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.

Relieve Your Bladder Pain Now!

Many women do get improvement in their interstitial cystitis with:

-Dietary changes

-Supplements

-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)

So here’s what you may not have tried — 

It’s a new procedure that has been helpful for many patients suffering with interstitial cystitis.

It is called the O-shot.

A woman in her 50’s was recently received the O-Shot to try to improve her symptoms.  She complained of an 8/10 pain and pressure over her bladder and back.  “It is all day, every day.”  She also had pain in her back that extended into her leg.  She describes urinary urgency and pressure, that felt like a urinary tract infection, but wasn’t.

Eight weeks after her O-shot, she says “It has been an answer to prayer” and “it has helped tremendously.”  She states that “half of my symptoms are gone.”  She doesn’t have the pain and pressure that she had.  She now rates them both as a 4/10.  Some days now, she doesn’t have symptoms at all.  She is going to get another O-shot to try to get rid of her pain completely.

Also, listen to Jane’s experience with chronic IC and how the O-shot has changed her life.

It is also used for incontinence, but has been very effective for many women suffering with IC.

So do the common things first! If you are newly diagnosed with IC, change up your diet, eliminate caffeine, B vitamins and citrus. But for those of you (an estimated 4-12 million women) with IC, or if someone you love has IC, consider the O-Shot to help them.

      Lyn,
      The O-shot is a procedure that uses the platelets (concentrated) found in your blood. The platelets contain growth factors that help to restore and regenerate tissues, wherever they are placed. In the case of interstitial cystitis, we place the concentrated platelets in the area between the bladder and the vagina. While the procedure was not developed for IC, I have had fantastic results.
