This may sound bizarre but about 2 years ago I had a sore clitoris. After a couple of days of tenderness I decided to examine myself and discovered to my horror that my clitoris had gone..! All that was left was a raw patch of skin, which felt rather sore. After some time it eventually healed over. Since this time there is only a slight sensitivity in the area and whereas I used to be able to masturbate successfully I now find it takes me much much longer.
I have been too embarassed to see my doctor about this and have avoided intimate relationships. I have only told a few close family members who all seem to think it is impossible that my clitoris can have disappeared without any reason. Has anyone heard of anything like this and if so is there anything I can do about it.?
Thanks for reading this.:confused:

  • When you had the raw skin over the clitoris, the "hood" may have stuck to your clitoris, sovthat you can't see it. Can you feel it, if you stimulate the hood area, is there some swelling up of the tissue? I have seen this once in practice (was an ER Doc) after vigorous oral stimulation.There are conditions where the clitoral area becomes raw; called "aphthous ulcer," not related to infection but related to auto immune disease. Also come infections can cause this but usually it is painful, so you would know.If you have had an aphthous ulcer of the clitoris, with the hood then adhering to the ulcerated area, this will likely appear again. The colution is daily hygeine, pulling on the clitoral area from the inner portion, and traction against it by pressing on the hood. Gently. If the clitoral area becomes raw again, this procedure will cause it to be released from the hood. Then, put an ointment such as A & D, or neosporin, on the clitoris until it is healed.I hope this heps you; of course, there may be a diferent problem. But you should be able to discuss this with a female physician, hopefully. Please let me know if this helps. Marionstar

  • Hi, Yes, absolutely the same thing (sore vaginal area) happened to me when I was 39. I suspected, that the soreness caused the clitoris to vanish. I'm now 54 and have never recovered. Vaginal problems are documented in fibromyalgia.I absolutely want to tell you something. This area Was Numb for awhile and any stimulation was not comfortable at all. Fibromyalgia has this symptom. Absolutely, taking Guaifenesin helped me. Dr. St. Amand (the guaifenesin protocol -) is thought to pull Phosphates out of the body. That is the theory of fibromyalgia symptoms. And the numbness went absolutely away and I take guaifenesin. So, that symptom of numbess went away. I will try the (ER's) advice given, but, wonder if it will work at this point in my life. I developed hypothyroidism at this time, I am certain. Later diagnosed.I may have fibromyalgia as well. These two diseases absolutely occur together in Dr. St. Amand's opinion (fibromyalgia.) It is a shame that this symptom has happened to us. I went in for a ob/gyn checkup and asked the doctor, who was absolutely horrified that I'd asked a question, if my vaginal area looked normal.
