Just as symptoms for painful bladder syndrome vary, so do treatments. Treatment options can include:
- Oral medications
- Nerve stimulation to reduce pelvic pain and decrease frequent urination
- Bladder stretching
- Direct prescription insertion in bladder
- Surgery (in rare cases)
Patients may have to experience several treatments before they find the one that works for them. Sometimes, at-home treatments like dietary changes, bladder training, pelvic floor exercises or stress reduction techniques aid in reducing symptoms of painful bladder syndrome.
