Ask Anna: Clitoris enlargement pros and cons
Frontiers | Treatment of the Enlarged Clitoris | Pediatrics
There is no standard size for a clitoris, but it usually grows with sexual arousal. When a person is not aroused, a hormonal imbalance or another medical condition can cause enlargement of the clitoris. The clitoris is a female sexual organ. It is located just above the urethra, where urine is released from the body. The medical community refers to an enlarged clitoris as clitoromegaly or macroclitoris.
Treatment of the Enlarged Clitoris
Management of the enlarged clitoris, because of its import for sexual function, has been and remains one of the most controversial topics in pediatric urology. Early controversy surrounding clitoroplasty resulted from many factors including an incomplete understanding of clitoral anatomy and incorrect assumptions of the role of the clitoris in sexual function. With a better understanding of anatomy and function, procedures have evolved to preserve clitoral tissue, especially with respect to the neurovascular bundles. These changes have been made in an effort to preserve clitoral sensation and preserve orgasmic potential. It is the goal of this manuscript to describe the different procedures that have been developed for the surgical management of clitoromegally, with emphasis on the risks and benefits of each.
Because of the nature of the topic, some columns contain language some readers may find graphic. I was wondering what your opinion was on clit enlargement? But, fine, if you insist, we will not talk anymore about the miraculousness of paint, and instead discuss genital modification.
