About 2 years ago I decided to get my Vertical Clitoral Hood Piercing (VCH). It healed fine, had no problems with healing, and was very pleasurable. Until a couple of months ago have I noticed that I am having a hard time having an orgasm. My partner said that because of the piercing it's sometimes difficult to get to my clitoris for the stimulation. Even at that it is still difficult to achieve an orgasm. Would taking my VCH out help any or have I no hope anymore?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is possible that the nerves would have got damaged due to the piercing that could affect achieving clitoral orgasm. If the nerve damage has already occurred, getting the piercing removed will not get your sensations back. If the symptoms remain the same or persistent, you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance. Treatment measures as appropriate would be started to help you.
Take care.
