  • constant need to pee during sex

    Whenever I have sex, I feel like I'm being poked in the bladder (sorry for the description; I honestly don't know how else to describe it) and I feel the constant need to pee because of it. I pee before I have sex and that doesn't seem to help. I have tried different positions during sex but I still feel like my bladder is being "poked". Its uncomfortable and distracting and almost makes sex not enjoyable. Sometimes, I just have to stop in the middle to use the bathroom I was diagnosed with PFD so I don't know if that is related. Also I do have issues with frequency. Does anyone else have this issue? If you do, how do you overcome it so that sex is enjoyable for you but still make it enjoyable for your partner.


    I don't know where the proper place to post this is so sorry if its in the wrong category.

    Thanks

    I've had this happen many times. I never knew what to do about it except get up and empty my bladder. Are you in pt for the PFD? It's possible it's related to that. You may want to check with your pelvic physical therapist or gyno. This has been happening way less frequently for me since I had pelvic floor therapy.

        I know EXACTLY what you mean. I said the exact same thing about feeling like it's poking my bladder the other day. I also have PFD and wonder if it does have something to do with it. I get the frequency afterwards but it cures my burning
        I've also noticed the "poking bladder" feeling is usually following a menstrual cycle or a flair. (My hormones are out of their minds)
        It used to hurt really bad too but my hubby and I tried to do a lot of foreplay and "toys" just to stretch and keep the muscles from pushing (themselves or anything else) against my bladder.
        Hope this helps some!

          Me too

          I get it also, following a flare though. Hubby makes sure I am turend on and doesn't go as deep. Difficult because going shallow hurts my vv and deep hurts IC. Poor guy.

          @Christine, what is autoimune progesterone?

          Thanks

            Agree on the deep vs shallow
            and I'm allergic to the hormone women produce called progesterone. I think they may be the foundation of my IC. Fun fun. ha-ha

              I pee before, during, and after sex. Other than that, very specific positions seemed to be the only way for me to enjoy it. THe two most comfortable for me were spooning and (sorry to be graphic, trying to help) me lying face up on top of him. Cowgirl was the most painful for me, with missionary less so, and then from behind slightly better than that. :-/ I'm curious about other people because I'm wondering if it can tell us anything about our pain. I have the sensation that my bladder is being poked too, but I don't know if that is really happening, or if its just PFD?
              IC symptoms since Dec. 12 2010 after confirmed bladder infection "never went away." Recently also diagnosed with PCOS, piriformis syndrome, and pelvic floor dysfunction, sinus issues. I was in great health before fall 2010.
              Current medications: citalopram 40 mg, valium 2.5 mgs a night, lidocaine patch (for back pain), Prelief
              Therapies tried or continuing: stretches, walks, baths, internal massage, physical therapy, IC diet, IF unit, heating pad, mindfulness based stress reduction classes, cognitive therapy, books on IC and pelvic pain...

              Drugs Tried: the urinary analgesics, 4 kinds of muscle relaxants (including in suppository form), hydroxyzine, 3 kinds of TCA's, lyrica, cymbalta, 6 months elmiron, vesicare, antibiotics, prednisone (after sinus surgery), NSAIDS...
              Supplements: over 20 herbs and supplements, including regimens from TCM practitioner and a naturopathic MD
              Intravesical/Surgical: 3 instills of Uracyst, 2 “rescue instills” lidocaine, bicarb, elmiron; 1 self-instill of marcaine, a steroid, bicarb and heparin; 1 hydrodistention and capsaicin instill (made me worse, still recovering two months later...)

                Behind is probably my best position for pain-free. Missionary is eh... hit and miss, I've tried the spooning position and it killed my vulv.
                As for bladder pokes I don't know. It feels like it but with IC/vulv/PFD people like us, who can tell. It's just another fun step in our journeys.

                  Sabrina00,

                  I know the pain you are describing.

                  IC can be challenging, but it doesn't have to ruin the experience. Why not let it enhance it? Communication is key. Talk to him..After all, what is the worst that could happen? A great solution would be to use a waterproof pad. Good luck! :-0

                    Re: constant need to pee during sex

                    I have the same thing. I have to stop multiple time during to go to the toilet. I find different positions help a bit and taking deep breaths and reasurring yourself "that you just went to the toilet you don't need to go again" I don't have sex often for this reason I know what to expect and its devestating but there's nothing I can do just make the most of it when you do get the chance.

                      I get this when I'm having a bad PFD week, and if the symptoms are all urgency IMHO I would say it's definitely the PFD doing it. Any kind of banging is going to cause the muscles by the bladder to spasm and freak out. If physical therapy is not in the cards, you might be able to head off trouble beforehand by doing some work with a Therawand (like 8 hours ahead), and downing some Toviaz maybe an hour or so before getting friendly. Maybe some Pyridium also if it's really bad. Those help me
                      Diagnosed with IC in 2005, PFD in 2016. My sister has had IC for 21 years and our mother over 30. 66 years of bladder fun combined!
