Clitoral Occlusion

From BME Encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

In extremely rare cases excess scarring from female genital piercing (hood piercing) can cause the clitoris to be hidden or occluded. A reader writes,

When I removed my clitoral hood piercing (medium gauge — it was done in 1997 and I can't remember exactly), scar tissue caused my clitoris to retreat beneath the hood. I now have almost no sensation at all. I would advise anyone thinking of getting one not to do it — the risk is simply too great.
