    My OB also has a theory that while pregnant, a woman's body releases added hormones that are natural smooth muscle relaxers....which, sometimes, help ease the symptoms of IC.

    I believe that although hormones may not be the CAUSE, they can certainly affect our IC symptoms. I am one that suffers terrible flares during menstruation.

    Of course, this doesn't speak for our male IC sufferers.

    Hmmmm....so many questions....

    Marsha,
    That is way beyond what medical science is capable of doing today. Maybe in the future, it will be possible.

    The immune system changes during pregnancy too. It does so, so it won't attack the embryo/fetus as a foreign object. When the pregnancy is over, the immune system returns to normal. It is quite common ,for people with autoimmune diseases, to have a remission during pregnancy, only to have the disease return ,after the baby is born.

    Cure for IC??

    I've noticed that several people say when they were pregnant, and soon after they had no IC symptoms, but then they re-appear. Has anyone thought to look into the hormonal issues that would cause a pregnant woman to be symptom free???
