  • Question?????

    I'm going to have my first hydro this Tuesday and I have a feeling I'm going to get my period before then.
    I casually mentioned that to the receptionist and she said that she didn't think it would matter.
    Now I'm worried. It does matter right?

    I am thinking that some others here have mentioned being on their period during the time they had their cysto w/ hydro., but I don't remember for sure. Maybe you could call and ask her to find out for sure so you don't have to cancel at the last minute if it is a big deal.

    Diagnosed August 2001

    Current IC meds: Elmiron (since 2001), Levaquin (one pill after intercourse to prevent UTIs), Effexor (for depression & anxiety)

    Past IC meds: Amitriptyline (Elavil), Hydroxyzine (Vistaril), Detrol LA, Lexapro (for depression & anxiety, but also helped my IC) (They all helped, but I was able to discontinue them.)

    I've been virtually symptom free and able to eat & drink whatever I'd like for about 8 years now.

They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms -- to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.” ~ Viktor Frankl

        This is a question you need to ask your doctor. Some doctors day it doesn't matter; others prefer to wait.

          Thank you everyone. I think I'm going to postpone it myself because I would be twice as uncomfortable.
