I was predisposed to Interstitial Cystitis due to years of UTI's and cutting to help enlarge the canal for urine to pass. I was retaining 1/3rd of the urine in my bladder. Add menopause to that and dryness caused problems. A great old common sense urologist used an injection of DMSL solution that I had to retain for about 30 minutes. Not an easy thing to do when there is irritation and fullness. That cleared things up quickly. Repeat discomfort responds well to using a cotton ball saturated with DMSL solution from the health food store. Using coconut oil to lubricate the irritated tissue before intercourse, and emptying the bladder afterwards followed by the DMSL has kept me feeling good for a few years now. Also, becasue it's a burning sensation, a clean wet washcloth with COLD water held to the area works wonders too. ...And I still drink my coffee and eat as always.
