Question - What is an inverted clitoris?

Question: I had a doctor tell me I had an inverted clitoris. What does that mean?

Answer: I believe they meant your clitoral hood hides your clitoral glans. Your clitoris does not project out beyond the surrounding tissue. Examine your vulva in a mirror and see if you can see your clitoral glans. Having a clitoris of this type probably is not a reason for concern. There is minimal chance that it could result in local irritation and infection or impaired sexual response. Read the page about clitoral adhesions for more information.
