The most sensitive part of your body is probably going to be your clit. Although nature created this body part to provide us increased sexual pleasure, sometimes the clit can start to hurt! If you’ve ever felt confused by these experiences, you are not alone. Read on to learn the most common reasons why your clit may be hurting!

My clit hurts

You can enjoy your day, finish your errands when suddenly you become aware of intense pain in your lady region. You feel pain and confusion without any warning. Is it my period? Why is this happening?

All women are susceptible to bouts of clit pain. It is unjust, we know! Unfortunately, it is a natural risk of having sensitive areas located on the outside of your body. Luckily you can apply solutions that will decrease how much pain you experience.

Take time to assess what possible culprits could be affecting you, and then implement the corrective changes. Soon, you will be back on your way, with no trace of pain in your mind.

Where exactly is my clit

Hopefully, you know the general area where your clit is located. If not, you should spend some time examining your body. If you have a partner, show them exactly where your clit is. Know the exact location of this pleasure spot (approximately two inches above your vagina) to unlock greater levels of sexual pleasure.

The exposed part of your clit is very sensitive. This part is called the glans clitoris, and it contains hundreds of nerves. The abundance of nerves are easily excitable and can be easily stimulated by friction and touch. Most of your clit is actually inside your body. Few people are aware the inner portion of your clit wraps fully around your vagina.

Some women have larger exposed clits than others. If your glans clitoris (the head of the clitoris) is more exposed, you can visibly see a larger clit above the vagina. Unlike your vagina, your clitoris will never create its wetness. A lack of wetness can be uncomfortable. Use lube when you sexually explore your body. It will decrease any friction and unwanted rubbing in this delicate area.

Why does my clit hurt?

Chronic clit pain is also called clitorodynia. It is a type of pain that is present for prolonged periods. Individuals suffering from clitorodynia may have larger glans clitoris, which means more of their clit is constantly exposed. This large sensitive area is susceptible to over-stimulation and can feel painful.

What happened to your vagina in the last twenty-four hours? Any type of rough touching or rough sex can cause soreness the next day. Even solo intimate sessions can cause physical trauma to your vagina and clit if you are overly excited.

Pain, combined with itching, swelling and unusual odours can be an indication of an infection. These symptoms may appear due to several reasons: undiagnosed diabetes, sexual trauma, a sexually transmitted disease, bacterial vaginosis. If you experience any of these symptoms as well as clit pain, follow up with your health care provider for a thorough examination.

Sensitivity In My Clitoris

A sensitive clit is not the same as clitorodynia or chronic clit pain. It simply means that your clit is very sensitive, regardless of how large it is. A sensitive clit can help a woman reach orgasm faster, but too much of a good thing is not as much fun.

Try to wear loose-fitting clothes to reduce the amount of friction and clit-stimulation. Changing clothes is an easy adjustment to make that is non-invasive and should offer immediate relief. Pick soft fabrics like cotton that also allows for adequate airflow.

In the event your clit pain is acute, or suddenly coming on out of nowhere, consider how you spent your previous twenty-four hours. Did you engage in any rough sex? Did you physically walk into a corner or any other type of object? Physical trauma can increase the sensitivity of the clit, even a few days after the event.

Possible Clitoris Infection?

It is unlikely that your clitoris will ever suffer from an infection. But, it can tell you when something is wrong in your lady region. Your clitoris is extremely sensitive, so if it is causing you pain or irritation, it is trying to tell you that something is off! Do not take these symptoms lightly: seek medical guidance as soon as possible.

Your clit can also feel pain when other parts of your vagina feel painful too. Women experience pain in their vulva, and no explanation has been offered for this. Having your period will also heighten the sensitivity of your vagina and nearby body parts. Consider examining your menstrual cycle to assess if there is any link between your menstruation and any clit pain.

In Summary

The clit is a sensitive part of the body. It is designed to provide you with elevated pleasurable moments, but sometimes it can hurt. Get familiar with your anatomy, and assess why your clit may be in pain. Use lube to make your exploration smooth and pain-free.

If you love rough sex but suffer the next day, consider focusing your rough play on different parts of the body. Experiment with feet, back, or anywhere else that makes you excited. Your clit is sensitive, and too much of a good thing can quickly spoil the moment!

Physical explanations include too much friction in a sensitive area and rough contact such as rough sex. Your clit may be slightly larger than average, and you will always be more sensitive in this area. Wear loose clothes as a preventative measure to pain.

Any type of itching, unusual odours, and painful swelling combined with clit pain may be an indication of something more sinister. Common culprits include bacterial vaginosis, infections, and sexually transmitted diseases. If you experience any of these symptoms, follow up with your health care provider for proper treatment.
