Hello, I'm Dr Manos, M.D., board certified ObGyn. I imagine you have a question about the relative clitoral size. With menopause changes include shrinkage of erectile structures including the clitoris. I imagine you have seen a gynecologist over the years and can have an updated visit to get these important phases of your life. This action on your part will give you valuable insight on your overall functioning. I hope this is effective information.

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.
