Message: Dear Dr. Roby, I have read through your site, including FAQ and your Blog trying to find answers to my own questions because I\’m sure you are very busy to be answering another email, but, I still feel confused. I was diagnosed with IC about 3 years ago, but have been having problems for about 8 years ago. The first pain started when I was 21, I am 30 now. I have always shown signs of hormone imbalance and was put on birth control pill when I was 15 (after my first \”period\” never stopped bleeding). I tried to go off the pill a couple times in college but wouldn’t\’t get a period at all, or when I got one it wouldn’t\’t stop. About the third time I tried to stop taking the pill is when the pain came. Every time I went back on the pill the pain went away (but the pill causes MAJOR side effects for me). I am married (IC is RUINING my marriage) and had a child 4 1/2 years ago. When I was pregnant every thing got MUCH better. My pain is constantly at least a 5 or 6 but frequently 7 or 8. I really want to try your drops, and possibly go to TX to see you (your 12 hours away,

Dear PF:

I really think the progesterone is part of the problem. It might make some areas of your body feel better but it is strongest during the week before your period and that is when you have your worst problems. It sounds like you also react to estrogen.

We deal with these issues by blocking the allergy to progesterone and estrogen while slowly increasing your tolerance to estrogen with drops as well. I suggest you order my book from Amazon or download it on to your Amazon Kindle. There are pretty clear suggestions in it for IC diet and exercise. Oder the ProCALM drops (with estrogen added) and when they arrive call me and I guide you through your initial doses in the vial marked “ProCALM 5″.

See if your doctor will order lab tests for estradiol, testosterone (total and free), progesterone and DHEA.

Warm regards,

Dr. Roby
