    Fortunately ive never suffered from erection problems or low testosterone (sp?)

    We are all so different and finding what helps can take a while. Im still in the middle of my journey.

    This is a really old thread I know, but I just wanted to put my two cents in to say that yes in fact I was found to have extremely low testosterone as well. I am a male 29 years old. I was diagnosed with IC 2.5 years ago, after suffering since about 14.

    The best piece of advice I could give you is to get checked for low testosterone. I experienced all of the symptoms you mentioned above, plus I have IC, and I was tested and found to have extremely low testosterone. I'm not sure if there is a connection between IC and low test in males, or if the low test is a side effect of the medications i was taking for IC, but i have noticed many of the men on this message board with IC also have low testosterone. If you are starting a family, getting a much-needed boost of testosterone will get things going in the bedroom again.
