If the answer is ‘yes’, you may be suffering from Bladder Pain Syndrome (BPS). This condition is often associated with reduced quality of life, low self-esteem and can cause problems with your sex life. It affects around 5% of the population and is 5 times more common in women than men.
I often see women with BPS that has gone undiagnosed for many years. The first step is to rule out other causes of pain such as urinary tract infection, bladder stones, endometriosis or bowel problems. Sometimes investigations are needed such as urodynamics or a camera test of your bladder (cystoscopy).
I offer the following treatments for bladder pain:
Medication (cimetidine, amitriptyline)
Bladder instillation therapy
Botox® bladder injections
