What Is Interstitial Cystitis?
Interstitial cystitis (or IC) is a chronic condition causing bladder symptoms including bladder pressure, bladder pain, urinary frequency, urinary urgency and pelvic pain. The symptoms of IC may vary from person to person, and even from day to day within the same person.
Triggers such as certain foods and drinks, stress, and sexual activity can cause your symptoms to flare up. The pain can range from mild discomfort to severe pain and can have a long lasting impact on quality of life.
Because it is a chronic condition, there is no cure. However, medications and other therapies may offer you relief, and some people may even experience symptom free periods.
Symptoms of Interstitial Cystitis
Are you experiencing any of the following:
- Chronic bladder and/or pelvic pain
- Urgent need to urinate
- Frequent urination, often of small amounts, throughout the day and night (up to 60 times a day)
- Pain or discomfort while the bladder fills and relief after urinating.
- Pain during sexual intercourse.
If so, please contact Urogynecology of Kansas City for evaluation and to discuss treatment options that are right for you.
How Is Interstitial Cystitis Treated?
Treatment options for IC vary, and no one treatment will work for all patients. We like to individualize the treatment plan based on your symptoms, your preferences, and your response to treatment. We typically recommend combinations of treatment including lifestyle and behavioral modifications, physical therapy, and medications. While there is no cure for IC, our team of experts will work diligently with you to find the modalities that best alleviate your symptoms.
How Much Does Treatment for IC Cost?
As symptoms and triggers vary greatly from one patient to another, IC treatments are also varied. Once we have formulated a treatment approach for you, we will review your treatment plan and price details with you.
