La higiene y limpieza adecuada del área genital puede ayudar a reducir las posibilidades de que algunas bacterias se introduzcan a través de la uretra. Las mujeres son especialmente vulnerables a la cistitis, ya que la uretra está muy cerca del recto. Se debe limpiar los genitales de adelante hacia atrás para reducir la posibilidad de contraer bacterias E. coli provenientes del área del recto.Prevención de la cistitis
