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.

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.

The : The itching and pain could be from a fungal (yeast) infection localized to this area. 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.

Best of luck. ...Read more
