The bladder inflammation is caused by the infection of the urinary system mostly from the vagina and anus and often occurring with women.
People with bladder inflammation will often have pain in urination. The urine will have foul odor, unclear or blood clots. The symptoms will occur after a long urinary retention.
The bladder of normal people will be able to store 300 – 350 cc of urine. Then, the bladder muscle wall will squeeze through the urinary tube and exhale the urine in less than 30 seconds. Each day, we can urinate 3-5 times a day without pain or burning in the urethra.
For those who have to urinate more than 5 times a day which is not caused by the inflammation of the urinary tract infection, it may be caused by other causes such as small bladder not being able to store the urine longer resulting in often urination. Some people may urinate every 1 or 2 hours and have to get up to urinate more than 2 times each night.
