I am a 20 year old women / girl in a 3 year health monogamous relationship.
On the 1st i fell and was unconscious for 2 min they too my to the hospital and a week latter i under went a simple surgery. a week latter my mother kicked me out of the house for a week and on last friday i came home. My menstrual cycle was about to start on the 1st and all pms stopped after i fell. i finally got it on thursday. (i had Been taking some black cohosh to try and get my period to start ) i am living at home not working and going to college. i have not been eating much only when im hungry but my appetite is less than normal. i have not been sleeping much if at all. this week i have been stressing about tests in school. any way on to the point starting on like sunday, when ever i can i have ben looking at porn (some thing i do 3 time a month normally) and playing with myself every day this week about 2-4 times a day. my bf and I have a healthy sex life. but this last time after i came several times and we had finished i waited for him to jump in the shower and i played with myself till i came 2 more times. this is not normal for me thought i am a multiple kinda girl i am always satisfied with 3 or 4. what is wrong with me ?

I feel sick and ill about all the masturbating and i am normally very happy and comfy with my sex life all parts of it. I cant feel like i can fully function right now. btw i am no longer on my period it only lasted about 5-6 days

I agree with Cary. You can have your androgen levels measured. It is perfectly normal to have a high sex drive and have multiple orgasms caused by a more innervation in the cervix and vagina than other women. You will never loose these sensations as long as you stay away from pelvic surgery. But I would suggest that you encourage your boyfriend to give you the number of orgasms that you need for satisfaction. He has other things than a penis that will be able to satisfy you. Also, your multiple orgasms come from feeling great sensations from nerve endings in the cervix and genitalia that is directly connected to the Thalamus, the place in the brain that feels pleasure and pain. So keep enjoying and don't have a gynecological surgery like a LEEP or a Hysterectomy except to absolutely save your life or you will not have these great sensations. Gynecologist are not usually up on the neurobiology of women and especially those that cause orgasm. Dr. Beverly Whipple just within the past decade determined the science of orgasm, and Dr. Karen Berkley and J.J. Collins have researched as neuroscientist and neurobiologist nerve endings in the pelvic area and genitalia.

Again, a LEEP and/or cone do not necessarily affect your sex life in any way.

Warning, yes, a LEEP or cone can cause chronic pain in the cervix and para-cervical area. The nerves in the cervix are directly connected to the brain stem, hypothalmus and thalmus. Women who have more innervation in the cervix and have orgasms with cervical stimulation have more intense orgasms. Their sex lives can be destroyed by a LEEP or cone along with putting these more sexually evolved women in chronic debilitating pain that requires cervical nerve blocks and pain management. The cervix plays a major role in the orgasm of women who have this type of innervation. Women who have this innervation should avoid LEEP conizations and hysterectomies since cut nerve endings produce pain or numbness, either way, this will contribute to a woman's sexual dysfunction. Consider that LEEPs can also be in mm and in cm. Women who do not experience this type of innervation or sexual sensation cannot relate.

It sounds like you have a lot going on. I'm not clear on what happened with your head and surgery, or how that relates to your sex drive. However, if you are having a lot of anxiety related to the injury, sometimes people who have a strong libido anyway use sex to decrease anxiety. Just as some people eat when they are worried, or exercise, some use sex to take their minds off of things. I don't know if that is true in your case or not, but it seems like a possibility. It sounds though, like you may not be eating properly and your menstrual cycle is off, so I wonder if you have some other things going on.

Since you had surgery I would imagine you will have follow up visits with the surgeon? You may want to discuss what it going on with you at your next appointment. Whether it is related to the head injury or something else entirely, it sounds like you could use some professional help straightening all of this out.

I do want to say that a vigorous sex drive is not necessarily a problem. That is one of those old myths about women, the old nymphomania thing, and just as there are varying levels of libido in men, there are in women. It is only an issue if it worries you, which it clearly does. Please talk to you surgeon or other provider about what is going on with you.

Good luck.
