Hi,
Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your symptoms. I just came online to see that you have been waiting for sometime so ill quickly answer this question for you. Now from what you are describing there are a few problems which can cause excessive sensitivity of the clitoris, the first one is certainly that a few antibiotics can cause excessive sensitivity of the genital region however this is a temporary effect and it would fade once the antibiotics are stopped, usually within a couple of weeks. Now another cause of this would be due to a hematoma of the clitoris. This can be due to a small amount of bleeding inside the clitoris. This type of collection of blood is essentially the same as a bruise. It would again fade over time and usually needs no treatment.

Pain in the clitoris (as opposed to soreness caused by sex) is unusual. In most cases, it's due to vulvodynia. This is a condition where the vulva – or parts of it – becomes tender. This can be diagnosed on the basis of a clinical examination.

Another cause can be an infection, in many patients who have a kidney infection it can sometimes also cause an infection of the genital tract and you could be experiencing this pain because of the infection spreading. if this is the case then it should be evaluated with the help of a simple clinical examination and it is possible an additional antibiotic may be needed.

Also if you can tell which antibiotic you are on i can confirm whether it causes clitoral pain or not.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
