Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

cystitis or inflammation of the bladder is less common for men than it is for women.

Dr. David :

this is because the male urethra is longer and more protected than the female urethra.

Dr. David :

and it is harder for bacteria to go up into the penis and up the long urethra for men.

Customer:

I don't think I have thrush because im not itchy or no discharge but need to urinate a lot its not burning but I just feel uncomfortable so I think its cystitis sothe chances of him getting it are quite low then?

Dr. David :

yes.

Dr. David :

just because you have cystitis symptoms and have sex, this does not spread cystitis to him.

Dr. David :

you could still have a bacterial bladder infection.

Dr. David :

so you should see your doctor and get your urine tested

Dr. David :

and if there is an infection, you will need a course of antibiotics.
