Long Time lurker, I don't post much...

But I had a few questions. My doctor thinks I may have Interstitial Cystitis. Anyone here familiar with that diagnosis or care to message me regarding what I am possibly getting into here? Will the pressure that the diva puts on my urethra (urinating is a little more difficult with it in) aggravate the UTI symptoms I already have worse?

Also, the doctors incorrectly gave me antibiotics for what they thought was a UTI, and it ended up unbalancing things down there. My doctor put me on a cream to help, for 5 days, and go figure, these are the 5 days my period is likely to be flowing. The cream I am on is metronidazole. Will it damage my cup? They already advise me to wear pads purely because there is an awful lot of this cream and supposedly it stains things. I just want to know if I need to wear pads throughout my period, or can I use my cup? Thanks guys!
