Naava Carman

Lichen Sclerosus, Autoimmunity and Fertility – a Medical and Psychological Connection

Lichen sclerosus is a genital condition characterised by patchy white skin which is thinner, drier and more painful than normal. Although it is relatively rare that practitioners will see this in clinic, it is important for us to be equipped to treat it, and to understand its far-ranging implications. Naava’s talk will cover how the condition is connected to infertility through its impact on the immune system and through the psychological impact on the well-being of women wishing to become pregnant. Naava will also discuss the impact of gut health on the ability to manage and/or eradicate the condition.
