In brief: Yes

Symptoms of ic such as urgency, frequency, burning and bladder/ pelvic pain can exacerbate after sexual activity.
Many of these symptoms are related to pelvic floor hypertonicity, or spasm of the pelvic muscles. Women with this condition often experience an exacerbation of symptoms for 24-72 hours after a sexual encounter. Pelvic floor pt can help.
