2 months ago I posted that I had had a vague diagnosis of 'possibly LS' from my GP and gynae.
I was not prescribed anything and told to come back if it became 'bothersome'. I have seen my GP today and she apologized for not having picked up on a highlit area in the letter to her from the gynae which suggested steroid cream! So theoretically I could have been on this for approx 4 months already which is infuriating. She has prescribed Betnovate and for me to come back in 4 weeks for a review and then possibly a stronger steroid. She was interested in the use of borax and did not dismiss it. She confirmed that my inner labia have partially fused as well as the valleys either side of my clitoris and that this has appeared to have progressed over the last few months since she first saw me back in March. Which of course, I knew. I had a lot of stress last year with caring for my mother and I am sure that is what progressed my symptoms from 4 years ago.
I talked to my GP about the psychological effect of having to witness an intimate part of your body 'deforming' and that my sex life is suffering with my husband now feeling it to be a 'medical' area! (I have to stress here that he is very understanding and still interested). And I told her this was not acknowledged enough by doctors. Of course, this being the UK's failing NHS, her response was this is due to lack of resources to address all the issues brought about by all diseases. I can see her point.
So it seems we need each other on these forums, if only to offload our worries. I know I am finding it a comfort of sorts to be able to do this.
