Introduction to Vulva Checks for Lichen Sclerosus
In this video, we are going to discuss vulva checks for lichen sclerosus. I start by discussing why they are so important. I share what you need to do one, how to do one, and what you need to look out for in terms of lichen sclerosus. Additionally, I review two ways to document important changes and what to do if you suspect your LS is progressing.
