Am I a candidate for the MonaLisa laser treatment? Is it safe?

Candidate for the Mona Lisa Laser
Most women are excellent candidates for the Mona Lisa laser, if they have atrophy or symptoms that would be alleviated by this treatment. Your physician would be the best judge of when to have it done, as it is important to avoid doing the treatment during an active herpes outbreak. HPV history, with normal PAP smears is not a reason not to pursue this treatment.
A proper exam and evaluation of symptoms always need!
Is the MonaLisa Touch vaginal laser safe if you have a history of herpes
Yes. If you have frequent herpes outbreaks I would recommend using your preventative antiviral around the time of your laser treatments, but if you haven't had an ourbreak in 30 years you don't need to do anything special.

Safe for MonaLisa Touch HPV/Herpes
Yes! You can definitely have it done, PROVIDED that you do not have an active herpes outbreak at the time of the treatment (which you haven't had in 30 years). HPV is not a problem either, unless there are genital warts associated with it, which you are not reporting. So you should be able to have the laser treatment and do great. Your doctor will examine you and see if you are a candidate based on the thinning and drying of the walls.
I hope that helps.

Is MonaLisa a safe option?
If you haven't been sexually active for over 5 years...what are you hoping to get out of these treatments? Are you not sexually active because of painful sex related to postmenopausal atrophic changes? I recommend you see your gynecologist for an evaluation and treatment options for your issues.
Best of luck,

Mona Lisa Therapy Safety with HPV or Herpes
Mona Lisa Touch Candidate
Typically HPV is detected on pap screenings or colposcopy evaluation. The recommended close follow up and treatments for HPV usually are minor though necessary for your overall health.
Nonetheless, having a history of herpes and HPV are not contraindications for the MonaLisa Touch treatment. Taking suppressive anti-viral medication prior a session may be recommended by your gynecologist. And know the design of the treatment probe actually shields the cervix from treatment.
I'm sure a thorough history and physical by your MonaLisa Touch provider will determine the best and approprtreatment for your vaginal atrophy.
