Q: Not sure my clitoris is normal

This is kind of embarassing but earlier today I pulled back the clitoral hood to have a look at what my clit looks like. I was thinking it would look like a little red lump, but it looked like a long piece of skin inside the hood and looked like it was kind of folded over at the top, kind of hooked.... what should the clitoris look like? Could I have something wrong with me... could I be injured (I have no pain or abnormal bleeding). Im talking about the actualy clitoris, the bit inside the hood...

Hey there


I would not worry.  Every woman looks slightly different down there.  I found a good web site about female anatomy with images of how diverse things can appear down there.  I think you will see that there isn't one is supposed to look.


I hope this helps!  If you are anxious about anything please do see your gynecologist who can explain better than I can.


Thank you for your question.

Louise, you just described my wife's clit.  I'd say you're quite normal.  And its not embarassing.  Most women can't easily see their clitoris and thus really don't know how it looks.  Hope you feel better.
