I masturbate quite frequently and have been doing so for many years. I usually have a very good orgasm every time I masturbate, because my clitoris is so sensitive to touch. Yesterday I masturbated, (I have been masturbating more than usual lately, because my boyfriend and I just broke up and I am very depressed), and after that my clitoris and vaginal area went numb. I am very scared, please help! Will the numbness go away and will everything go back to normal? I tried to see if I could get an orgasm after the area got numb, and I couldn't! I already suffer from major depressive disorder and I think I will kill myself if I can never have another orgasm. I am about to have my period in a few days, does this affect anything? I am only 17 years old and a virgin! Please help !
Hi, I think everything will go back to normal. You have mentioned depressive disorder, I don´t know if you take any medication, if yes, then be careful about some antidepressants - most antidepressants (mainly SSRI category) have well-known negative side effects on sexual life - for example inability to orgasm (inorgasmia) or lack of sexual desire. So if you use any antidepressants and some sexual problems occur, it can be related to those side effects, in this case I would recommend to ask your doctor to prescribe you a different kind of antidepressants, e.g. Welbutrin does not have these side effects. I hope things will be ok soon. Good luck!
