Femetry and men

Exploring Interstitial Cystitis in men.

Femetry and men man

Femetry and menFemetry is the only doctor-formulated, multipoint system that targets the symptoms of Interstitial Cystitis, also known as Bladder Pain Syndrome (IC/BPS). IC/BPS is largely understudied.

As a result, there are limited treatment options and not much information available for patients or medical professionals.

IC/BPS affects millions across the globe. In the U.S. alone, this condition disproportionately affects women (nearly 8 million) compared to men  (nearly 4 million). However, regardless of gender, Femetry is an effective support system for IC/BPS symptoms. We also provide a wealth of educational resources that are beneficial to men and women.

Understanding Interstitial Cystitis in men.

Similar to women, diagnosis of IC/BPS in men can be challenging. IC/BPS can mimic the symptoms of other other urinary conditions, such as prostatitis or UTIs.

A comprehensive evaluation typically involves:

  • Medical history: Detailed discussion of symptoms, medical history, and any potential triggers or exacerbating factors.
  • Physical exam: A thorough physical examination is conducted, including a pelvic exam, to assess for any signs of inflammation or tenderness.
  • Urinalysis: A urine test that looks for signs of infection or other abnormalities.
  • Cystoscopy: A procedure in which a thin, flexible tube with a camera is inserted into the bladder to visualize the bladder wall and rule out other conditions. Often, doctors combine this procedure with a hydrodistention, where they fill the bladder with a solution.

Symptoms in men.

Men with IC/BPS may experience symptoms slightly differently than women.

Common symptoms include:

  • Bladder and/or pelvic pain: Persistent discomfort or pain in the bladder area, often described as a constant pressure or ache. This may radiate to the lower abdomen, groin, or perineum.
  • Urinary urgency: An urgent need to urinate, even with small volumes of urine.
  • Urinary frequency: Men with IC/BPS may find themselves urinating more often, including waking up multiple times during the night to urinate (nocturia).
  • Pain during urination: Some men may experience pain or a burning sensation while urinating, similar to a urinary tract infection (UTI).

Potential causes of IC in men.

Researchers are continuously exploring the true causes of IC/BPS. Currently, they’ve hypothesized several factors that may contribute to its development.

  • Defective bladder lining: Dysfunction of the protective lining of the bladder may allow irritants to penetrate the bladder wall. This leads to inflammation and pain.
  • Nerve damage: Possible injury or trauma to the urinary tract could damage the nerves in that area. Moreover, some people have nerve abnormalities that cause heightened sensations of pain and urgency.
  • Autoimmune reactions: IC/BPS may occur when the immune system wrongly attacks the bladder tissue, possibly due to an autoimmune response.
  • Genetics: There may be a predisposition to developing IC/BPS.
  • Inflammation: Chronic inflammation in the bladder and surrounding pelvic region may contribute to the development and persistence of IC/BPS symptoms.

IC/BPS management and treatment.

There is no cure for IC/BPS. However, there are several management strategies that can help alleviate symptoms and improve quality of life.

  • Bladder training: These techniques help gradually increase the intervals between urination and reduce urinary urgency.
  • Pelvic floor physical therapy: Exercises and techniques to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles and relieve pelvic pain.
  • Medications: Oral medications, bladder instillations, or nerve pain medications may be prescribed to help manage pain, reduce inflammation, and improve bladder function.
  • Dietary changes: Some people find relief by avoiding certain foods and beverages that can irritate the bladder, such as caffeine, alcohol, acidic foods, and spicy foods.
  • Stress management: Stress and anxiety can exacerbate symptoms, so stress-reduction techniques, such as mindfulness, meditation, and relaxation exercises, may be beneficial.
  • Supplements: It’s important that your body is receiving enough nourishing ingredients to help soothe specific IC/BPS symptoms. Discover which ingredients work best.
