    Sometimes intercourse is painful for me or the 24 hours following but I definitely only feel it in my bladder and the urgency frequency gets much worse. I would think if it radiates up your back it could be partially something else too like some of the other posters have mentioned.

    Intercourse is very painful for me. I've been taking Elmiron for about 7 months now and it really hasn't made a difference I wish it did though...It's awful!

    The only thing that has helped me with that is pelvic floor physical therapy! And yes, it is worth the work and money and embarrassment!

    yes, I was officially diagnosed in 2009. Although I have been having symptoms since 2006. Its possible painfull intercourse could be from endometriosis also. Its kinda hard to tell at this point

    Hi there! I can't really answer the question about Elmiron and painful intercourse. I personally haven't heard of it being linked to making intercourse easier. Maybe someone else might know something I don't? Elmiron is specifically for IC and helps provide a protective coating for the bladder. Have you had a potassium sensitivity test or cystoscopy to diagnose you with IC?

    Does Elmiron help with painfull intercourse?

    Im trying birth control to see if my painfull intercourse is coming from endo. Its a 3 month waiting period to see. But my gyn really thinks its coming from my bladder and suggested that I started elmiron right away. Its a deep pain like a punching pain and it radiates down my lower back. -thanks
