  • Considering 2nd pregnancy

    I was diagnosed with IC in March of this year after 10 months of mild symptoms. In January I tried to get pregnant and had a "missed pregnancy"...the fertilized egg did not attach. I had terrible IC symptoms and then from then on my symptoms got worse. I am on Elmiron, Elavil, Ditropan and prosed now and am feeling great as of a month ago. I am considering getting pregnant again but am afraid my IC will be worse after pregnancy...I'm afraid another pregancy will cause more nerve damage. I really feel my first pregnancy may have caused nerve damage even though I didn't have IC symptoms for 10 months after having my daughter. Is there anyone out there who has had a similar IC experience who has had a successful pregnancy and no exacerbation of symptoms postpartum and beyond? Any advice or info would be much appreciated.

    Peace & Health,

    Hi there Virginia (my mother's name... I love it)


    I don't know any of the answers to these questions. I am just as nervous and afraid. I want to start in the next two or three years... and I'm getting more and more afraid.

    There is a pregnancy journal on this website. If you go to the dropdown menu in the top right hand corner you can link to it. That journal gave me hope. It's only anecdotal, but I found it soothing.

    I'm sorry about your loss. I hope that things progress perfectly normally when you decide to try again. [img]smile.gif[/img]
