If someone has four or more acute cystitis occurrences per year, we speak of chronic recurrent urinary tract infections, in most cases developing new bacterial infections. A bacterial cystitis is manifested by continuous urgency, associated with frequent urination and pain in the pelvic area, with the presence of pathogens in the urine.
Damage to the protective layer of the bladder may facilitate frequent bladder infections allowing bacteria to easily adhere to the bladder wall. A GAG-replenishment treatment with Gepan® instill temporarily supplements the damaged bladder wall, making it more difficult for bacteria to adhere to it, thus protecting against new infections.
