Cystitis is the medical term for inflammation of the bladder that affects up to 40% of women. Most of the time, the inflammation is caused by a bacterial infection, and its called a urinary tract infection (UTI). The bladder is a muscular bag that stores urine from the kidneys. Urine leaves the body through a tube called the urethra. Cystitis occurs when bacteria travel up the urethra, infect the urine and inflame the bladder lining.
