Question: clitoral pain, damaged nerves?


 barbarella - Tue Apr 17, 2007 7:16 am

Hi!

I'm a 25 year old female. No surgeries done, no medications, normally I'm healthy.

About a month ago I had some cystitis or so, and I had some episodes of strong urge to pee.

Then I tried not do let it out by making pressure on my vulvar zone with my hand from my pockets, and since then I notice that I have pain on my clitoris when pressured. The sensation feels as if I had a little thorn buried on my clitoris, more or less on the center, a little on the left.

I had many times cystitis before. Also candidiasis that caused me clitoral pain when touched ( in some way similar to this) that fixed itself, but now it's not improving, so I'm suspecting nerve's damage or so.

Could I have damaged my nerves just by the hand's pressure? Is it forever?


Thanks for your help, and forgive my bad english (is not my language).

User avatar If you are still having pain after a month it is probably time for you to talk to your doctor about this. It seems unlikely that permanent damage could have resulted from such a mild trauma but maybe something else is going on that a doctor can determine and help you with. Don't be afraid to talk with him or her about this important concern.
