Interstitial Cystitis

IC, painful intercourse, worse with orgasm, pain increases before period, on estrogen (feels better at higher doses) and also takes progesterone. Dear LW: Check the blog entries on my site. Hundreds of women have used my ProCALM drops to combat the discomfort of IC. Essentially you describe a hormone allergy. Progesterone is most active just before your period and when you ovulate. High levels of estrogen block its effect. I suggest you keep taking your estradiol but stop the progesterone at once. Get some ProCALM drops and call me when they arrive. We will send you a copy of my book Maybe...

Interstitial cystitis treatment

Posted by on Dec 8, 2010 in hormone allergy | Comments Off

My illness started two years ago when I believe I started into meonpause. I was 51 and my sympotms were urgency and frequency. The pain in my bladder started getting worse and became intolerable. Pain could be a 10. Been to many doctors and have had a hysterectomy that was precancer. I have been fighting an illness I believe is hormonal based/thyroid related. My diet is restricted to vegetables and meats. I drink purified water and chamomile tea. That is it. I still struggle with vaginal pain and thyroid symptoms and my body vibrates and hums especially at night. I am at my wits ends. I feel...

ProCALM Drops Stopped Period

Posted by on Nov 23, 2010 in hormone allergy | Comments Off

Dear Dr. Roby, Seven years ago I was involved in a car accident and since then I have had chronic pains in my pelvic region. I have done a lot of tests and they came back normal so my doctors suspected that I may have damage nerves. I have tried more natural approaches such as acupuncture and yoga but nothing works. I have a lot of burning and pain during urination and constant stabbing pain in the pelvic region every moment I am awake. I am begging my doctors to just remove my bladder and womb as I feel the pains are coming from there. Presently I am on Prozac, Valium, Elavil, Detrusitol,...

Interstitial Cystitis

Hello Dr. Roby. Do you remember me? I am in Trinidad. I got the ProCALM Drops and gave it to my girlfriend. Whenever she used it, it worked for a couple of hours. There was no pain from her bladder whatsoever. I thought it was a miracle. The problem was that it only lasted a few hours. Then she had a seizure and has not had a period since. She was hospitalized for the seizure and has not taken any ProCALM Drops since. As you can see, nothing worked for her. I wonder if Dr. Roby would be kind enough to advise her. She is in so much pain she is trying to get her bladder removed by surgery.I...

IC

Posted by on Oct 21, 2010 in hormone allergy | Comments Off

Message: Dr Roby, I am a 45 yr old female and have had IC for 2 yrs. I am currently taking a daily progesterone (bio identical) hormone cream – 50 mg. After a saliva test it was found that I am Estrogen dominant – therefore my Dr. is countering with the progesterone cream – I have been on this course for about 9 months and I have had no IC relief. Any suggestions? Dear Ms. L: My first suggestion would be to stop the progesterone cream I think most IC is caused by an allergic reaction to progesterone. I would suggest you order my ProCALM Drops (see IC on my website). Call me...

IC and Bioidentical Hormones

Posted by on Oct 12, 2010 in hormone allergy | Comments Off

I started experiencing the symptoms of IC 4 years ago during menopause. Shortly after I also had a complete hysterectomy (unnecessary). I have been going from treatment to treatment since then with no lasting relief. I constantly have pain, burning and urgency, sleeping is quite poor, and I am susceptible to UTI’s. I tried bioidentical HRT but couldn’t’t tolerate it. I’ve tried so many things without breakthrough. I am a professional artist who can’t paint with all of this pain. Please, can you help me? Sincerely, JT Dear JT: If you read the comments about IC on my...
