  • Another IC Article

    Just read in the Family Circle July edition a small article on IC. It wasn't very big but it did describe the symptoms of IC and stated that as of now there is no cure for IC and that it takes most patients 5yrs to get a diagnoisis. Finally an article that tells the hard truth about IC.
