clitoris problems : ( help!
ok, so i have kind of an embarassing concern, but i guess ill go ahead and say it. for the past few months every time i get close to my period my clitoris hurts. i know that its supposed to get more sensitive before periods, but it kinda freaks me out. like if i lean forward and my legs are spread apart it feels like its poking/stabbing me, and sometimes i get this shooting pain. it only lasts for a second or two but it scares me. once i get on my period it usually gets better, but it still feels really weird, and sometimes it still hurts. for a few days after my period it still feels unusually sensitive. its been a constant worry for a while and ive been wanting to ask someone, but i havent been able to. my dad says that its something that comes with my period and is nothing to worry about. i kinda get that feeling, but i guess i just want to know if its normal and if anyone else has had this problem before. i have an appointment with a gyn next month, but i want some answers before that if its possible.
btw, i am 15 and a virgin.
please respond!

i get that too sometimes during the week my period is suppose to come and when i have my period. my bf always says to me he hates period week because i dont want him touching down there because its rather sore that week. but the stabbing pain as u described, now that i dont get. if it concerns you u should see ur gyn just to make sure nothing is wrong like an infection or anything.

ok, thank you so much for responding, that makes me feel more assured. the pain is usually something i cause by my constant worrying and proding at the area, but sometimes it does happen on it's own. i would like to believe that it is just because the area is more sensitive to everything on/before period and it is just irritated, but... i still worry.
i should be going to the gyn next month like i said, but ive been trying to get an earlier appointment.
but i do have another question... my dad says that the clitoris may hurt because its dry or something...? like today it hurt when i walked around, but as soon as i got some moisture on it it pretty much stopped hurting. anyway, i was just wondering if anyone could shine some light on this for me...?

Before and during your period, you'll be extra dry, extra horny and extra sensitive. It's normal and common. It just *****.
