Q: I just noticed a small cut right above my clit. It is surprising how few people are actually familiar with the vulval anatomy, and who can successfully identify the different elements that compose it. I’ve tried everything to get rid of it. I’ve never seen a single bump or sore, but when I do have an O/B, it’s always a single cut like that is very small and usually goes away in a day or two. The one saving grace is that if it was a sore then I dont think there is any chance that it could be in such a sensitive area and not cause her any discomfort, as it is actually under her hood and touching her clitoris. The only time I did note any white discharge was Wednesday night. 4.

Persisting genital arousal syndrome–see recent citation: J Sex Med.

METHODS: Twenty-three women, fulfilling all five criteria of persistent genital arousal disorder were included into the study.

These answers do not constitute or initiate a patient/doctor relationship. The clitoral hood shields it from rubbing against clothes for example. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Sensitivity of RIPB, GTM test. I wish the internet sites and information were more clear about the possibility of such minor symptoms. Intolerance of tight clothes and underwear (allodynia or hyperpathia) was reported by 19 (83%) women. Since we’ve been together for 6 years and none of our previous partners have ever contacted us about herpes, we are crossing our fingers and toes that it is something else. Sitting aggravated ReGS in 20(87%) women.

In all women, MRI showed pelvic varices of different degree in the vagina (91%), labia minora and/or majora (35%), and uterus (30%). Finger touch investigation of the dorsal nerve of the clitoris (DNC) along the RIPB provoked ReGS in all women. Sensory testing showed unilateral and bilateral static mechanical Hyperesthesia on various trigger points in the dermatome of the pudendal nerve, particularly in the part innervated by DNC, including pelvic bone. In three women, sensory testing induced an uninhibited orgasm during physical examination. Ik hoor maandag de uitslag! Physical examination for static mechanical Hyperesthesia is a diagnostic test for ReGS and is recommended for all individuals with complaints of persistent restless genital arousal in absence of sexual desire.
