Vaginal stimulation or masturbation is without a doubt pleasuresome. Also, it might help in improving sexual response. But sadly, it has a flip side to it too. 

If you understand the anatomy of your vulva then you must know that clit is one of the most sensitive erogenous points. It feels like a tiny button which is located right above your urinary opening. The function of this organ is to give sexual pleasure.

According to experts, stimulating it can help you in arousal and in achieving orgasm. But ladies before you go any further we have a head-up for you. The news is that clit is very sensitive and being aggressive and stimulating it way too often can actually have some major repercussions.

Here are the five issues you might deal with, if you overstimulate your clit: 
1. Vaginal infections

According to Dr Gandhali Deorukhkar Pillai, a consultant with the obstetrics and gynaecology department at Wockhardt Hospital, Mumbai, too much clit stimulation, especially via external devices like a vibrator can lead to bruising and cuts. Due to bruising, swelling can also happen in that area.

Cuts can give a free pass to bacteria and fungus to penetrate within the organ, and lead to severe infections.

2. Urinary tract infections

Touching the clit with a dirty hand or vibrator can also affect the urinary tract. That’s because the clit is very close to the urinary opening, and therefore there are high chances that the bacteria can spread around the area and can also lead to UTI.

“A burning sensation while peeing is witnessed in such cases,” she says.

3. Vaginal dryness is another possibility

According to Dr Pillai, when you rub your clit way too much, the sweat glands in the area lead to secretion. Excessive rubbing every now and then clogs the pores in that region, making it dry. It can also lead to inflammation in that region.

4. Sexual dysfunction

“It’s like if you over exert an organ, then its response will keep dipping. It’s the same with the clit area. The clit area is full of nerve endings, and that’s the reason why it is so sensitive. Irritating those nerves time and again will hamper its working, and after sometime one may also experience loss in their libido,” she explains.

5. Painful intercourse

You might end up with abrasions, if you stimulate the clit area way too much. This condition is also known as dyspareunia. In dyspareunia, the pain in your genitals can be intense and can happen before, during, and even after intercourse.

So ladies, have some fun but do not overstimulate your clit!
