In this video, we are going to discuss lichen sclerosus and period products. This video isn't evidence-based; there are no research articles on which period products are better or worse for LS. Instead, this video is based on anecdotes; I draw on wisdom from the LS community and my personal experience with menstrual products. I share what to avoid, and review each type of period product. I also share some tips and tricks for LS while on your period.
