary tract infections. Not only are UTI painful and draining, recurring infections can lead to multiple cycles of antibiotics and this places great stress on the rest of the body.
