  • pregnancy with pfd and ic

    hi there,
    i was wondering if pregnancy worsens pfd symptoms in the long run? or if its just a short term thing?

    Actually not usually because pregnancy hormones tend to relax tighter muscles so that they can stretch, support and carry a baby... so I would expect that it could help. Any doubts though, please talk to your physical therapist!

    Would you like to talk with someone about your IC struggles? The ICN now offers personal coaching sessions that include myself, Julie Beyer RD on the diet and Dr. Heather Howard on Sexuality.

      Helped mine. It was worse just for a few weeks after birth, then improved again. He's almost 2 months. Pregnancy increases blood flow to that area.
