  • Why cant i see or Feel my clitoris anymore?

    Two weeks ago I woke up to a clitoris thay literally felt numb and it felt like it was gone. I touched the nub and there was no good sensation.

    The nub is small. When i touched the string above i could still Feel some good, but then my vagina stared burning and the string above the nub just shrunk and dissapeared! Like the internal part of the clitoris disappeared and shrunk also.

    I cant Feel the string/clitoral body i used to have above. It is so small and no stimulus. It just vanished.

    There is no good sensation there.

    Before i could easily see my clitoris and it was very sensitive. Now i cant see or Feel my clitoris anymore, even when i pull the clitoral hood back it is not there. It is just gone really.

    I have no sensation of pleasure down there. I have tried to locate the clitoris but cant. I also cant have orgasms anymore. Before i would have no problems at all.

    I also goy this sort of aching/burning feeling in my vagina and vulva when this first happened. It is not an STD or thrush. Have checked.

    Also have gotten zero libido since this happened and cant really get aroused at all.

    It bothers me since i am normally very sexually active.

    I am only 25 and dont know why it is happening. Anyway i can get my clitoris back?

    Is it a hormone problem?

  • Hi Sofa, what a weird thing to have happen! You mentioned this was two weeks ago - have you seen your healthcare provider since you started experiencing symptoms? It might be a hormonal thing or related to something entirely different like new soap or laundry detergent. I definitely think that a trip to the OBGYN will help soothe any racing thoughts you might have about this and can help clear up what could be causing it. In the meantime I'd recommend reducing stress, wearing clean underwear and maintaining hygiene (but no soap down there).

      Went to see an OBGYN, but she told me she Did not know much about this kind of thing, and new more about disease. She just Did an ultrasound, which was fine, and then nothing more.

      Have you ever heard of something similar? Do you know what it could be or who i could contact?

        Welcome to WH Interactive Forums. From what Zoë T. said above, this might be due to an allergic reaction or other sensitivity. Have you tried gong back to what you were using before as far as what you put on your body such as creams, sprays, soaps and shampoos? Along with laundry detergent also consider bleaches and fabric softeners. Why there? Because that area can be very sensitive. It may also be that your body was tolerating something from much longer ago and reached a point of intolerance. When my older brother started having allergy problems as a child, I believe that was at least part of what happened.

        • Hi Sofa,

          Honestly, going by what you describe (and keep in mind I am not a doctor) it SOUNDS a lot like clitoral atrophy.

          When you look at the area using a mirror, does it seem pale in color? (Like a decrease in blood flow? Or do you have a medical condition that relates to decreased blood flow/poor cardiovascular health?) Another cause of clitoral atrophy can be related to hormones although that's not usually until menopause; although hormonal fluctuations might occur at any time if there are medical reasons.

          "Disuse" of the area can possibly result in clitoral atrophy but at your age, and the fact that you mentioned normally being sexually active, I kinda doubt that would be a root cause.

          I'd recommend seeing another OBGYN or another sexual health specialist if your current doctor didn't have any helpful advice. A physical examination and possible hormone tests just to rule out a hormonal cause.

          I don't know how common clitoral atrophy actually is (if that IS what you're experiencing), although there are some research studies that have shown positive results in the treatment of clitoral atrophy using estrogen tablets and creams.

          But again, it depends on the cause, too.

          Regular clitoral stimulation (to improve and maintain clitoral blood flow) may help, and you might consider trying an "arousal gel" that enhances clitoral stimulation (and also increase blood flow as well). Similarly, anything else that increases blood flow (like exercise even) may help.

          But really, I would see another doctor for further examination just to find out if 1) this is what is happening and 2) find out what has caused this to happen.

          I'm really sorry you're experiencing this and I hope you're able to get some answers soon!
