The causative agent of cystitis often becomes conditionally pathogenic flora (E. coli, staphylococcus, etc.) that gets into the bladder. Especially “willingly” infection attacks the body, which lowered defenses (as it is known, during pregnancy the immune system somewhat depressed).

The development of cystitis during pregnancy also contributes to an ever-growing uterus compresses the bladder, which leads to a violation of the outflow of urine and active reproduction of pathogenic micro-organisms.


Cystitis – the disease is not lethal, but very unpleasant. You can verify this by reading characteristic of the disease symptoms:

  • dragging pain in the abdomen;
  • false urge to urinate (pee often “out” literally drop by drop);
  • turbid urine color;
  • stinging when urinating;
  • particles of blood and mucus in the urine;
  • allocation of strong-smelling urine;
  • increased body temperature.


Preliminary diagnosis expert urologist can deliver, based on the patient’s complaints. Confirm and clarify the diagnosis will help the following diagnostic methods:

  • Analysis of urine;
  • PCR (DNA) -diagnostics (helps to identify the causative agent);
  • Ultrasound of the kidneys and bladder.
