Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for reaching out to us with your symptoms of lower abdominal pain, frequent urination and slight burning with urination.

It sounds like cystitis, is the medical term for inflammation of the bladder. Most of the time, the inflammation is caused by a bacterial infection, and it's called a urinary tract infection (UTI). A bladder infection can be painful and annoying, and it can become a serious health problem if the infection spreads to your kidneys.

Symptoms include:

A strong, persistent urge to urinate
A burning sensation when urinating
Passing frequent, small amounts of urine
Blood in the urine (hematuria)
Passing cloudy or strong-smelling urine
Pelvic discomfort
A feeling of pressure in the lower abdomen
Low-grade fever

Please contact your primary care physician, who may ask for a urine sample to determine whether bacteria, blood or pus is in your urine. If so, he or she may request a urine bacterial culture.

Antibiotics are the first line of treatment for cystitis caused by bacteria.
