My IC was caused by using a diaphragm for about 10 years. During the years I used a diaphragm, I had many bladder infections and after a while my bladder became painful even when there was no infection present. The infection stopped as soon as I quit using the diaphragm (after having my tubes tied), but my bladder lining still felt raw and painful. The bladder pain slowly got much better over the next few years. Then the pain flared up again starting in my 40s and became severe by age 50 (due to decline in estrogen, I now know). At age 51, I started estrogen for vaginal dryness (Estrace vaginal cream and Vivelle Dot patch), and to my delight, my bladder pain mostly went away also. I'm now almost 60 and I plan to continue on estrogen because it still greatly helps my bladder. I don't need to take progesterone because I had a hysterectomy at age 48. So I have 2 tips for IC sufferers: (1) don't use a diaphragm and (2) try estrogen if you are menopausal or peri-menopausal.

Hi all,
I’m a Canadian researcher who works with women experiencing chronic genital pain, often during sexual intercourse. This pain goes by many names, including vulvodynia, vulvar vestibulitis syndrome, generalized vulvodynia, and provoked vestibulodynia. This pain is often experienced by those with IC, and even though millions are suffering from this pain condition, countless women have great difficulty getting their pain condition recognized and diagnosed.

Our research group wants to change that, and we need your help. We are currently recruiting participants for a paid online study on women’s health and chronic genital pain. The purpose of this study is to develop a questionnaire (the Vulvar Pain Assessment Questionnaire) that will help health care professionals assess symptoms of chronic vulvar pain.

The study involves answering an extensive list of questions, so that we can fully investigate the nature of this pain. The questions cover topics such as sociodemographics, gynecological and pain history, pain characteristics, the impact of pain, sexuality, and mental health. The questions are spread over two parts, each taking ~30 minutes.

All of the questions are completed online, and all women over the age of 18 are eligible to participate so long as they are fluent in English (reading and writing), have access to the Internet, and currently experience chronic genital pain. This study is completely confidential, and has been approved by our university ethics board.

If you, or someone you know, would be interested in participating, you may find a Letter of Information on the study’s website, https://surveys.psyc.queensu.ca/Checkbox/VPAQ.aspx

Thanks so much, we appreciate your time!

Hi All,
I have had IC for 33+ years so have been on the block, unfortunately, forever! You know if it was a guy that had this problem, we would have a cure by now! Here is what I can tell you all that will help SOME! There are two areas we suffer in, pelvic and the bladder and there are two levels of pain, horrible and want to kill myself! For years I thought it was just yeast infections and the only thing that would "soothe" down there would be yeast cream. No yeast but the cream seemed to help when a flare would come up. You are so raw on the outside you can bleed sometimes and urinating you want to just scream. I had my first bladder infection in high school in Germany and after having a child, again, in Germany, is when this thing reared it's ugly head. There were times it was not sooooo bad but closer to menapause I came, the longer the episodes would stay. After menapause, there is no let up at all. Everyone go get on Doxyclycline (100 mg 2x a day)(you need twice the amount but this is the max they will give you) (or some other close related drug)(you need to be on this for the rest of your life) and it will "calm" the pelvic" pain between flares/infections but it will do nothing for the bladder. You need to have Macrobid and pyridium pills to get you thru the infections. I believe it is a bug and if you want to read on that, it is a "no wall organism" called Mycoplasma and something like ureaplasma (sorry on misspelling). It is hard to culture in the lab so you will get a very expensive test with no results. It is from having sex they say. Everyone has it but it is how the body treats it or shall we say, suffers with it. Follow the IC diet will help with it but it will not cure it. Anything sugar free run the other direction, same for sodas, sugar free or loaded, stay away from carbonation, koolaide, all of that, no flour of any kind, all these things affect it. It is a life sentence for sure! It hurts too much for sex, and there are times you just shutter with so much pain. Doxycycline is the only thing that has truly helped, all these other things which I have tried do not work for me. For those that cannot sleep, get yourself on Seroquel, try the smallest dosage which I think is 35 or 75 mg, I cut that in 4 parts and take 1 part each night and gives me the best sleep. It is a psych drug supposedly but it is the best sleeping pill! I also suffer from Rheumatoid Arthritis and die in my hips so Seroquel is a Godsend. Since Doxyclycline certainly helps, try to beg your doctor, be it the gyn or the urologist to see if you can get on two different antibiotics to see if that will help that much more. Keep going to doctor after doctor til you find one that is sympathetic. They just do not understand how just horrible this is, GET IT ACROSS TO THEM IF YOU HAVE TO CRY, STAND ON THEIR DESK, WHATEVER!! This goes for the gals with Vulvodynia as well! Good luck to all of us!!

You can get rid of the urethra pain is not to mess with it and leave it alone and dont think about it and it will keep it alive so just dont think about it . I have Ic for 9 yrs and now I have endometoris and vulvodynia and pudenal nerve entrapment now and Im trying to get better with pudendal nerve entrapment everything is under control excpet pne..

Re: Urethra pain — How can I treating urethra pain ? it feel like bladder infection but I have vulvdoynia . I have Ic for 9 yrs and jsut got vulvodynia but urethra pain went away while IC was alone until vulvodynia mess my life up .. and now how can I get rid of the urethra pain? Because I never had any problem with sex until vulvodynia came along and all of sudden urethra came back and it didnt burn peeing at all , I m fine only once while I get flare up with PMS ..

Re: Urinary frequency — Around 60 times a day morning and night it is the most, every 15 20 mins I need to go.

Re: Neuropathic medications — my mistake - I meant to post this under treatments that help. How can I change this?

Re: Urinary frequency — What CURED getting repeated UTI's was d-mannose. It is a simple sugar and you mix it with water. After a year of 1 UTI/month, this was a miracle for me (and natural). My urinary frequency decreased after the yearlong UTI assault. I also started using grapefruit seed extract (GSE) a natural antibiotic which seemed to help with the frequency. I highly recommend it as I have taken the prescription meds which left me feeling stupid, slow (the muscle relaxants for my bladder, etc. and didn't work). I have long believed I had a hidden bacteria/infection as the root cause of my problems but nothing has ever shown up on a test, following the UTI's. My frequency/urgency are normal although my vulvar inflammation mimics those symptoms sometimes.

Re: Long-term antibiotics — I actually have been on antibiotics for 3 years for Lyme. Haven't had any problems since I started them...not sure that it's connected. I take probiotics which seems to help keep good bacteria around.

Re: Alkalizing of urine — I take sodium bicarbonate at night, and it seems to help.

Re: Painful urination — I'm lucky mine is pretty mild. avoiding cranberry juice helps a lot. There is some mystery food that seems to cause it, and also if my bladder gets really full it happens.

Re: Pelvic pain — sometimes causes the pudendal nerve to become inflammed. it doesn't happen very often though, it is extremely painful when it does.

Re: Glucosamine — Taking glucoasmine has compeletly taken care of my symptomes (pain, urgency, frequency, burning....) as long as I'm not under very stressful conditions. It takes a few months to kick in but has no side effects unlike antidepressants which I've also tried. I also take chondroitin and MSM with it which seems to make it kick in a little faster but I've heard that chondroitin can make some people worse?

Re: Long-term antibiotics — It worked, but I think my body may have suffered longer-term consequences from killing off good bacteria for so long. I don't know if I would ever do that again.
