In brief: Don't know

Ic is usually a matter discussed between patient and health care provider. However, having ic does not carry the stigmata of sexually transmitted disease.
Interestingly, there are a number of urologists who don't believe that ic can occur in chidren and it certainly can.

In brief: It is a common issue

It is relatively common problem but if a provider is not looking for the diagnosis it can be missed.
A puff questionnaire is a good screening tool and is often used to monitor therapy.
