It has been reported that some patients have been misdiagnosed with Sexually Transmitted Disease, when in fact the correct diagnosis in their specific case was Cystitis.
If the cause of cystitis is bacterial, antibiotics are prescribed. Non-infectious cystitis are treated depending on the underlying cause. Diagnosis is confirmed by reviewing the medical history as well as performing a urine test to check for bacteria or blood in the urine. Other tests include a cystoscopy during which the doctor can remove a small sample for biopsy.
