In brief: No

Interstitial cystitis is an inflammatory condition wherein the bladder is deficient in a 'slime layer' that protects the lining from irritating substances in the urine.
Almost like a 'diaper rash' on the inside. It can be managed and treated with dietary changes, oral medications and sometimes infusions of medicine into the bladder.
