    I had my first one in December & my second one in January (6 weeks later). I had very bad itching & some  burning the first time that lasted about a week, improving slowly each day. I used lidocaine &. Vicodin for the pain & discomfort which helped. The second treatment was much better, only slight itching the first day, & I was back to normal by the 4th day. However, because I had such a bad reaction the first time, my urologist did less the second time. Also, my tissues had improved a lot, so that helped. Before treatment, I had issues with urgency, dryness & UTI's (still having UTI attacks, but she has me on a daily low dose antibiotic now). The other issues have improved a lot. I would highly recommend the Mona Lisa, but go to a urologist if you can, I just think they're better at this. Very few people have as bad a time as I had the first time, no one in her office had this, I'm told. So, don't be scared off by me, I would do it again, but have meds & lidocaine on hand just in case. Good luck.

    Hi Woop goon. I don't know if the Mona Lisa treatment is available in the UK. (I'm in Shropshire). I have been on vagifem for the last 5 or 6 years with no ill effects. I also use Vitamin E pessaries I get from the states. I manage! I am 68. I just think that the States are more interested in helping women with AV as in the UK it seems to be considered unimportant by a lot of medics. I think if you want the Mona Lisa treatment here you're going to have to pay a lot for it. It's certainly not available on the NHS. I wish the UK would take more interest in it but I think it's going to be a long time as it's not considered life threatening though it certainly is life diminishing! It also doesn't happen to men! 😁. Rant over. I hope you find someone who will do ghe mona lisa treatment. Be interested to hear if you do. All the best!

      Hi sallybongo. Thank you for your reply.

      Yes I will be paying for treatment , just wanted to " see" if there was anyone in the U.K. Who had had it done.

      My HRT specialist is seeing really good results with it, I don't think it will be on the NHS for many many years if ever , but I am only 50 ( had it since 46 ) and I am prepared to pay , the local oestrogen and HRT just aren't enough , as I have three bad episiotomy scars and it is working well for this type of condition re TMLT.

      My VA is quite bad , no moisture at all even with all the oestrogen I take and nerve damage , my specialist said it is proving very good for vulvodynia and vestibuledynia also.

      But yes it's not cheap about £2,000 ( interest free CC ) but there's so much I can't do , so if I get any improvement thy would be great.

      What they never told us , well my daughters are definitely aware , forearmed forewarned and all that.

      Hi Woop goon. I hope it will make a difference. I would like to hear how you get on as you sound very badly affected with it. I have had it for many years along with a bladder prolapse just to make life even more interesting! According to my doctor a bladder prolapse op can make things even worse so I struggle on. Some days are better than others. Hope you get treated very soon and I'm really interested in how it goes. Keep us posted! 😊
