Treating Lichen Sclerosus With Hormone Replacement in Austin

Lichen sclerosus is a fairly uncommon yet painful skin condition that can severely affect many areas of a woman’s life.At Austin Love Doctor™, we are committed to helping those who suffer from lichen sclerosus identify the issue and find relief from the symptoms.

With a combination of treatments and therapies, including hormone replacement in Austin, we can reduce or even eliminate the signs of lichen sclerosus in our patients.

Below, we go through hormone replacement’s role in our approach to treating lichen sclerosus at our Austin clinic.

What are the symptoms of lichen sclerosus?

The exact causes of lichen sclerosus are unknown, but the condition most commonly occurs in women just before puberty or after menopause.

Signs and symptoms of lichen sclerosus on the genitals and perianal region include:

  • Patches of smooth, shiny, white skin
  • Painful sex
  • Intense itching and burning
  • Scarring
  • Bleeding, tearing, or blistering

How can hormone replacement in Austin help?

Research suggests that an overactive immune system and/or unbalanced hormones play a role in causing lichen sclerosus. It may also be a genetic condition, so your chances for developing the condition are higher if your mother or other female relatives experienced it as well.

Part of our integrated approach to treating lichen sclerosus involves hormone replacement in Austin. Our board-certified physicians provide comprehensive hormone level testing to determine where you may be imbalanced.

Using custom BioTE® bioidentical hormone pellets, created based on your exact hormonal needs, we provide you with the proper dose of hormones once every 3 months, and in between, you don’t have to think about it. Your body uses what it needs, when it needs it.

What other treatments are paired with hormone replacement therapy?

In order to treat all of the symptoms of lichen sclerosus, we turn to other procedures available at our office. After a series of treatments, custom-tailored to your unique needs and the severity of your condition, you will begin to find the relief you have been seeking!

In addition to hormone replacement in Austin, we also perform O-Shots® and use the diVa® vaginal laser. Learn more about these treatments here.

Can I continually monitor my hormone levels and receive hormone replacement in Austin?

Yes! At the Austin Love Doctor, we are proud to be a full-service hormone replacement provider in Austin. All hormones are managed by Emily Porter, M.D.

Hormones are chemical messengers that control many of your body’s most important functions. Imbalances in these hormones can cause fatigue, moodiness, sexual dysfunctions, and even lichen sclerosus. Maintaining a proper hormone balance is essential to maintaining a happy, healthy lifestyle.
