Why does excitement feel uncomfortable?

Tingling in the genital area? That could be the reasons

Sometimes your vulva is moist or swollen. And in some cases it itches and burns. Such symptoms can have various causes. For example, an itchy vulva often indicates a yeast infection. But in some cases the change is simply due to natural factors. When you are aroused, your vagina will automatically become moist, this is normal. And there is nothing to worry about that your vaginal discharge changes during your menstrual cycle. But if you have the feeling that something doesn't feel right or even uncomfortable downstairs, then definitely discuss it with your gynecologist. "Lumps, bumps, discomfort, itching, changes in the color, size or symmetry of your vagina should be examined by a doctor," says gynecologist Dr. Adeola Olaitan, because such things can indicate serious illnesses.
But what if your vulva somehow starts tingling? What does that mean? There are several reasons for this:
When you are aroused, blood rushes to your vulva. You start to get wet and your genitals swell a little. For some people, this excitement feels like a tingling sensation. For others, it's more of a throb. Some people may even feel both. It feels really good - so enjoy it!

You are about to have an orgasm (or you have or have just had one)

Likewise some describe. that you feel a tingling sensation shortly before, shortly after, or during an orgasm. While this feeling is unusual, it is nothing to worry about. However, if the tingling is accompanied by pain or numbness, this could be an indication of an illness - then you should seek medical advice very quickly.

You have a vaginal thrush

In addition to itching, burning, or a crumbly discharge, a tingling sensation can also be a symptom of a fungal infection. As soon as you treat them, the tingling (and all other symptoms) should go away.

You have a urinary tract infection

Common symptoms of a urinary tract infection include a burning sensation when peeing, frequent urination, and cloudy urine. Some people also report a tingling sensation, especially when urinating.
Some people who have genital herpes report tingling in their legs, hips, buttocks, or genital area just before the herpes breaks out. If you experience this tingling sensation, it may be time to start taking an antiviral drug. This can relieve symptoms or even prevent the outbreak and speed healing.
During pregnancy, your body produces more of a hormone called relaxin. This hormone loosens the ligaments, which can jam the nerves. This can cause a tingling sensation. In addition, your growing uterus can put pressure on your nerves during pregnancy, which also causes the tingling sensation.
If your vulva feels numb or tingly after cycling, it is because of what is known as "saddle numbness". While this is uncomfortable, it is basically just a result of the additional pressure on your pubic area.

You could have an illness

A tingling vulva is sometimes a sign that you have an illness within you. These include multiple sclerosis, vulvar cancer, persistent arousal disorder of the genitals and restless genital syndrome. In these cases, the tingly feeling is accompanied by other things like pain and numbness.

You use a special lubricant gel

Some lubricants cause a tingly sensation in the pubic area. They are then often labeled with "tingling", "cooling", "warming" or "intense". This may feel a bit weird at first, but once it gets down to business, you'll notice how intense sex can feel with it.
