Is there a safe procedure get rid of a hooded clitoris? Is it worth it? Could I do without removing the hood? Would sex be different with it removed?
Why…?: It's normal for your clitoris to have a hood covering it. This helps to prevent irritation to this very sensitive organ.

Better safe than sorry. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
