Also known as Interstitial Cystitis

This condition can cause pain and irritation in the bladder and cause you to feel a frequent urge to urinate. PBS/IC is often mistaken for recurrent UTIs, can be difficult to treat and can make it hard to function in your daily life. 

We offer a range of treatment options that can help manage symptoms.


What is Painful bladder syndrome (PBS)/ Interstitial cystitis (IC)?

PBS/IC is a chronic bladder condition that causes recurring bouts of pain and pressure in the bladder and pelvic area, often accompanied by an urgent and frequent need to urinate - for some up to 60 times a day, around the clock. Discomfort associated with interstitial cystitis can be so excruciating that, according to surveys, only about half of people with the disorder work full-time. 

There's no cure for IC, but many treatments offer some relief, either singly or in combination.

What other disorders are associated with PBS/IC?

  • Allergies

  • Migraine

  • Irritable bowel syndrome

  • Fibromyalgia (a condition causing muscle pain)

  • Chronic fatigue syndrome

  • Vulvodynia (pain or burning in the vulvar area that isn't caused by infection or skin disease)
