Big clitoral hood caused by masturbation

Hi, my name is [name edited out – I don’t include any personal or identifying details on the site] and I am 12 years old and I am from Finland. (sorry for my bad English) I have been wondering about my big clitoral hood. Is my big clitoral hood caused by masturbation or what is a reason why it has been growing so big? I masturbate quite a lot, I use my fingers and sometimes a vibrator. I have been doing it about two years now, 3 – 4 days a week. Is that too much?

It’s a myth that masturbation can cause any physical changes to the vulva. The tissue down there is very elastic, and it would take a lot of trauma (such as natural childbirth) to cause any noticeable long-term changes. The changes you are experiencing are part of your natural development, and they are probably caused by your body releasing additional hormones during puberty.

With regard to the frequency of masturbation, it is healthy to masturbate often, and 3 to 4 days a week is perfectly fine. Many women masturbate every day, and that it also perfectly ok. Do what feels good to you, and do it as often as you like 🙂

    Clare is correct. Labia is more a matter of generics and congenital development. In fact, masturbation done in certain ways can actually tighten up and tone our anatomy and it is quite common these days to masturbate more often that just 3 to 4 times a week, especially if you are healthy. Masturbation is a safe and wonderful way to explore and condition our orgasm, to strengthen it and increase our appreciation of it.
    I suggest reading Dr. Betty Dodson if you wish to learn more.

    Hi, and thank you for your reply! I would have never guesd that someone is gonna reply to my post! <3 I am masturbating now every day and sometimes even twice a day! I just love that feeling! I am not worried about that clitoral hood anymore. 🙂 But now I am getting hair down there and I don't want it. What is the best way to take them off. I have used my dad's razor for couple of times.
