Hi. I am a woman and I masturbate often, but sometimes after I do so (like, the day after or so), ,y clitoris becomes sensitive to the touch. This is different from the sensitivity right after I have an orgasm because it happens much later, lasts longer (maybe a day or so), and feels different. It doesn't hurt very much, and it only hurts when I put pressure on it--almost like having a bruise. Is it a result of masturbating too much?

Do you also use a good water based lubricant when masturbating? It may be that you need to be if you're not. Also, it may be that you're just being a little bit rough or your nails need trimming, so that's something to try as well.

I do use lube, and the pain isn't at the skin level anyway (as it would be if it was irritated)--it feels like it's underneath. My fingernails are short--I am learning piano--and I'm only as rough as I need to be.

When we get aroused and then stimulate our bodies, they do become much more sensitive, most of the time. So, feeling increased sensitivity afterwards isn't that unusual.

Since it doesn't sound like you're experiencing serious pain here, I'd not sweat it, but you can always check in with your sexual healthcare provider to be sure.
