Interstitial Cystitis (IC) is part of a spectrum of diseases called painful bladder syndrome.¹ When commercially available drugs fail, patients and providers look to compounding to find a solution that works for individual needs.

Signs & Symptoms

Interstitial cystitis signs and symptoms include:

  • Pain in your pelvis or between the vagina and anus in women
  • Pain between the scrotum and anus in men (perineum)
  • Chronic pelvic pain
  • A persistent, 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.

When left untreated, Interstitial Cystitis (IC) can lead to a number of complications including reduced bladder capacity, sexual intimacy problems, chronic pain and interrupted sleep.
