  • Anyone been Pregnat with IC

    Lattly I have been thinking alot about haveing a baby. But having IC and Endo, I am not sure the possibity of it. If the pain will be worse or not? I have been reconcidering to get remarried. And been asked if i want to have a baby or not. I honestly didnt know what to say. I just kind of studdered. Plus i had 2 miscarriages already,being I am already 33 going on 34, I am not sure to even try. My New Ob/Gyn, said something to the idea w while back that the miscarraiges where probably due to a week uterious. And something about getting medication,or shot before hand, I forget its been while since talked to her over it.
    But just wondering what others experainces have been like. I know the out come is a great baby. But how is the whole time being pregnat? For me it was hard enough with loosing the last pregnacy. I just dont even know if trying is even worth the pain again. Or if it will lead to greater pain for the whole time.
    If any of you have any thoughts on let me know. thanks

      I have a friend who was diagnosed 12 years ago and she says that getting pregnant was an instant cure for her ic. She now has flares that might last for an hour and then she┬┤ll be ok for months. I really hope you can get pregnant and if you do, have a wonderful baby and get rid of the ic.
      Best of luck,
