Though there can be benefits to an enlarged clitoris, there are also a number of risks and downsides. This part of the body is very sensitive and is dense in nerve endings. Procedures that require consistent pressure or force can damage the nerves, which can actually reduce sensation — even if the surface area is technically larger. There are also risks that come with taking hormone supplements, particularly if they aren’t dosed properly. Women who are concerned about the size of their clitoris or who want to explore enlargement options are usually best served by talking to a professional before taking things into their own hands.
