Hi lin,

It depends on what was found as the underlying cause of your cystitis. Most bladder/kidney infections are caused by bacteria, and would be unrelated to an ovarian cyst.

However....I found this interesting at the Mayo Clinic:
"Cystitis associated with other conditions:
Cystitis may sometimes occur as a complication of other disorders, such as gynecologic cancers, pelvic inflammatory disorders, endometriosis, Crohn's disease, diverticulitis, lupus and tuberculosis." [Source: Mayo Clinic: Cystitis Causes. It does not describe the "why" they are related, but most likely due to hormone fluctuations... this would be an excellent question for your doctor, as it comes from a very reliable source.

Let us know what your doctor says, and what your results are. We are here to answer any additional questions you have and/or to provide resources.
