In brief: IC
Flares can vary in frequency and need not to have a pattern if all the other painful conditions that co-exists with ic(endometriosis, vulvodynia, ibs, pelvic floor muscle dysfunction, etc) are treated properly.

In brief: Can't predict
No 2 cases of ic are the same.
May flare up very often or can provide u with prolonged periods of relief.Depends upon trggers for your ic, anxiety, stress, foods + beverages to be avoided.Adviseable to stay on meds if they control your symptoms.Some patients seem to require periodic bladder hydrodistensions some to acupunctureplease check: www.Interstitialcystitisassociation.Com website.
