Dr. Rebecca Boyd- Relieve Bladder Pain Now!

Are you suffering with chronic pain or pressure over your bladder?  Do you feel like you have to pee frequently, usually in small amounts?  Do you feel like you have a urinary tract infection, but when you get tested, it’s negative? Painful intercourse?
More than 4 million women suffer with these symptoms of interstitial cystitis, so you are not alone.
Many women do get improvement in their interstitial cystitis with:
-Dietary changes
-Bladder training
-Physical Therapy
-Anti-inflammatories (Aleve, Motrin and others); Anti-histamines (Claritin and others); Tricyclic Antidepressants
-Pentosan (Elmiron) which specifically treats IC, but may take up to 6 months to see improvement
Some have even gone above and beyond in treatment:
Bladder distention (inserting a catheter into the bladder and stretching it water or gas)
Bladder instillation (inserting a catheter into the bladder and placing a medication or combination of medicines for approximately 15 minutes)
