Interstitial Cystitis: Inflammatory Bladder Condition

Interstitial cystitis (IC) is an inflammatory condition in the bladder. The most common symptoms are chronic pelvic pain, pain with sexual activity and sense of chronic urgency or feeling like you have bladder infections when there is no infection present. You do not have to have all of theses symptoms to have IC. There are many potential causes and every patient is different. Some of the possible causes are dietary triggers, infection, genetic factors, allergic reactions.

Treatment Options for IC

Diet changes are the first line treatment and here at Pelvic Health Specialists we have been treating IC for many years so we can help you through the difficulty of finding the foods that you can and can’t tolerate. There are several medications that can help the symptoms and also can help heal the lining of the bladder. We also offer advanced treatments with cystoscopy and hydrodistention, ablation of Hunner ulcers, PTNS and Interstim neuromodulation for the urgency and frequency.
