Help - PFD in pregnancy
Hoping someone here can help.
I've been having IC and vulvodynia symptoms for the past 5 years, severely since last year. I'm increasingly convinced I have PFD too. I'm 27 weeks pregnant and the pain has been getting worse of late. I think some of this is probably down to PFD as I have a lot more shooting pains, particularly on movement, than I did beforehand with 'just' (ahem) my bladder pain. My midwife has told me this is rubbish as my pelvic floor should be stretching out so it should help the pain? Is she nuts?
I have an appointment with my uro in 2 days and I want to get him to refer me to a pelvic floor therapist. Where can I find some evidence to back up my thoughts that I a) have PFD (on top of everything) and b) therapy would help.
I live in the UK and despite much searching can find no links for any therapists that specialise in this type of PFD (as opposed to incontinence - which is hugely frustrating - if I could switch my constant pain for incontinence I would in a heartbeat).
Any thoughts on whether PFD can worsen in pregnancy and how to force the medics to DO SOMETHING would really help.

Could you call someone here at the IC Network? Maybe they know. They are wonderful here.
