What’s the best lube for Lichen Sclerosus?

https://youtu.be/P9edyDq6Ue0 Have you ever wondered what lube is best for Lichen Sclerosus? Perhaps you felt overwhelmed by the massive selection of lube options online and had no clue what to buy? Have you ever wondered what you should look for and avoid in a lube? If yes, this is the episode for you! Today I am here with my amazing friend and fellow LS warrior, Jaclyn, from The Lost Labia Chronicles, and we are going to be talking about lubrication, artificial lubrication, that is. But before we jump into this, click here to subscribe to The Lost Labia Chronicles, which dives into sex, mental health, and Lichen Sclerosus.

Is Lichen Sclerosus Lowering Your Sex Drive?

Is Lichen Sclerosus Lowering Your Sex Drive?

*Just a quick warning, I will be talking about how Lichen Sclerosus affects our sex and sex drive. If you are sensitive to that, I completely understand, but this may not be the blog/podcast for you. **Another caveat. This episode is geared towards women with moderate to mild Lichen Sclerosus and not for those with severe Lichen Sclerosis (i.e., those with fusing across the vestibule/vaginal opening) or those with vaginismus or vulvodynia. I’m excited to bring some fresh insights to the podcast after our Lichen Sclerosus virtual meet-up. As many of you living with Lichen Sclerosus already know, Lichen Sclerosus can negatively impact our sex drive; sometimes, it stops it altogether. This week we dive into the topic of Lichen Sclerosus, how it can lower our sex drive, and, most importantly, how we can become empowered to get it back! During our Lichen Sclerosus Virtual Meetup, I discovered a trend…

How to have BETTER sex even though you have Lichen Sclerosus.

How to have BETTER sex even though you have Lichen Sclerosus.

Just a quick warning, I will be talking about sexual things. If you are sensitive to that I completely understand but this may not be the blog for you. I also want to set proper expectations. Lichen Sclerosus has many symptoms and progressions. Unfortunately, there are too many and span too many degrees for me to cover in one article. This piece will focus on women who do not suffer from severe fusing or other sexual complications that may require surgery. To honor you that are suffering these awful symptoms, I hope to bring in someone knowledgeable about these cases. I do not feel comfortable speaking on it because those are not my experiences and I am sensitive to your plight. Does Lichen Sclerosus Affect Our Sex Life?  How does having Lichen Sclerosus change our sex life? How do we talk to our partners about sex? What can we do to make…
