  • My husband asked the usual "and how was your day" question and somehow the only thing that immediately came to mind was "can you google vibrating vagina?".

    This just started happening to me today, and it was very obvious when I noticed it. I was driving to lunch with my two coworkers when all of a sudden I felt a very faint vibrating feeling. I thought somehow my cell phone had fallen on my seat under my heavy winter coat and it was ringing. It took me a second to figure out that it wasn't my phone, so then I just sat in silent confusion.

    Anyway I guess I would either describe it as a very faint vibration or as someone else had described it, like a purring cat (which I realize is both funny and weird to describe it like that). The feeling itself is just that though, it's weird. It's not painful or arousing, just weird.

    A couple things about myself -
    I just started Nuvaring two weeks ago and have had my period continuously since I started, although much lighter than usual. I have only ever used birth control for a total of about 30 days, more than 5 years ago and I'm in my upper 20's.
    I loyally use Tampax tampons, Stayfree pads and Carefree panty liners, depending on need.
    I haven't had any noticeable weight loss or gain in the last 5 years and I wouldn't necessarily consider myself overweight, but I could stand to lose 10lbs.. :-)
    I don't keep my phone in my pocket or anywhere near my body - It's usually in my purse or on my desk.
    I've been to airports/on planes a few times in the past month.. in case theres any connection there.
    Diet has been fairly consistent, although I wouldn't consider it "healthy" by any means. Nothing out of the ordinary though, other than the fact that I had a pomegranate last night for the first time in a year.
    My stress level is not out of the ordinary, and I'm not a high stress person.

    All in all, the only real noticeable change in my life is the birth control. Given the number of people that experienced this, I'm not overly concerned yet. Maybe my body is just adjusting to the presence of the ring/hormones in my body. We'll see though, hopefully it doesn't get worse!

    • I'm 18 years old and I'm having this same problem. I was just on my period and got off last night. I was having trouble sleeping last night cause I kept feeling this buzzing/vibration in or on my vagina. It doesn't hurt but it doesn't feel good either. Most of the time is in a pattern but sometimes it's not. It also seems like when it happens I feel like a little pressure or pull on my vagina. Its kind of freaking me out. Has anyone found anything out?

        I have had this too, probably about half a dozen times all up. I get it at the very top of my leg on the front, where your leg meets your hip. My first thought is 'oh I have a message' but then realize my phone is not in my front pocket OR I don't have a pocket! lol. It only last seconds. It is indeed weird. I presumed it was similar to a twitch in your eye, but a 'vibrating' of nerves in my leg/hip..

        • I have this going on now. It's been a week. I had this a few years ago and was sure it was caused by heavy lifting. Actually pulling a wheelbarrow of wood with a flat tire.
          This time I went to a really hardcore weightlifting class and not that fit.

          Curious to know if anyone else thinks there is a link ?

          last time sitting on a yoga ball seemed to make it go away. I dont have one this time.

          It's the oddest feeling. When I wake up in the night I sometimes think I am doing a wee. I never am but I have to check !!!

          Hoping it goes away soon. It's so distracting and not in a good way

          • Thank the gods for this website. Seriously thought I was going nuts, or that some insect had crawled its way into my... and was buzzing, trying to get out. Actually stripped down, showered, inspected, found nothing. Anyhow, this just happened to me couple hours ago, and the 1st time ever experiencing.

            -no uid, birth control, any abnormalities or surgeries in that region
            -started while sitting on bed, hunched over typing in laptop
            -under a HUGE amount of stress, homeless shelter, violence, abuse, poverty, etc

            -recently, been spending a lot of time, in bed, laptop in front of me (only safe space where I'm left alone)
            location seems to be in right labia, closer to pubic mons than perineum
            -haven't been able to localize it any further
            -happens while sitting, standing, walking, bending over, stretching
            -timed it, general pattern seems to be every 4-11 seconds
            -pushing legs together, so crotch is kinda squished... buzzing starts right away
            -haven't found a position that makes it go away
            -cellphone nowhere near when it happens
            -haven't been able to... use vibrator for months, so i know it's not that

            Given been dealing with twitches, muscle jerks & spams, etc for decades, got kinda used to it. if i focus on it, can get freaked out. but... cbt/dbt, meditation helps. Let it recede into background.

            No idea how long this will last. Hopefully my coping skills continue to hold. I seriously need to get stoned now.

            • If cell phones are still going off inside and you haven't developed a neurological condition, you might consider that it's actually turbulent blood flow or even mild vasospasm. I get the same thing in my pelvis, but I don't have any female organs only a vascular stent that creates that same sensation. I also had it in my forearm after they avulsed my radial artery during a heart cath. After vascular injuries the clotting creates turbulence that same vibration. Can't prove why this would also happen in my vagina, except that I also have grade 2 organ prolapse due to EDS that I believe also causes transient vascular entrapment that leads to pelvic congestion. Unless your spasms feel more like small orgasms (muscular) or are accompanied by numbness and pain (neuro) and not simply like an annoying cell phone vibrating (stop calling already!), you might want to consider a vascular cause that may or may not be benign. The rest of this article is basically bull**** doctors like to blame everything on when they really don't know. Where are the peer reviewed study citations? Oh, that's right. There aren't any because women's issues are not really studied. Just a bunch of "try this to see if it helps" and anecdotal "evidence". Think about it. Over half the stuff they said would bring this on yourself (love how that also works) actually affects blood flow. Just sayin'.
