Relationship of Interstitial Cystitis to Vulvodynia

2014-07-24 14:20:04 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study is important in urologic nursing since many patients have interstitial cystitis (IC), a condition of frequency, urgency and pain affecting more than 1 million women in the United States. The vulva may actually be the site of some of the reported pain in women with IC, not the urethra or bladder. IC and vulvodynia can impact one's sexual functioning and diminish one's quality of life.

The purpose of this two-part study is to identify and clinically confirm the presence of vulvodynia in women diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis (IC).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A condition with recurring discomfort or pain in the URINARY BLADDER and the surrounding pelvic region without an identifiable disease. Severity of pain in interstitial cystitis varies greatly and often is accompanied by increased urination frequency and urgency.

A raised flat surface on which a patient is placed during a PHYSICAL EXAMINATION.

Inflammation of the URINARY BLADDER, either from bacterial or non-bacterial causes. Cystitis is usually associated with painful urination (dysuria), increased frequency, urgency, and suprapubic pain.

Systematic and thorough inspection of the patient for physical signs of disease or abnormality.

Symptoms of disorders of the lower urinary tract including frequency, NOCTURIA; urgency, incomplete voiding, and URINARY INCONTINENCE. They are often associated with OVERACTIVE BLADDER; URINARY INCOMPETENCE; and INTERSTITIAL CYSTITIS. Lower urinary tract symptoms in males were traditionally called PROSTATISM.
