Hypersensitive clitoris

Paul Community Member August 30, 2010
  • Hi I know that diagnosis cannot really be given or confirmed over the net, but I really at the end of my tether.

    I am British living  with my girlfriend in Hungary and she is experiencing  a very harrowing and strange problem which none of the doctors we have seen can help or identify the condition.

    My girlfriend is 33 years and we have a 2 and half year old son, and she has never had any serious illness before.

    Around 5 weeks ago she went to the gynecologist with a pain in the left side( around the ovary area) he prescribed some antibiotics and she felt fine. Around a week later she had the persistent feeling that she had to urinate but could not, we went to another Gynecologist and again were given a different course of antibiotics. After finishing the course she began to experience extreme hypersensitivity of her clitoris and it leads to continuous unwanted orgasms.

    I know this sound crazy but she is in real and constant discomfort, and she is really depressed, she can't even remove her panties normally as she will have another unwanted orgasm. She also experiences a burning sensation when she urinates.

    We have went other doctors and she had a 5 day stay in a local hospital but still no one can identify or treat the problem. She has had yeast infection tests, blood work, Antibiotics, countless other medications, ultrasound and even a brain CT and all results have came back clear.

    Doctors here are just shrugging their shoulders but not pointing us in the right direction to go, they are quite rude and very indifferent to our plight.

    This whole event is really hurting my family and really affecting my son because my girlfriend is really scared and can't operate or function normally.

    Can anyone recommend me who to talk to or has anyone heard of a similar problem before.

    I have read about Priapism but her clitoris shows no change and is not swollen or erect, and we mention this to doctors who dismissed it, so I think it can be ruled out but I am not a doctor, can anyone help?

    Hello

     

    I can only imagine how difficult this has been for you and your partner.  There was a news show about this medical issue and I wish I could locate it for you.  The show clearly showed how horrible this was to live with.

    Hello

     

    I can only imagine how difficult this has been for you and your partner.  There was a news show about this medical issue and I wish I could locate it for you.  The show clearly showed how horrible this was to live with.

     

    In researching this I found a forum on the Interstitial Cystitis Network where some of the women seem to have similar symptoms. 

     

    Here is another article about what they are calling Persistent Sexual Arousal Syndrome.  It seems there can be different causes.

     

    Here is a support group for Persistent Sexual Arousal Syndrome.

     

    I am so sorry that medical professionals are not taking this seriously. You have to keep searching for the right doctor to help.

     

    Let us know what happens.  Thank you for reaching out here.
