  • Ovulation flare?

    I was thinking water I drank today caused my flare. But...every month when I ovulate, I get burning. It's a guarantee. Just like I get flared during my period. Talk about frustrating. Anyway, do any of you experience burning and discomfort from ovulation? I'm not sure if my monthly burning is due to an IC issue or due to ovulation. It's hard to say. I plan to ask my doctor this Wednesday but wanted to hear from others here if possible.

    Thank you...

    Diagnosed: 2011 - have had symptoms for over 20 years. Diagnoses so far: Overactive Bladder, then IC, and now Myofacial Pelvic Pain Syndrome.

    Medicines: For IC am doing PT, and will be taking Gabapentin, Ativan, Tramadol and Ambien. Ice packs and drinking vanilla shakes help. Foods that cause a flare, tomatoes, yogurt, coffee, soda, all sports drinks, and most teas. Take Verapamil, Naproxen (as needed), Omeprazole, Frova (as needed) and receive Botox shots(every three months) for migraines. For allergies I use Claritin and Flonase. (Feel free to ask me any questions about meds.)

    Other conditions: Migraines, allergies, mild IBS.

    Hey! Yah it sure is possible.... I have an increase in my frequency for about half a day when I ovulate and my urethra can sometimes feel scratchy or raw. I still do sometimes but not as often anymore.

    28 yrs old,

    I have little to no problems now with my bladder, unless I am very stressed out, I forget to take Elmiron for a few days, or I eat or drink something that I know is a trigger...(i.e) like eating a tomato or drinking tea.... Took a long time to get here, but it IS possible to feel good again I just want people who are new to know that IT CAN get better, and for every one person who is suffering, there are hundreds of others who feel GREAT because they have control of thier IC.

    What Works: Tylenol 3's, Pyridium, Elmiron (Going on 4 years now!) HOT showers!!!

    Medications/ Vitamins: Elmiron-100mg 4x's daily Tylenol 3's/Advil (flaring) Vitamin D, WILD salmon oil 4x gels in the morning, Women's ONE a DAY multivitamin (the gummy kind doesn't make me flare) and PROBIOTICS!

      Yes for sure.. My flares are usually every month around the same time.. It is about 10-15 days after my period that I feel like I am in a flare. It is awful but I guess it could be worse. The flares are pretty much under control with Cystoprotek that I am taking but still get flares when there is any sort of vibrating on a four wheeler, mower, etc. I can usually count on a flare every month though because of ovulation. Some months are not as bad as others though.
