It's my understanding that it's not uncommon to feel somewhat aroused during breastfeeding (because of the hormones released, I assume), so maybe that's what happening with you, but the psychological aspect of you being a survivor may be turning it in to pain?|
I had this problem toward the end of out nursing relationship when I would be dry. First thing in the am was ok because there was milk there, but at night the night before..... I think it happens when they are suckling at empty or dry breasts. I feel it in my belly button and my vulva, a sharp kind of feeling that makes me feel like I have an internal almost painful itch. It's NOT pleasant at all. I get the same feeling in my vulva if I stick my finger in my bellybutton too far or too firmly. I really think it's a nerve ending thing.
