Angua, thank you. Having this word alone was amazingly helpful, and got me in the right direction of getting good information. I'd been told by a previous GP that basically if I wasn't interested in hormonal treatments, there was no point in giving me a referral, but reading up now I at least know there is more that can be done, and without hormones. Some of it is basically the same thing my dentist does!
Admittedly I'm still too anxious to sort out an appointment, but I've now got the right information, and that will
definitely make a big difference. Thanks so much.

Non-hormonal. There are a lot of genetic things in my family that make me a bit wary about even localised hormonal things. I should read up again and check the risks.

Kind'a dumb ones but...Still..
Feel free to ask! For the most part it doesn't affect my life, so I'm quite lucky.
