Has anyone had 5 Mona Lisa treatments for dryness

Posted , 5 users are following.

Have had 4 Mona Lisa laser treatments.   Has helped a lot.  Stopped using Premarin and have been using Revaree hyralauronic acid suppositories for a month.  Got my first uti in 10 months.  Still dry though.  Not having intercourse.  Any one experience something like this?

    I have to have Mona Lisa every 10 to 12 months.   Touch ups as things  deteriorate 

    First thing that happens is I get a UTI and then I know

    So far this year it’s been nine months.  Seems to be a lot less  posts on atrophy  since the Mona Lisa has been out it works for me

      I just had my first treatment March 22 and the other 3 all 6 weeks apart.  Now I have uti and the dryness goes away but comes back. I am 75 percent better but not there yet. Contemplating a 5 treatment

    Why did you stop using premarin altogether? I just completed 3 laser treatments but when I use the Yuvafem, it seems too much and burns now. So I stopped. 

    Perhaps you need some sort of vaginal estrogen over time?

    The first 2 treatments went well and I was able to reduce the Yuvafem down to twice a week rather than 3 times a week. The third treatment I had a UTI and some inflammation. I am trying to get stabilized so not sure yet.

    Hi Fern

    I had 3 sessions last year approx 8 weeks Sept to Dect and was 90% symptom free until June when I got a UTI and VA symptoms back.  I went for a top up treatment in August and was quite blistered and sore until this week when things appear to have settled.  My consultant said some woman are unlucky and have to go every 6 months others may be a year or more.  At £700 a go I have resigned myself to saving £100 a month in case I have to go back early next year.  I do still take Vagifem and use Key E pessaries and coconut oil etc.  Intercourse is a once a week affair at best and I am glad when it is over as I do burn afterwards.
