Hello all! Thank you for for sharing your stories. I have vin 1. Diagnosed 4 months ago. I've had lichen sclerosis for 10 years. I've never been diagnosed or had hpv symptoms so it may be lichen related.. But regardless it's VIN1. I just had laser ablation 3 days ago. Although the treatment was to the sides of my clitoris and my labia majora, my minora ( and clitoris) have swollen to an incredible size (3-4x normal size). The swelling is not improving with time. Its difficult to walk around with this bigness btwn my legs ... Idk how men do it. Lol. Thankfully I'm at home for 2 more days. I have burn marks and a bit of pain but my main concern is the swelling. Well except one black spot is a bit scary to look at. I can't imagine how it will heal. Is this type of swelling normal for this many days after laser? Has anyone else experienced heaving swelling for 3 or more days after laser?

Hello Ladies, I live in Australia,NSW. I've had lichen sclerosis for the past 7yrs,my first biopsy Showed nothing,through the years off and on I had this awful itchiness,especially at night I finally seen a dermatologist,had a biopsy and learnt I have precancerous cells,seen a gynaecologist and had lesions cut out. I had to get my stitches checked as I was quite sore,I was lucky to see the nurse and the the gynaecologist had a quick look and all was ok,BUT my results came back and I ?think she said I had Vin 111. She said I'll have to go and see a Dr in Sydney that specialises in this . I'll know more next Thursday,I'm so scared in not knowing what sort of surgery I'll require.

Hi lovedwight, Are you still using the frankincense blend? Is it still working for you? Can you give me a rough estimate of how many drops of each you would use in a roller bottle? I think I want to try it. I wonder if the frankincense touch that doterra has would be enough by itself

I am married and have twin girls (8) whothey keep me very busy, as you can imagine. Hoping recovery isn't too long and painful.   I hope you are doing well and thanks again for sharing your story!

I know this original post is so old... But the itching is insane! I had a vulvar lesion removed and it itched more than it hurt aftrewards. I felt better after putting coconut oil on. My docotr blew off the itching part. Oi! 

Take care VIN friends.

Hello, I know this post is from 5 years ago, but I was hoping I would somehow receive a response. I have had the same experience as what you said in this post and was hoping to find out how you are doing now. I am 20 years old and was diagnosed with VIN II 4 months ago. My gyno performed laser surgery to the Vulva and vagina 6 weeks ago. I am still in a lot of pain where I originally noticed something was wrong, so I will need to have the laser done again next month. That area is right below my clitoris. The opening of my vagina was also lasered but isn’t painful like that area. The new skin is so tight I fear I won’t be able to have sex again for a long time. It’s been 6 weeks and that area is still extremely painful. After you continued the use of the cream were you able to have sex again? Sorry for the personal questions but I am desperate for answers. Thank you
