Examination needed: You need to be examined by a GYN doctor to confirm what is the diagnosis. There could be many reasons why this area is painful i.e. infection, contact irritant, etc. Particularly herpetic lesions may present as a cut or blister and is very tender to touch.

Had an IUD put in tuesday my clitoris hurts and is really sensitive to the touch?

Trauma?: Do you recall feeling clitoral pain during the IUD insertion with you doctor? If yes, you may have had a rather uncommon experience with the procedure. If no and this developed somewhat after the insertion, I would not necessarily relate the clitoral pain to the IUD as the insertion procedure shouldn't even really go near the clitoris. Consider seeing the doc who did insert and have them examine it. ...Read more

My clitoris hurts what are some of the reason why my clitoris hurts? I just started using metro gel for my BV

Clitoral pain: Pain and discomfort in the vulva (vulvodynia) is a common cause of clitoris pain, as are skin irritations from rashes or household chemicals. Recurring infections or cancer may also cause clitoris pain. In other cases, clitoris pain may be related to a chronic underlying disease that affects other regions of the body. Other causes of clitoris pain include vaginal yeast infections and sexually transmitted diseases. ...Read more

My husband and I played around (a lot). Now my clitoris hurts really bad, and feels swollen, like a huge bump. Super painful. Is this normal? Did I break it?

Yes, no: Glad you're having a good time! Often times, for both men & women, our bits are extremely sensitive after sex, often painfully so such that we can't tolerate additional attention/contact/pressure. More specifically, I'm referring to male glans & female clitoris. So take a breather, snuggle & let time do its thing. If it's that uncomfortable, cold pack + OTC pain relief. If that's not enuf, see doc ...Read more

I had a uti. I took Azo I think it went away but now my bladder gets fuller faster. Also my clitoris hurts during intercourse are they connected?

I had a uti. I took Azo I think it went away but now my bladder gets fuller faster. Also my clitoris hurts during intercourse are they connected?

Doubtful: Azo is a good over the counter bladder numbing medication, but it is not an antibiotic and will not effectively treat a true uti. You may want to get an official urinary analysis to confirm it has resolved. Pain in the clitoris is likely unrelated but the first place to start would be a pelvic exam by your doctor. ...Read more

Evaluation time: This could be as simple as an infection to something like vulvadynia. If you are able to reach orgasm thru clitoral stimulation (oral sex, vibrator, masturbation) the issue is likely not enough clitoral stimulation. Its time to see a gyn provider. ...Read more

Clitoris pain and bleeding after peeing, what is wrong?

My take is. ..: What described indicates something occurring recently. If new and fresh to you, seek a direct face-to-face evaluation & counseling for better, more effective, pertinent care. Of course, always bring the info on the onset, degree, duration, evolution, & progress of symptoms and their potentially related discomforts over time to Doc for analysis + exam + tests as needed so to deduce Dx for Rx timely ...Read more

Got vulvodynia for 6 weeks after pap smear. Don't know how it's triggered. Vulva & clitoris pain even without touch. Any cure?

Topical steroids: If there is no infection, you may have an acute reaction to the gel or some component from the pap exam. It is very unusual. If there is no infection, sometimes steroids are used to calm an inflammatory process

Underneath the hood of my clitoris, above the vaginal opening it feels itchy and irratating like mad. It also hurts when I wipe after urinating. Help!

Bladder infection?: You may have a bladder infection extending down the tube to the outer world, called the urethra -- it is located just where you describe. Sometimes such discomfort is from sex. I recommend you get checked for a bladder infection or STD, and if negative, consider abstaining from sex for a few days, and soak in a hot bath tub. Good luck! ...Read more

Near my clitoris is a vain that gets very large every time I get aroused it hurts & causes me to remain uncomfortable for quite sometime after?

Vascular engorgement: Vascular engorgement is part of the normal sexual arousal. If you have a varicose vein in the area from weight lifting, pregnancy, or such, it too will become engorged and may take longer to return to normal after the sexual excitement ends. If this is a problem, a vein specialist who works on varicose veins could be of help. ...Read more

Not sure of question: Not sure of exact question. The clitoris contains erectile tissue just like the male penis, therefore it can change in size. It also contains very sensitive nerve endings making it more sensitive to irritation or injury. If the irritation continues I would have it looked at by a doctor/ ob/gyn ...Read more

What does it mean if your clitoris throbs and hurts at the same time?

Variable: Many women have described a persistent throbbing and painful sensation that is bothersome and is unrelated to sexual excitement. This vulvodynia or clitorodynia is complex but manageable depending on its cause and its severity. I start with topical lidocaine, topical estrogen, nortriptyline, icing, among other things. Talk to a doctor to rule out common causes of pain in the area like infection. ...Read more

My clitoris is swollen on one side, and hurts when touched or rubbed against my underwear. No other symptoms.

Clitoral pain: The clitoris is one of the most sensitive female sexual organs because of its location, innervation and blood flow. Pain in this area is a major sign that "something is wrong." If there has been no sexual encounters (solo or mutual) then there may be an injury or infection to this area that needs an evaluation by a GYN MD at your earliest convenience. ...Read more
