Story

Why Are We Here?

World Lichen Sclerosus Awareness Day is a day to bring attention. Attention to a condition that affects as many as 1 in 70 vulva owners worldwide. Despite this, it is still considered “rare”.

It takes an average of 5 to 15 years for a diagnosis due to misdiagnosis or it going undiagnosed. This is dangerous because Lichen Sclerosus is progressive and wreaks havoc on people’s bodies, minds, relationships, and souls. Learn more about LS on our World Lichen Sclerosus Awareness Day page.

Lichen Sclerosus Support Network’s dedication to shining a light on this condition has just begun. As we celebrate our second World Lichen Sclerosus Day as an organization, we are here to provide a safe and comforting community to all affected. Our programs and events give patients and practitioners the information they need to get people an earlier diagnosis.

What can you expect?

10:30 AM - 12:00 PM EST / 7:30 AM - 9:00 AM PST

We’ve seen how the proper Lichen Sclerocus education and support have brought people from despair and anxiety to peace and joy. We want you to hear it straight from them because you can be next.

You will hear from a reproductive-aged woman who thought her dreams of having another child were ruined after suffering two miscarriages and then being diagnosed with Lichen Sclerosus. And a post-menopausal woman who had all but given up on ever finding love again because LS and VIN had all but destroyed her vulva.

Hear how working with LSSN has completely changed their lives for the better.

This will be followed by a short presentation by Dr. Ulrike Dehaeck from the BC Centre for Vulvar Health in British Columbia, Canada, after which we will have about 40 minutes of Q&A.

8 PM - 9 PM EST / 5 PM - 6 PM PST

Can’t make it to the earlier session? No worries. Join Dr. Jill Krapf from the Centers for Vulvovaginal Disorders in Washington, DC,  later in the day as she answers your questions for an hour.

If you’re in the market for quality vulva products, purchase from our World Lichen Sclerosus Awareness Day partner SweetSpot Labs.

Sweet Spot Labs is on a mission to elevate vulvar skincare and break the stigma around vulvas. For the second year in a row, they will donate all online proceeds from shop.sweetspotlabs.com on January 17, 2023, to LSSN in honor of World Lichen Sclerosus Awareness Day in their commitment to helping vulva owners become educated about their bodies.

In partnership, we have created the Lichen Sclerosus Bundle, a mix of SweetSpot Lab and LSSN products.

What’s in the Lichen Sclerosus Bundle?

It is crucial for vulva owners with LS to not only care for their vulvas but check them at least once a month. We understand there are many reasons this can bring fear, shame, and anxiety. The Lichen Sclerosus Bundle strives to make things easier.

The Lichen Sclerosus Bundle includes:

We want to give you the tools you need to make vulva checks and caring for your vulva pleasurable and a form of self-care. Purchasing the Lichen Sclerosus Bundle separately will cost you $80 USD/113$ CAD.

But in honor of World Lichen Sclerosus Awareness Day, we’re providing this fabulous bundle of products for $46 USD/$56 CAD!

Get your Lichen Sclerosus Bundle and set up your cart now. Then check out on January 17, so you not only help yourself but others with LS too.

Thank you!
