Hello. Could you tell me if I might have IC please? Have been diagnosed with vulvadynia, though not convinced. Have recently been getting white blood cells in urine, though not always nitrites and nothing on culture. Only symptom is burning pain. Antibiotics always help.
Thank you

If antibiotics are helping it would suggest that it’s not IC. Antibiotics don’t help with IC as there is no infection. I would suggest looking at imbedded infection. Cultures aren’t always accurate but there is somewhere that do a new test but it’s not available on the NHS. Sorry mind is a bit fuzzy tonight but I’m sure one of the moderators will be able to say what test it is x
