Feel Like My Clitoris is Getting Smaller

I am 42 and have noticed that for a little over a year now, it feels as though my clitoris is shrinking. I have a long history of yeast infections and one or two cases of Bacterial Vaginosis, so I tried using Vagisil for a few months. This is around the time that I noticed the weird sensation of my clitoris getting smaller. I am able to masterbate using a vibrator and lube, but I do notice a bit of a 'zinging' sensation afterwards.

Aside from that, my biggest complaint is that I have a hard time keeping the clitoral hood clean. When I try to pull it back to gently wash, the labia feels very uncomfortable and the clitoris is so tender that it's almost painful to try.

I've Been Getting a Yeast Infection Before Every Period

Dear Dr. Betty,

So since the beginning of this year, excluding June, I've been getting BV or a yeast infection before every period. And sometimes I get both. I've been seeing my gynecologist about this and we have yet to figure out why this is why this is happening. I'm starting to lose it, I feel like I no longer can understand my vulva. I've been married for the past 4 years and we have done some BDSM and played with other people but we haven't played with anyone else for over 7 months.
