  • clitoris dead after accidental trauma

    hi, this is my first post. i was just looking for a place to talk about this. about 4 months ago, i was climbing over a metal fence but i accidentally lost my grip while i was at the top and the way i landed on it about all of the impact was centered right on my clit. (yes it HURT)

    after the pain went away i noticed there wasn't any sensation in it, but i figured i just needed to give it a bit of time to heal and return to her old self. well, the sensation never started coming back to i went in to have it looked at. the doctors told me that the impact has caused irreversible physical nerve damage around the base of it. (the last thing i wanted to hear)

    so now here i am still with complete numbness, and i don't know what to do! there's not even a hint of sensation in it anymore. even if i give it a hard pinch i feel zero pain. (pinching it in a way that would definitely hurt normally for sure) it literally just feels like i have no clitoris.

    this is really distressing because before i would get myself to have 2 to 4 very strong orgasms daily, so this loss is very difficult for me to deal with. suddenly i'm never able to ever have one again? i don't know what to do.

    has anybody else ever been in this kind of situation before?

  • Jess, that's sad I am sorry.

    Well, I never believe in giving up, what actual tests did this Doctor do, or was that purely his/her diagnosis?

    I would read everything there is to read up on this and I would get a second opinion.

    Failing this, you know there is always light at the end of tunnel, you can master and learn how to have G-Spot orgasms by yourself they are very intense as well...

    I hope you search and find answers.

    • Wow! That must be really difficult. Do you really know how extensive this damage is? The nerves of the clit do extend beyond, perhaps you can experiment and find out if there is anything there? See if you can find a Tantrix in your area, she may be able to help you with this. Also it is possible to train any part of the body to experience arousal to orgasm. This will take some research and training. There are women who orgasm without being touched or from nipple or other stimulation. If they can learn it, you can, especially if you have been orgasmic previously.

      There are therapists who work with women who have been circumcised to help them learn to experience arousal and in some cases orgasm, I'm sure you can find some avenues for help if you look. Good luck with this. I can't imagine how difficult and frustrating it must be.

      • If you go to borders online you can search for tantra books....buy one!!!!! Also look up wheatgrasss I have told this board time and time again to look to wheatgrass. I use a brand made by Evergreen it is frozen. My daughter had a kidney problem at birth and it rebuilt it.....5 docs told me she had to have an operation! Doctors can be wrong....get a second opin!

        • If the nerves are indeed severely damaged there will be no fixing it. Physically there will be no chance of a neural reconnection. Tantra is a possible option, but only if you believe in the material. If you do not then the only thing left, physically, is Gspot.
          There are those who believe that dictionaries should not merely reflect the times but also protect English from the mindless assaults of the trendy.

          • Jess...

            As this is a potential life long situation, a second opinion is an absolute necessity, even a third would be more realistic. However, don't settle for an opinion of the average professional. Instead, seek a doctor already having a reputation of successful nerve restoration and re-vitalization. Historically so, the central nerve stream cords can be re-united and, if this can apply to a clitoris, then some of your sensations can be restored as well...

            Meanwhile, as already mentioned...that little reserve package, your G-spot, can supplement but you may have to train your man for finding it...

            It's a sad loss for any girl and I so wish for your restoration success...

              he used a machine that gives really strong electrical stimulation since it's a lot more powerful than what a finger can provide, but i still got absolutely nothing. also physically examined it pretty closely.

              thanks to you all for the support. i'm not exactly optimistic about this though, because i know it's impossible to re-connect nerves to talk with the brain once severed. and yes, i've been trying g-spot stimulation (i do know where it is) but it's the same situation.. it's all connected to the same big bundle of nerves so nothing there either for me.

              really depressing situation.

                yeah, this is the truth i think unfortunately. i know the body as a remarkable ability to heal itself, so maybe over some years i'll at least get a little bit of sensation back who knows.

                • to those of you that suggested looking into tantra, thanks for the support. it doesn't really work for me like it does for others though. my guy and i experimented with it in the past. the only way i could ever orgasm was direct physical stimulation.

                  • Jess don't give up on things that might help you bypass this. It didn't "work" for you before but you have reason to revisit this and other possibilities. Did you and your bf try it on your own? You should locate some experienced Tantrix and see what they have to offer?

                    • I agree with WC. Don't give up! I know it's going to be difficult, but keep trying all the same. Try not to get too frustrated.

                      • 6/1/19 ... To Jess2112: Im an RN, BS, who happens to have a whole host of "uro-gyne" (pronounced "GUY-knee") diseases. Im so sorry for what has happened to you. I realize that your situation AND your post are now 10 yrs old. I do hope u have been able to receive COMPETENT treatment by now. If not, I hope what I post can help. I can only guess that you directly damaged your PUDENDAL NERVE. But I find it hard to believe that you actually damaged/severed/"killed" your ENTIRE Pudendal nerve just by slam-cramming the small, exposed external glans of your 4" clitoris. With that I ask, "Have you or a partner tried "stimulating the 2 "legs" of your clit?" Have you or a partner tried stimulating the 2 bulbs of your clit?" The clit encompasses a woman's entire crotch/"saddle" area & for most & ... out of habit, ignorance & laziness, is "largely responsible for pleasurable feelings during foreplay & sex," states on expert. Because the entire bifurcated clit is located just under the skin & very close to the surface, touching, stroking, massaging, etc, ANY part of the crotch where that 4" long organ lays should be extremely pleasurable. If you can STILL feel pleasure or at least SOMETHING in that area when it is touched ... there is hope. Have you seen a SPECIALIST, not just a generic OB-GYN? Have you been Rx'd VIAGRA? How about PELVIC FLOOR PT? Also .... are u now experiencing severe urethral pain, stinging, burning before, during & after you pee & overall unbearable urethral pain 24/7? If ALL of that area is dead/numb & u feel nothing or u now feel only excruciating pain ... then your Pudendal nerve maybe gone forever or permanently damaged. BUT! ..... I would refuse to accept this without getting ALL the appropriate high-tech tests/scans done & getting a MINIMUM of at least 3 different SPECIALISTS opinions!! In a woman there are 3, yes, 3 SEPARATE nerves that are responsible for orgasms: the Pudendal, Vagus & Hypogastric. The bifurcated, 4" long clitoris is primarily innervated by the Pudendal nerve & affects the ENTIRE EXTERNAL crotch region & somewhat beyond - the bladder, urethra, pelvic floor & the rectum. The internal G Spot or G ZONE (which is part of the clitoris) is also innervated by the Pudendal nerve. but [the G-spot and the clitoris] are interconnected and go to the pudendal nerveAs mentioned, the ENTIRE length of the clitoris, including it's bulbs (which encase the vagina), can be easily stimulated externally, either manually or orally. If that area "no longer works" or u just want to spice things up a bit .... there is a handy back up provided by both the VAGUS & HYPOGASTRIC NERVES. The cervix & the "A & P fornices", the areas directly below the cervix, are innervated by the BOTH these nerves. As a result, upon CORRECT stimulation, those orgasms are deeper, more intense & SYSTEMIC, or body-wide. If you've had ALL THE PROPER &
                        ??????THOROUGH TESTS DONE & see a neuro-uro-gynecologist, then it seems to me as if you've experienced to something similar a spinal cord injurty. So, your sexual focus needs to be primarily on the areas that are NOT innervated by the Pudendal nerve. You need to focus on those areas innervated by the Vagus & Hypogastric nerves, because they both bypass the spinal cord. Many women with spinal cord injuries have been told that they would never orgasm again. However, after re-education, they have actually enjoyed deeper orgasmic pleasure courtesy of the vagus nerve. Author & sexologist Beverly Whipple studied cervical/sub-cervical orgasms of women with spinal cord injuries & found that the same areas of the brain were activated in women both with & without SCI when stimulating the cervix or sub-cervix region (the A & P fornices) . ××× I highly recommend you contact EVERY WOMEN'S sexual dysfunction clinic in the US (Im NOT kidding) & find a specialist who is willing to work with you & give you back not just your "sex life," but also give you an AWESOME one! You may have to travel out of state ... but speaking from personal miserable experience - QoL (quality of life) is EVERYTHING. You need to see a neuro-uro-gyne, one board certified in NEUROLOGY! They do exist. The Mayo Clinic is excellent. So are Johns Hopkins, Stanford Med School, UCLA, ********Dr Jennifer Berman, Los Angeles, CA, ******** Scripps in San Diego, CA, St Joseph’s Hospital & Medical Center, Phoenix, AZ. There are MANY more listed on the net that deal SUCCESSFULLY with issues like yours.


                        It would be so great if you could give us all an update .... even if it is a negative, depressing one. 10 yrs have passed & we are FINALLY coming out of the Dark Ages of Women's/Gyn Care. There are more options out there for you now than you realize.
