Hi everyone, Whilst I was told for 18 months that I have got vaginal Atrophy, then the gynaecologist said I had lichen sclerosus, I have been looking at my symptoms again on Google and actually they fit in with interstitial cystitis. Especially given that the HRT didn't work for me. But this IC is a lot about bladder discomfort and pain which I have a lot of, as well as wanting to wee all the time, which also affects me a lot. I presumed the vaginal soreness was nothing to do with it but on speaking to girls at an IC forum, they say they suffer with that too. So I'm seriously wondering if this could be my answer and not V A. Reading up about it on Google, it mentions not eating or drinking anything acidic. No tomatoes etc. So I don't know if it was just co-incidence or not but on Friday I had tomato soup for lunch - I knew nothing about the IC at this time. And I was really sore and uncomfortable on Friday afternoon. I will see if there is an IC forum here
