Q: Why might I have diminished sensation?

Q: Why might I have diminished sensation?

by Dr. Barb DePree MD

You’re young and premenopausal, yet you’ve lost genital sensation and some libido. This could be related to medications such as starting a birth control pill, using SSRI/SNRIs (antidepressants), beta blockers, pain meds, or other medications. It would be very helpful to have an exam to make sure this is normal; measuring hormones may be helpful to discern what might be going on.

Imaging the lower spine/pelvis can be helpful in a case like yours, as well.

A visit to your primary care provider or gynecologist will help you understand and respond to what’s happening! I encourage you to schedule that visit.
