I'm a 19 year old female. Since I was sixteen, I've masturbated almost daily - idk why, but I'm compulsive about it. I mostly used an electric toothbrush, which I cleaned pretty well, and didn't have problems until recently. Over the last 2 months, I decided to masturbate only about once a week. But now, I'm having irritation and pain in and under my clitoris. I tried switching just to using my fingers, but that makes above my clitoris really sore. I'm terrified I have or am getting an infection - I used to use bacitracin all the time, but i knew i was overusing it so I've made myself stop. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do to prevent injury or infection, or whether I should see my gynecologist? I'm so embarrassed to explain this to her.

  • You may be too vigorous and are injuring your genitals. Sexual friction may also be causing this and you may want to use a lubricant. Or you may have introduced germs and have an infection. Stop masturbating for a week to let things heal first, very important. If you still have pain, I suggest you speak with your doctor.Always make sure that hands are freshly washed and the same for anything else that comes in contact with your genitals.

  • You could have caused some germs to enter; girl, you need to get a vibrator or ****o and make sure you wash them off after use. A toothbrush would be too harsh. You may have increased the bacteria and need an antibiotic; maybe you should have a doctor give you a check up and a pap just to check everything out. You don't need to tell her about the toothbrush. You may have just been too rough and need a break, too. Yes, use lubrication and a vibrator. You will even enjoy it more. And it's safe.
