Summary

Management of IC/BPS can be challenging given the lack of data and variability in symptoms experienced. The AUA guideline provides a starting point for management, but treatment should be individualized to each patient. Education is key for both providers and patients so there are reasonable expectations. Treatment should consist of both nonpharmacologic and pharmacologic options in a stepwise approach.
