Hello,I am Dr. Aren and I will help with your query.Genital mutilation may involve partial or complete removal of the clitoris,this is usually done during childhood .in some cases there partial removal of the labia is also involved.there is definite loss of nerve endings located in the clitoris which help with clitoral orgasms.Female sexual function (FSD)is altered due to psychological factors and the defibulation /clitoridectomy done.Studies have shown that orgasms are possible through stimulation of the G-spot found in the anterior vaginal wall,also all erectile tissues/structures necessary for organism may not have been removed.getting rid of anxiety,fear of trauma and pain and having a loving and understanding partner who is gentle and helpful will allow the woman to have sexual orgasms and gratification.Removal of tough hymen,any structural abnormalities like epidemoid cysts and vaginal/urinary infections must be looked for and treated.Adequate foreplay and removal of anxiety remain the key to sexual health.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
