Vibrator Hurts

By winter on Nov 18, 2010 at 12:23 PM

Hi. I've been using a vibrator to help me orgasm. For the past few months, using it actually hurts. I'm even experiencing discomfort to the touch and I'm not able to orgasm. Is it possible that I damaged my nerve endings?

You should likely stop using this vibrator if it is causing you pain. Perhaps it is too strong for you now? Try using a lighter vibration. Are you experiencing discomfort to the touch with your fingers as well? If so, I would suggest going to the gynecologist to get cleared physiologically. As far as I know, it is difficult to damage nerve endings using a vibrator...so there might be something else going on. Take a break from the vibrators and try using your fingers for a while to see if the pain subsides.

There are a few reasons why you could be experiencing pain. If you are using strong vibration the same way, day after day, in the same spot, and with pressure, you could cause some inflammation of the nerve endings. Very intense vibration in the same spot for more than a few minutes continuously can do this. If that is the case, some rest to the area will definitely help. It may take weeks for the inflammation to subside if you have that much pain. If you have any doubts, you should see your Gyn.
