Vaccination against bladder infections at your gynecologist
Delicate burning when urinating, abdominal pain and persistent urinary urgency are typical signs of cystitis. The special anatomy of the short urethra and the anus nearby this area makes woman more vulnerable to bacteria. Often there are coliform bacteria, which are transmitted from the gut. A weakened immune system and cold promote inflammation. The further the bladder, the more painful it is.

The immune system is encouraged, against the intestinal bacterium Escherichia coli better to assert (responsible for about 70 percent of all bladder infections). The risk of further infection is also reduced. However, complete protection can not guarantee vaccination and it applies in individual cases to consider whether vaccination is advisable.
