Question: loss of sensation during intercourse


 gotmeg07 - Sun Apr 26, 2009 9:54 pm

Went from very sensitive, to almost being able to feel nothing. Can no longer reach orgasm given the same stimulation... Change occurred within a period of 2 weeks. Also notable: lump in right lymph node in pelvic area, cheesy discharge.

Possible diagnosis?

User avatar Hello,
A cheesy discharge could indicate an infection such as yeast overgrowth and should be treated. It's possible this is just a temporary condition, perhaps even with psychological basis rather than physical. Be sure to use a lubricant and arousal techniques. Also, for women, the relationship itself usually must be good in order for sex to be good, so examine those factors.

I would not panic yet, but give things time to worth themselves out.

Best wishes.
