Burning Clitoris! Questions to Ask the Doctor...?
January 19, 2014 6:27 PM Subscribe
I have had a burning pain in my clitoris for the last two weeks. I've been to the Dr. who's prescribed me anti-fungal medication which has only made it worse. I'm going back to the Dr. but I want to be more prepared this time, any suggestions as to questions to ask?

The story. Over two weeks ago, I was seeing this guy and he was rubbing my clitoris, probably for upwards of about 30 minutes. I asked him to stop because my clitoris was sore. This has happened with multiple sexual partners at various points in my life, and by the next day, the pain is usually gone. (I have not had PIV sex with this partner and my last sexual partner was over two years ago, if that's useful)
However, this time, the pain has continued to persist until now (over two weeks later), It is not an intense pain, but more of a mild burning sensation which is exasperated when the clitoris is touched in any way. (and I have avoided sexual activity since the pain first started) There is no accompanying vaginal discharge/bad smells/painful urination or anything
I have visited my local GP who had a look at my vulva-- said that the area looked slightly inflamed but didn't see any cuts or scratches on the area, and prescribed me with anti-fungal/steroid cream about a week ago and which has only served to make the burning worse (it seems)
I am planning on going to visit a doctor again this week... It seems like what I'm experiencing is somewhat unusual (based on my internet searches) and it has me feeling worried that this pain may be permanent (hopefully , I'm only catastrophizing!).
This time though, I want to go to the Dr. with some more useful questions to ask so I can maybe be more effective in getting this thing sort out.
Any help/idea of what this may be/good questions to ask the doctor, would be greatly appreciated. I feel at a complete loss here over how to approach this with the GP.
