I am a 40 year old female. I have been to my Doctors over the last few months and have been told I have Lichen sclerosus, and need a biopsy, last week I was told my Bladder has stress incontinence today I had a scan that revealed a damaged fallopian tube and a cyst or something.
I have sufferd with pains in my lower abdomen for nearly 3 years since having an emergency c section.
My monthly cycle is very irregular sometimes I bleed every 2 weeks, and sometimes the blood looks orange and is painfull and clotty.
Could all these things be related? I am really worried about this it seems that my undercarriage has all but given out on me.
Basically I'm asking if there could be a serious underlying reason that could cause all this.

  • Lichen sclerosus of the genital skin should be treated. In men surgical intervention is often successful...less so in women. Current treatment for women centers around routine applications of corticosteroid cream to the affected areas of the external genitals, regardless of whether they are itchy or not.Have you had more than one child? This can certainly be a factor in stress incontinence as the bladder frequently gets "repositioned" as a result of pregnancies. Perhaps the "damage" to your fallopian tube is playing a part in your irregular and painful menstrual cycles. Whether it also plays a part in the occasional unusual color of your menses is uncertain.It certainly doesn't sound like "your whole undercarriage has let go". You should definitely have the biopsy re: the Lichen sclerosus and also have a more definitive status of your fallopian tube and any cyst that may require treatment. It sounds like a lot but, in reality, it may not be that bad.Be well!! John
