Anyone know if bladder infections and yeast infections are common for IBS people? Since May of last year everytime I go to the docter I either have one of the other. Two days ago, another bladder infection. My doc says another bladder scan if this continues. All replies are appreciated. Thanks for all your support!!!!Patty

Hi there. Your message caught my eye. This is my first post so I hope this works. I started checking out this site b/c I believe I may have IBS. I'm 29/Female and 4 years ago I was diagnosed with Intersitial Cystitis. The medical definition is: Interstitial cystitis is a chronic, and often severe, inflammation of the bladder wall, the cause of which is unknown. Primary symptoms are urinary frequency, urgency, and, for some, severe lower abdominal or perineal pain.The reason I wanted to bring this to your attention is b/c I always thought I had a small bladder and constantly went to the doctor for bladder infections. I nearly lost my mind and insisted they figure me out. A lot of people say that people who suffer from both IBS and IC do so b/c they are related with low immune systems (there's a longer explanation). You should bring this up to your doctor perhaps. Also for more info you can check out www.ic-network.com.Hope this helps!

I suffered from frequent (non specific) bladder infections at the age of 8 until my early twenties, when I started to drink mainly water. I have very infrquent episodes now which is just as well, as my IBS symptoms started in my early 30's!I wonder if there is some sort of link here?

Yes, I've had bladder infections/irritations since I was 10. Sometimes the doctors will find an infection, somestimes not. Caffine brings it on most of the time, but not always. Also, I have overactive bladder...........ah, if only my metabolism worked as good as my bladder. Holly

I've had good luck with Cranberry Juice and lots of water when it comes to defeating bladder infections. Irritations of any kind can provoke a bladder infection, including everything from constipation to sexual stimulation.
