I've been reading around and am starting to think that LS describes all my sympotoms but I thought if i list them here someone might be able to tell me whether it does sound like it or not.
Basically, the most noticeable one is splitting. I've been with my boyfriend 5 years and been basically unable to have sex for about 3.5 of them. The skin around the vaginal entrance feels really really tight, even when the muscles are totally relaxed, and my perineal skin leading down from the vaginal opening usually splits a little bit (not deeply) when my partner tries to penetrate me, even with me controlling it and almost swimming in lube. the times we have managed to get it in, sometimes i will actually enjoy it for a bit once its in and the pain of the little tear sort of gets overridden if you know what i mean. so i know for a fact the muscles are relaxed, but then sometimes the skin will just split suddenly anyway. so i'm convinced its the skin and nothing to do with me tensing the muscles.
i noticed also that i have little splits often up the sides of the clitoral hood, sort of between the outer labia and the inner ones, in the crease. i used to think i just got sore there but after inspection realised they were papercut-looking things. at the top of where this happens i have sort of white blotches on my skin, although they don't look like the pictures i have seen of LS so that's why i'm not sure.
my perineum will also split during bowel movements and sometimes i will even feel a little split leading backwards from the anus up towards the butocks kinda thing. i have often noticed that when i look to see when i've split, the skin aroudn my anus and particularly on my perineum does look whitey and dry, both before and after washing. which i do with just water by the way, and use aqueous cream.
sometimes i will even just be sitting on the sofa or something and if i sit with my foot underneath me i realise i am sore from splitting when i havent even attempted sex or been to the loo. i also appear to get thrush very easily although that could obviously be totally unrelated.
if anyone thinks this does sound like LS then please say? cos my doctor basically said she couldnt see anything wrong, i think she didnt believe me. but i want to know if i should be more pushy.
