A few words about the nature of the disease

It should be noted that the disease in question, in most cases, is of an infectious nature. In other words, if time does not take up her treatment, the problem will progress and move into a more complex shape with very different consequences. However, in some cases, the fair sex (and in fact the disease tend to a greater extent women) learn about cystitis after consuming certain medications. The same effect can occur when using certain means personal hygiene, for example, gels, sprays, oils and others.

However, one can argue that the so-called auxiliary medications - this is the main reason that can cause cystitis. After all, the body of each person has their own unique characteristics and genetic material, and therefore a reaction to medications in different individuals may also be different.

In this case, that brings people suffering from this disease, if its root causes are of a different character? The answer to this question lies in a factor of inflammation of the bladder. This is a problem faced by all who seek to experts, trying to cure poison the existence of cystitis.

This applies to acute cases such as when there is blood in the urine. In this case, any expert determines that the bladder shell is defined damage which may be caused, as mentioned earlier, taking medicines. This means that the treatment of this problem requires a complete examination in view of the particular features of the body to help identify the most harmful factor.

Hemorrhagic cystitis as an acute form of the disease

We have already said that cystitis may have various forms, determining the degree of damage of the urogenital system. Thus, the disease may be infectious and noninfectious, primary and secondary, chronic and acute. This classification is conditional, since only allowing for the female body specialist to whom you refer, will be able to more accurately determine the shape of your disease. However, in the case of cystitis in which urine contains blood separation, most experts classify it as acute hemorrhagic form, which requires special attention.

I must say that in this case the performance of medical statistics are somewhat contradictory, as evidenced by the fact that the hemorrhagic cystitis in the majority characteristic for men, while the disease as a whole, according to the same sources, has a female character. However, it should be clarified that the hemorrhagic form with abnormal urine (blood splashes) is more common in older men at risk for prostate diseases.

However, experience shows that statistics are not always the main indicator, which means that a particular disease (in this case, hemorrhagic cystitis) may occur equally in both men and women. In short, regardless of gender, should be carefully observed the intimate hygiene, such as violation of rules - one of the key causes of hemorrhagic cystitis. It is thanks to the development of bacterial infection of the medium into the cavity of the bladder, gradually spreading there, and subsequently causes inflammation of various kinds. Therefore hemorrhagic form has an infectious character.

As blood enters the urine?

Approximately understood in the typology of the investigated forms of cystitis, you need to determine how blood gets into the urine. Determining the cause of the problem will help in its further decision. By the way, hemorrhagic cystitis does not always mean that the urine will be constantly present blood blotches, you can watch their appearance from time to time. Furthermore, you may not always feel a lot of pain, but the process of urination is usually hampered by the presence of blood in the urine. Tom has a simple explanation: blood clots like to play the role of blood clots passing through the urethra, causing urinary excretion itself is complicated.

As a rule, acute cystitis (only in this case, the disease can have a hemorrhagic character) urine stained with blood completely, and the process does not stop throughout the disease. However, there are times when blood is allocated directly to the end of urination, if hemorrhagic cystitis is easier and less advanced. And if you do not delay the campaign to the expert, the treatment of this form of the disease will be more easy and fast.

Previously it stated that the main reason for finding blood in the urine may be damage to the shell of the bladder. In extremely severe cases of ulcerative lesions can be character, and in this case the treatment will be long and painful. But now we are talking about the standard form of cystitis in which there is an infringement of the bladder epithelium, loss of blood vessels, which leads to the appearance of blood in the urine inclusions. But the causes of damage to the bladder can be a variety of factors, predominant among which are infectious agents (viral origin characterized by hemorrhagic cystitis).

Bacterial pathogens as the main cause of urine with blood

Speaking of cystitis, viral nature of its occurrence should be considered not in the least. For medical statistics says that among the most "popular" bacterial peddlers hemorrhagic cystitis occupies a leading position E. coli.

In fairness it should be noted that this viral agent can not be unambiguously classified as pathogenic. The fact that the principal place of localization of E. coli - the human intestine. It has its purpose there, because thanks to her work a more rapid digestion. And quite different situation is in the case where E. coli is urine. Then she undergoes rapid reproduction, settles to the bladder mucosa and to some extent it is the cause of damage to the epithelium. As a result, as mentioned previously, blood enters the urine. And already on the extent and amount of damage to the shell of the bladder will depend directly on the treatment of this problem.

Reasons contributing to the development of hematuria

However, E. coli and other bacteria, creating a beneficial environment for the development of bladder infections are not the only cause of hematuria (so on a professional medical language called factor for blood in the urine). Indeed, to date cystitis - a fairly common disease among the female half of society and among the male part. Moreover, such a catch "infection" of today can even children (mostly girls, and already in early adolescence). This means that it is time to review the list of causes and factors that may contribute to the development of hemorrhagic cystitis.

  • The first and most important factor - the damage to the mucosa of the bladder caused by a bacterial (E. coli, fungi and so on.) Character, taking a variety of medications and the use of feminine hygiene products. As described earlier, this factor can be regarded as a trigger, contributing complications varying degrees in hemorrhagic cystitis.
  • Hematuria can also be caused by unprofessional approach to gynecological and urological consultation when the material is extracted for analysis (smear), the introduction of catheters and other medical instruments.
  • It is also one of the main reasons which resulted in developing cystitis and hematuria as one of its forms - is the weakening of the immune system, which can be caused by a malfunction of the thyroid gland malfunctions in the metabolic processes of the body, respectively.
  • Lack of proper personal hygiene, which carries a mandatory appearance of infection developing in the urine and gradually extending to the cavity of the bladder (contributes to damage its sheath).
  • Certain periods of sexual development in women, such as pregnancy, the postpartum period and menopause.
  • Another important reason for the appearance of blood in the urine - long and often refrain from emptying the bladder. No wonder doctors always warn their patients that go against nature and needs a long time to refrain from going to the toilet is extremely harmful. The fact that in a crowded condition in which the bladder with abstention, it overly stretched muscle fiber, which leads to poor circulation in the walls.
