Lost sensation in clitoris

Has this happened to anyone?

If I think about things that usually get me going,I don't feel the usual twitch I used to. I don't know if this explains it well enough but that feeling if I try to imagine an orgasmic experience... I'd usually sort of feel the sensation down there but now, nothing.
It doesn't respond to my partners touch like it used to either sad
And when I do orgasm, it just isn't as intense.

Rather embarrassing, but I'm actually very upset about it. I've never been the easiest to reach orgasm but this is much worse. I can't think what I've done/not done/changed to make it happen.
No hormonal changes (not pregnant not menopausal etc)
No medication...

sad

Is there anything I can do? I've been trying to fantasise to see if it comes back. But perhaps that may even make it worse?

I have read that vibrators sometimes contribute to a loss of sensation, or make it harder to reach orgasm without the electric buzz... might that be a factor?

Possibly sad but all of a sudden when I've been using them for years? It was very sudden too.

If that's the case also, may I be able to fix myself by abstaining for a long time?

I don't know.
Because it was very sudden, there might be a medical explanation? Perhaps your GP, or a referral to a specialist?

I really don't want to sit and tell my GP about this grin but I will if I have to-I just wonder if It's fixable. I daren't google!

Might want to research into vitamin B12 and deficiency, which affects nerve endings. Supplements readily available.

(I had to have a course of injections for severe deficiency - and was a bit taken aback by the response). A friend buys B12 just for this effect.

Also, and this might sound strange, but Dr Louse Newson, specialist in menopause and HRT, is doing an online trial at the moment called Asparagus Awakening - basically try eating asparagus each day (I cook a few days worth and eat a few pieces from the fridge each day)....Early days, but I really think there is something in it.

Thank you,I will most definitely look into that. I used to take B12 supplements and stopped as a dr told me I didn't need them. Definitely going to start them again! Are injections better?

Nc fail nevermind smile

@SynchroSwimmer just added B12 to my Amazon basket ..as having the same trouble so thanks for the tip

The injections were given just for a severe clinical deficiency - alas.
It would be useful if it were possible to have them intermittently....😊

Abstaining may help - to give your body chance to reset. Or try edging... this teasing on the edge for a while may wake you up again?

You know you can buy and self administer B12 injections? I'm not advocating it and obviously seek advice from your doctor about health issues etc but it is possible.

Thansk drCoconut (as you're a dr I trust you) wink-I was looking and apparently you can order them from a few places!

Tiger it seems sensible. I am not doing anything to myself for a while now. Vibe's back in its box!I am in a quite LDR so It's one of those...

I am scared I'll never be able to be pleasured again!

OP, l am not a medic, but l am a clitoris owner, so a few thoughts.

For starters, l’m sorry to hear this. Regardless of what else (or who else) is going on in my life, I’ve been using vibies more or less daily since my mid teens, l’m early 40s now and they have not caused any decrease in sensitivity, far from it, so l think you can discount that. There could be a lack of, or even over sensitivity immediately afterwards, but we are talking hours there rather than days or more.

You don’t say how old you are, but some menopausal symptoms and hormonal changes can kick in at any age. Other non physical outside factors can play a role too.

Rather than abstain, l would suggest lots more “me time”, where you search for the hidden key. In addition, maybe engage in some oral only sessions with your partner where pure focus is on the clitty.

You’ll get there!

Thank you so much
I'm thinking it could be psychological because my thinking about things that would usually cause a sensation doesn't anymore.
However my partners touches (to other parts of my body) do still get me turned on
I'm 39.
I'm worried it'll never come back but I've confided in a few close friends and asked on here obviously and people seem to think it will.
Not used my vibe since I noticed-darent!
