Cystitis is a bladder infection that makes you feel as if you want to urinate frequently. Each time you do, however, you feel an excruciating burning sensation. You may also get mild fever symptoms such as headaches, a pain in the abdomen, and a high temperature.
Cystitis is caused by bacteria, but over-enthusiastic love-making can also cause the urethra to become inflamed, which results in these acutely uncomfortable symptoms. Most women experience cystitis at one time or another, but for some it is a constantly recurring complaint that can have a devastating impact on their lives and relationships.
