Insensitive clitoris....why and is there any way to fix that?

Stimulation: Stress, worry, anxiety, hormonal fluctuations, can cause this.
Try very prolonged, slow, foreplay using a water soluble lubricant- a good sign of clitoral stimulation would be abundant vaginal mucous and secretions. If no reponse I would suggest a GYN exam-you must take your time start slowly (5-10 minutes) and extend foreplay to 20+ minutes. ...Read more

I am 60 yrs old, I have a terrible itch on my clitoris. What can I do to stop the itch? Thank you

Clitoral itch: The most common causes for a clitoral itch in a 60 year old woman are: atrophic changes from low estrogen in menopause, a skin condition called lichen sclerosis or a yeast infection. You can try using an over the counter steroid cream such as hydrocortisone. If that helps, it's probably lichen sclerosis. But the only way to get a diagnosis is to be examined by a gynecologist. So schedule a visit. ...Read more
