Cath, my doc told me to drink lots of lemon barley water when I had a bout a while ago, worth a try. Ahhh, lemon barley water!

Not that there is anything wrong with small b*bs of course.

It's not the size, it's what you do with it.

I can't beleive that this thread has been going for over 4 hours and nobody has suggested diluting the cranberry juice with vodka to make it more palatable.

There you go Cath, don't say I never do anything for you!

I suffer with this dreadfully to the point when I finish a ride I'm already weeing blood and its straight onto the antibiotics that I keep for this reason! I have however found that damage limitation consists of crucially drinking lots. A wee mid cycle will flush out any nasties but most importantly of all, wash your Betty and slather in an antibacterial barrier cream. I use sudocrem or that moo stuff although a little thin. Also apply to padding. Have a big drink on your return and wash Betty ASAP! It's the bane of my life. I'm sat here suffering now instead of cycling because I didn't do the above! We are all different anatomically. Leaking wee, sweat and bacteria from our skin has a party in our shorts while we cycle and the cystitis is the hangover!

Maybe a change of saddle would help. I was talking to a lady clubmate  who had changed to an Adamo saddle and was very pleased with it.

Anyone constantly taking antibacterials for the symptoms of cystitis needs to get checked out for urino-genital warts that may be growing in the bladder and/or the urethra.

In her early twenties, my wife had suffered terribly from cystitis since her mid-teens. She was in constant pain and constantly taking course after course of antibacterials to little avail.

A regular annual check-up showed that my wife had pre-cervical-cancer warts growing on her cervix, a common condition. She had these removed with laser treatment. I put it to the hospital registrar overseeing her case that it was possible that she had similar warts growing in her urinary system. He said he had never heard of such a case and of course pooh-poohed my theory.

My poor wife was at her wit's end so I insisted that the registrar take a look. Lo and behold, what do you think he found? Yep, not just one but many cervical-type warts growing in my wife's bladder and in her urethra. All were zapped using the same laser.

Result - all symptoms of cystitis disappeared for good, never to return. The registrar was so impressed he said he intended to write it up as a case study and submit it for publication. Don't think he ever did though.

Bottom line - get your urethra and bladder checked out for obstructions caused by urino-genital warts and other lesions.
