I have noticed over the past couple of year my clitoris has been shrinking. I had a hysterectomy about a year a go and my clitoris is almost nil. Any feedback welcome.

Re: shrinkage

I'm glad you joined and hope that you will find information on this site that is helpful, along with support from anyone who can relate.

While you wait for input, it would be helpful if you would complete your Member Survey. Having that information will better help us when replying on threads you post around the site.

Hopefully someone will be along soon to share from experience! If you haven't already discussed your concerns with your doctor, be sure to do that as well.

Re: shrinkage

You are not alone. The same thing happened to me, but within weeks of my TAH. Very scary since I didn't even know it was a possibility. Thankfully, my doctor was great and treated my clitoral atrophy with testosterone 2% 2x per week. There are some side effects, but I consider them well worth it. Before the medication, I had absolutely no clitoral sensation, and physically, the clitoris was virtually non-existent.

Hope this helps.
