Yes, healthy: Yes, it's fine for a woman to masturbate. Some cultures may feel differently, but in your own privacy you have choice. It can be a way to learn about your body and appreciate its responses. Be well.

Normal: Unless masturbation interferes with your ability to live your life and function successfully in the world, then feel free to continue. Masturbation is a normal part of life for most people.
