    I have recently been diagnosed with Lichen Sclerosus (LS) and was advised to treat it with ointment, but I have heard it can make intercourse difficult. Is there any alternative treatment available?

    A MonaLisa Touch vaginal laser has been used for the treatment of Vulvar Lichen Sclerosus with excellent results. This is a simple treatment performed in your Gynaecologist's rooms. There is no downtime, and symptoms do improve markedly. Three sessions are needed, five weeks apart and then top up on a 6-12 monthly basis.
