Kintsugi: How I Learned to Love my Vulva Again

Kintsugi: How I Learned to Love my Vulva Again

Introduction Lichen sclerosus can cause architectural changes. I explain what this means in detail here, but briefly, architectural changes are changes that occur to the vulva that physically change the way it looks. For example, some folks lose some or all of their labia minora. These changes can cause a lot of distress. You may feel like part of your identity has been removed. You may feel less 'feminine' than you did before the changes. Some folks (myself included) feel broken because of how our vulvas look. If this resonates with you, you are not alone. In today's post, we are stepping away from evidence-based information and science to have a heartfelt post about architectural changes and a beautiful philosophy and art - Kintsugi - that helped me move from feeling broken and ugly to feeling beautiful and worthy.  I hope it creates a healing and transformative shift in you, as it did…

The Clitoris & Lichen Sclerosus: What You Need To Know

Introduction My last blog post looked at architectural changes and lichen sclerosus. This week, we dive even deeper into this topic. Specifically, I am discussing the clitoris, clitoral health, and what you can do if you have any of these clitoral problems as a component of your LS. If you missed last week’s post, you will want to go back and read that first as this post builds on that foundation.  This post is evidence-based; I draw on the medical literature to share what you need to know about clitoral health and lichen sclerosus. I will be sharing my personal journey later in the year. Quick Recap on Architectural Changes LS typically does not affect the vagina. Instead, it affects the skin of the vulva. All those parts that make up your vulva are a part of your anatomy, and that is what is meant by architecture. So what about…

She Reversed Severe Clitoral Adhesions Without Surgery

In this blog, I’ll share information about clitoral fusing and introduce you to a fantastic woman. This warrior was able to reverse her severe clitoral adhesions without a medical procedure. And she did it within a few months.  One of the most common questions I get when people are first diagnosed with Lichen Sclerosus is: What will this do to my body? The next question is: Can I do anything about it? Unfortunately, having Lichen Sclerosus (LS) puts you at risk for vulvar changes, including fusing/scarring.  But here’s the good news: Surgery isn’t the only option for treatment. Of course, everyone’s LS journey is different, and what works for one person may not work for another. But knowing all of your options can help you decide what’s best for you and give you conservative measures to try before opting for surgery.  Let’s learn a little more about clitoral fusing/scarring. What…
