So I've had recurrent yeast infections, itchyness, dry skin down there cuts, the gross skin. I thought it was from shaving. (And should i teframe from shaving? I feel disgusting when i don't??) But it's gotten worse and my period has gotten shorter so worried I went to the doctor. She took one look at me and referred me to a gyno cause she says I have lichen sclerosus and doesn't want to prescribe the wrong thing. By everything I've read I'm almost positive I have it even though I'm only 25. I have always kind of been in pain when I have sex. Not so much during but it's always been hard to start and after a while it starts hurting id have to tell him to stop on some occasions.. I never got why I thought it's because I'm very small framed I'm under 5'. So it made even more sense when I read that too. I scheduled an appointment with a gyno but I'm terrified of the biposy. Do I have to have it to be treated? How painful is it? Is it an in and out procedure? I'm so worried. I feel I've had this problem about a year but I didn't start getting the patches until a few months ago... I thought it could possibly be but no dr ever told me even after countless other tests I have no infection or stds so atleast I'm glad someone could tell me that. I'm just worried. And I'm scared or rather embarrassed and worried to tell my boyfriend. Any advice to anyone with this?
