I'm 57 and had LS for ooh I'm not sure, maybe 6 years now. I know some people here have considered the possibility of inherited LS. Well just today my 76 year old mum told me she was experiencing problems down below. I won't go into detail but she'd been examined by her doctor, told everything was very dry and prescribed betnovate twice a day for a week and a barrier cream as she's experiencing a lot of discomfort on urinating. Well keeping things as brief as I can I was of course alerted! She may or may not have LS but nevertheless I was able to give her lots of practical advice. Where I came unstuck was when she mentioned wearing incontinence pads. My first comment was 'don't' but she says she only wears them when going out. Now I know there have been threads on here about sanitary ware and I didn't really pay attention as I'm post menopause and it wasn't relevant to me. But has anyone any advice re incontinence pads bearing in mind mum kind of needs them to avoid embarrassment when out but that I feel they are irritating her discomfort currently. That is my main question. The inheritance thing HAS been re kindled in my mind but bearing in mind I started early 50's and in a few years have lost all my labia minora and my clitoris whilst mum at 76 has just begun some discomfort.
