I was diagnosed with lichen sclerosis 4 years ago and it is

I was diagnosed with lichen sclerosis 4 years ago and it is controlled with daily application of Eucerin. I am post-menopausal and do not use estrogen due to high risk factors for cancer. I had unexplained infertility and my two boys are adopted. Otherwise, I am in great shape. My only medications are a multi-vitamin, calcium, aspirin for arthritis in my neck and astelin nasal spray for seasonal allergies. The lichens never goes away, but does not bother me as I am not sexually active. My vaginal opening has shrunk so much that my doctor said that she may not be able to get a pap smear next year. What are the chances that this will become cancerous? Do I need to schedule regular biopsies? I have a general practitioner who sent me to a specialist for the initial diagnosis, but I have not been back to her. What are the chances that it will spread to other areas?JA: How long have you been dealing with this issue? Are you experiencing any numbness or tingling?Customer: 4 years. No numbness or tingling. Sometimes burning, but goes away with the moisturizing.JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: I had endometriosis which was removed while I was doing fertility treatments 30 years ago, but otherwise, I am very healthy and up to date on all screenings such as pap smears and colonoscopies. I am 58 years old.

I was diagnosed with dyspareunia a few days ago because I

I was diagnosed with dyspareunia a few days ago because I experience intense pain when my partner attempted penetration. Due to the pain, the penetration was unsuccessful. My gynecologist suggested that pain especially on the outside of the vagina is likely to have a psychological cause. I wanted to have intercourse and everything was consensual. So I am not sure what is wrong. If it is indeed not a medical issue causing the pain, what are the possible causes and what treatment should I seek, if any?So far I have seen treatments like sex therapy, using vaginal dilators and working with a pelvic floor physiotherapist to learn to control the muscles. But how can I know what treatment to seek, or can it just be not enough foreplay or maybe not enough lubricant is used?I am 21 and I hope to have a sex life, please help.
