Is it normal for there to be discomfort around my clitoris? I have polycystic ovary syndrome and have been told that an enlarged clitoris is a symptom. Every once in a while I have a slight amount of irritation (itching/pain) that comes without warning.

You can try to use an over the counter vaginal yeast infection cream to the affected area twice a day for one to two weeks. If that does not work try vagisil cream.

If done sooner, a negative result may be due to testing too early. If worried, can do one more test. ...Read more
