Painful Bladder Syndrome
What It Is:
Painful Bladder Syndrome is a condition that causes people to have bladder pain and urinate often. Painful Bladder Syndrome is often called “bladder pain syndrome (BPS)” or “interstitial cystitis.”
BPS can happen in both men and women, but it is more common in women. Providers do not know what causes BPS, but some providers suspect it might be caused by abnormal changes in the lining of the bladder. Sometimes, BPS happens on its own. Other times, it starts after a person has:
●An infection of the urinary tract, or vagina
●Surgery on the bladder, pelvis, or back
●An injury to the pelvic area or buttocks
