I have a huge problem that I have found no answers for nor have I found anything on the net regarding my problem. Basically I feel no pleasure during sex. It is completely numb and no matter what size a man is or how they use it I can feel nothing. Its been this way my whole life and nothing I have done has worked. Im beginning to think its broken! I can't believe it is nerve damage because I can feel everything else just nothing I want to feel. Does anyone else have this problem? Has anyone had this problem and found out what caused it? Anyone know how to fix it?

Hey Everyone,

I h and also numbness extending into right side of my bag and clit. After years of looking and also being lumped into the "vulvodynia" category i found that the numbness went away immediately witth antibiotic. It all stemmed from an infection that was taking up space within me and blocking god knows what. most of the feeling is back but i am still taking an antibiotics and going to acupuncture. Even after knowing that the symptoms went away with cipro, i had to try for about 4 more months till they believed me and found that it was an infection. there is no real definitive test for infections so people like us that have one they just treat symptoms. but antibiotics get to the root of cause. Please try this i hope it works for you!!

clitoral numbness
I feel like men have it made.there is all kinds of stuff for men to take to help them with their problems with sex,but their is not one for us.thats not fair.they should be working on a pill for us.if we go to our gyno and tell them our problem,they say well it's probably menapause or they just do not have an answer,but if a man goes to their doctor and tells them they have a problem.they give them a pill and most of the time it works for them.we are the ones that need help or our partners will not be getting anything from us if we do not enjoy it.so we will have to keep trying to get help from our gyno until something works.

numb
I would love to know the answer to this embarrassing and debilitating question. I have same problem. I dont know wht causes it and i dont know how to fix it, its very frustrating. At one point i thought, :"This must be normal, then" But i refuse to believe that it is. There must be something we can do. I dont enjoy sex at al. Apart from a 'full' feeling down there during sex, there's no sensation at al, friction-wise. WHY!? Can some one help us, please?!

well had done with full bladder, empty bladder, standing sitting etc etc etc!!!! but still nothing! almost like there is no arousal, the first 20 times i had sex i had all the feelings and could get aroused etc and had the full feeling etc, but now it is just like if you imagine, putting 3 fingers in a toilet roll (just an example) and going in and out, and thats what it is like! so hard to explain, just would love to enjoy and have FULL pleasures of sex..................

I have the same thing too!
i found that i have the same problem. Rubbing my clitoris is very sensitive. I feel more if he pushes, but i feel more pressure that him (p.s. he is not small). I looked it up and i found this can mean a couple of things:

The most common cause of vaginal numbness and tingling is thrush or yeast or fungal infection. Other causes are bacterial vaginosis, damage to pudendal nerve. Nerve damage, diabetes or peripheral nerve disease. I am going to talk to my gynecologist.

In the mean time i am thinking of trying ribbed condoms and see if it makes a difference. I know that if I am on all fours and stay up, like don't put your head on the bed, it helps increase sensation. I also use Crown Condom and that helps way more than the other condoms. Hope this helps.

The obvious is lubrication, dryness can dull things imho.

Have you tried putting a pillow under your bottom while having sex, for better penetration.

Vaginal Numbness
I have the same issue. My husband and I waited until we were married to have sex and on our wedding night and for the most part ever since for the past two years, I don't feel anything. In my past I never had this issue. He is not a small guy by any means. Occasionally (once every 6 months I guess)it's like my sex drive and sensations will come back for one time only. That's how I found out that it's not him, it's me. I find that I get angry during sex because I can't feel anything and the whole thing is awekward because I'm not into it. So here's what I've found out may be the issue for many of us.

1. Have you ever been on birth control?
2. Have you ever taken antibiotics?
3. Do you eat an american diet (which is laden with processed foods, hormones, refined sugars, and pesticides)?
4. Do you get reocurring yeast infections but over the counter and prescribed creams don't really make it go away.

If yes to any or all of these then you may be suffering from an extreme case of Candida Albican. Search the web for the candida diet. This bacteria is resilient and is affecting many women in this country without them even knowing it. My whole 20s I've had issues with yeast infections. Three months before getting married I got on birth control again and I think that was the straw that broke the camels back sex wise. So educate yourself ladies. I hope this post helps.

My partner also have this problem. She is not dry at all, but she doesn't feel aroused if i touch her down there nor on her nipple. And she's been like this all her life.

Could it be some hormonal or enzyme related issue?
