The bacteria that usually cause cystitis are Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus saprophyticus and Proteus mirabilis, their source often being the gastrointestinal tract. Half of the cases of cystitis are not related to a bacterial infection and may be due to sexual intercourse, anxiety, irritable bladder or chemical sensitivity (for example, to soaps or spermicides).
