Customer Question
I am 45 and...

I am 45 and I had a hysterectomy a year ago and I notice my clitoris size has shrunk so small it's like I never had one. What if anything I can do to bring it back?

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

No my appetite is good. Since the surety I've been having vulva itching which I've been to the doctor several times for.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Not that I can think of I go to the doctor regular I'm up to date with all my tests and exams in fact I got a appointment today.

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.
