Caused by Sexual Stimulation
experience muscle twitching vaginally after sexual stimulation
from manual stimulation or a sex toy
such as a vibrator or electrostimulation
device. This is called fasciculation (or muscle twitch)
and is a small, local, involuntary muscle contraction (twitching)
visible under the skin.
happens after tensing the muscles. While it is not as common
vaginally, it can happen and is most likely nothing to be worried
about. It is very similar to getting a muscle twitch in your
eye when you read a great deal and have strained the muscles.
The twitching usually subsides in a few days. Finding ways to
relax the muscle such as a warm bath and holding off on sexual
activity for a bit is a good way to treat it.
