Causes

Clitoral pain is often caused by dermatological conditions, such as skin infections or disorders. It may also be a sign of a more serious, underlying condition that involves the entire body, such as diabetes. The most common causes of clitoral pain are:

  • Past surgery in the vulvar region
  • Injury from sexual abuse
  • Irritation to the nerves in the vulvar region
  • Rashes in the vulvar region
  • Recurring yeast infections
  • Recurrent sexually transmitted infections
  • Skin irritation from detergents, soap or feminine hygiene products

Preventions

Depending on the underlying cause of clitoral pain, this condition can lead to life-threatening complications if left untreated. If you’re experiencing pain in your clitoris, it’s important to see a pelvic pain specialist as soon as possible to develop a treatment plan and help you find relief.

If you’re experiencing any of the above symptoms, it may be time to see Dr. Sonia Bahlani.
