Interstitial Cystitis Association

Health AwardsThe Interstitial Cystitis Association (ICA) is the only nonprofit charitable organization dedicated solely to improving the quality of healthcare and lives of people living with interstitial cystitis (IC).

IC is recurring pelvic pain, pressure, or discomfort in the bladder and pelvic region, often associated with urinary frequency (needing to go often) and urgency (feeling a strong need to go).

IC can affect anyone. More than 12 million people in the US have IC:

  • Women: 3 to 8 million
  • Men: 1 to 4 million
  • Children: prevalence data are not known

Your messages to me were so encouraging and took away the horrible loneliness and panic that I had been living with.
