sigh.......I was recently a healthy, attractive, pretty happy mom and wife. In the past month, I have developed interstital cystitis which is non infectious but feels like a 24hr UTI. I went to a pelvic/urology specialist and they want me to have a biopsy of my vulva which is showing signs of atrophy (!!!!) and possibly Liken sclerosis- a freaky skin disorder that causes miserable itchiness. Both IC and Likens are thought to be autoimmune disorders.I apparently have low estrogen which is causing the atrophy (again I say !!!!!!!). I also tend towards estrogen dominance/low progesterone. Ugh. I am feeling like an old messed up person. Trying to stay positive.
Anyway- there are many important details I am leaving out but at first glance- anyone have any bright ideas?
I am starting my nettle infusions tomorrow.
