  • Urethral/Urinary pain with bowel movements?

    This is really random and I suspect Pelvic Floor Dysfunction on top of I.C., but does anyone else have this, why do we have it, and has anything helped you?

    I get this during a flare up. My urethra is always more irritated after a bowel movement, it can last for hours. I think it has to do with PFD and the act of pushing( even when not constipated, just getting it out)! It’s annoying! I find when my flare ups start to die down, so does this symptom.

      I used to have it all the time but it also happened before having a bowel movement. I realized it was mainly due to being constipated. So, I stay away from anything made with flour, no potatoes, rice ect. Mostly fruit, veggies, yoguart and such.

        The nerves and muscles are so close that it's not surprising to have bowel and bladder symptoms effect each other.
