Hi, I am 33 live in the UK and am happily married with three children.
I started with LS during my 3rd pregnancy in 2008 but wasn't diagnosed until Nov 2009 following a biopsy. It's surprising how very little GP's know about LS! I use dermovate but try to use this only when required as I'm worried about using a steroid in already such a delicate area, I found paladin (available from the US) to be soothing and 100% pure emu oil.
My sex life has suffered dramatically and depression set in. I am often swollen, and suffer with fissures and ulcers...oh and the dreaded itch. My vulva and anus have turned white and experience some tightening and I feel things have changed down there. Things seem worse during my period and if I'm stressed, been pretty bad recently following the loss of my parents. I was told LS is more common in over 60? Wish more research could be done as it's not nice to live with Looking for any one who wants to share their experinces or offer advice on anything that soothes symptoms!!!
