I understand that you never had consummated. Now that your clitoris is hurting.

Do you seem to look for a surgery to get rid of this clitoris because it hurts? There seems no reasonable explanation why clitoris should be removed when it just needs a simple pain killer to stop hurting.

I suggest you to take ADVIL/MOTRIN which can give relief.

Let me know if I had understood the query well. If not please explain in detail about your query.

Thank you.

I just want to know if there is a surgery to restore sensation to a clit that hurts to b touched .it has veer this way since I was 17. As a result I've never had an orgasm before or experienced pleasure before fr. Any kind of sex.

Before you think of reconstruction of clitoris you need some therapist from the local counselor. Most of the times biofeedback kind of therapies will restore the pleasures and orgasm. Try this out before a costly and invasive surgery. The percentage of restoration with surgery is not 100% and not guaranteed.

Thank you.

The sexual pleasure were found in the brain and not entirely from the physical parts like clitoris and G spot. These are just structures with high nerve endings. Suppose you do not have these nerve endings at these structures, the structures adjoining them will have next higher number and stimulate and reach the brain causing pleasure. If you had tried oral sex or masturbation these nerve endings will be stimulated. I think you problem is not anatomical it is that you had not experienced any for many years and the pathways are shut, the pleasure centres are deactivated. I am definite that you can solve the problem speaking to a sex therapist. They can find a possible answers. You should head towards them.

You are giving details of a lifelong anorgasmic disorder. It needs thorough evaluation by Psychiatrist and Psychotherapist. You need to get few investigations done including that of thyroid, oestrogen, progesterone, prolactin etc. Your end to end history is important to understand the nature of anorgasmia. Patients with lifelong and generalized types of female orgasmic disorder appear to have a good prognosis with treatment but an uncertain prognosis without treatment. It is late but better than never. I still see a scope of improvement with Cognitive Behavioural therapy and if required some drugs from the Psychiatrist.

I know I cannot help you find solution but give right direction to solve the problem.

If you have further queries please let me know.

How could this have anything to do with having to see a psychiatrist. I have never experienced feeling of sexual pleasure before. I had my thyroid and all my hormone levels checjpked and I was told that they r within the normal range. When I have inserted the finger there is no feeling of pleasure experienced. It is like I am numb inside. So there is no reason for masturbation. Please read all the other ques. I had for you again,to understand my problem more thoroughly. I have never ever experienced any kind of pleasure fr. Oral sex being done to me. There is no feeling or feelings of pleasure or arousal fr. Th clit area. The clit hurts fr. The slightest touch any way. Can I b fixed. I'm 42 or will I always b like this. I've discovered this to a psychiatrist and mentioned this to a psychiatrist and he never offered me any advice,said it was common with his paltients on psychiatric drugs, I've taken since age 17. Loss my virginity at 17.have never experienced sexual pleasure before, have you ever heard of my situation before or am a rare case.

Good that you revealed better things than you did to me earlier. Of course I read through the details earlier with diligence and I wrote you mindfully.

If you had already met a Psychiatrist then were you directly for CBT with a Psychotherapist? If longer medication use had caused this problem then it is purely secondary. If any treatment option is left you should have CBT left. I do not believe surgery is gonna do any good. I took a curbside consult from a plastic surgeon about your case and his opinion did not vary. Suppose if you speak to one directly you can to a plastic surgeon on this forum?

Honestly I have not heard such history earlier from my patients.

All the best.

CBT is cognitive behavioral therapy done a psychotherapist. This is not mental issue. Please do not get me wrong. This is a problem where you unable to perceive the pleasure. The sense of smell would not work or fail to recognize the object of smell if you do not smell an object for long time. You are unable to perceive the senses and pleasure.

Yes in fact mentioned it to plastic surgeon. But you did not reveal that you were injured at age 17. This is a new history given to me. You are partly disclosing the information. You must believe me and reveal everything that had happened. At the start of the conversation I mentioned about the nerve endings but you ruled me out.

Since there is a history of major injury now I suggest you to ask plastic surgeon here. They take a different approach. The following link can help you.

Let me know his opinion too.
