For today’s video, we are going to be discussing unfusing your clitoris for better sensation with lichen sclerosus. I review three evidence-based ways to help unfuse your clitoris – e.g., clitoral myofascial release, non-surgical lysis of adhesions, and lysis of adhesions. Be sure to like this video and subscribe to our channel for more educational LS content.
This video is evidence-based; I draw on the medical literature to share what you need to know about clitoral health and lichen sclerosus. Importantly, what I share is my interpretation of the science and data.
