My basic problem is that my clitoris is really, really sore. To the point that if I open the top folds of either labia I feel pain in the clitoris.
I masturbated this afternoon with my fingers, nothing I haven't done before. It felt really good and everything was fine then.
A couple hours later, I realized that it hurt there.
I've gotten this pain before, but it's been at least a year since I've had it and I wasn't as in tune with my body then- I didn't even identify the clitoris as the place where it hurt (and I wasn't masturbating at that time), and as really painful as it was I didn't think that much about it. I eventually came to the conclusion that it had something to do with a really tight pair of jeans that I wore.
But, honestly, I'm getting worried now because I've never really heard of this happening. Does anyone know if this is normal, or something to be worried about? Does anyone know what might be the cause of this? Any help, advice, or thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
And, in case it's at all relevant, I am not sexually active with anyone, nor am I on my period or close to being on my period.

Smegma causing serious pain is a pretty remote possibility. Does your clitoris look at all red or raw? It's possible that the friction from masturbation just caused some soreness. In any case, since this has happened before (albeit a long time ago) you may want to put a call in to your doctor, especially if the pain doesn't subside in the next day or two.
