A UTI bacteria not very likely because women have ac1.5 inch urethra and men 7-9 or more so anatomy protects men.

Can foods worsen your IC yes they can. However, diets review for the long term show no symptomatic improvement with dietary changes. Now you may experience a worsening of your symptoms with certain foods and you acknowledge this in your question. It would be prudent to avoid these foods but that is very difficult for most patients to comply with for the long term. I personally feel the improvement attained only by a small percentage (20%) is not worth the trouble in the long run.
