Women with clitoral pain have intercourse less frequently, according to new research published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
The study, led by Canadian researchers, focused on the experiences of 126 women between the ages of 18 and 69 who had clitoral pain.
Almost 30% of the women had pain daily and 27% called the pain "disabling." The average frequency was two to three times a week. Episodes could last for several hours.
Certain activities, such as wearing tight clothing, exercising, and sitting, worsened the pain.
The pain had sexual consequences as well, with three quarters of the women reporting less frequent intercourse because of it. They also had less foreplay and masturbated less often.
