Citat:An article published in the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology in July 1992 states that the examination of "200 consecutive normal women at routine gynecological examination" revealed the average crosswise width of the clitoral glans to be 3.4 mm (0.13 inches) with a range of 2.4 to 4.4 mm (0.09 - 0.17 inches) and the lengthwise width was 5.1 mm (0.20 inches) with a range of 3.7 to 6.5 mm (0.15 - 0.26 inches). This means the average clitoral glans is smaller than a pencil eraser. The average total clitoral length including the glans and body was 16.0 mm (0.63 inches) with a range of 11.7 to 20.3 mm (0.46 - 0.80 inches). The clitoral index (CI), the product of the clitoral glans lengthwise and crosswise widths, was 18.5 mm2 (0.03 inches2). There was NO correlation between age, height, weight or use of oral contraceptives and clitoral size, but women who had given birth had "significantly larger measurements."
Dr. Robert Latou Dickinson states in his book Atlas of Human Sex Anatomy, published in 1949, that "normal" clitorises had a crosswise width of 3 to 4 mm. (0.12 - 0.16 inches) and a lengthwise width of 4 to 5 mm (0.16 - 0.20 inches). Based on one hundred examinations, he found five percent of women had a clitoral glans that measured 0 to 2.5 mm (0 - 0.10 inches), seventy-five percent measured between 2.5 and 6.5 mm (0.10 - 0.26 inches) and twenty percent measured between 6.5 and 15 mm (0.26 - 0.59 inches). He mentions others who had given lengthwise measurements of 5.6, 6.7, and 8.0 mm (0.22, 0.26 and 0.31 inches). He attributes the variation in measurements to whether intersexed individuals were included in the sample data, which would account for a larger average size. The determination of "normal" is often arbitrary. An article published in the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology in November 1979 states that clitoromegaly is defined as when there is a CI of greater than 35 mm2 (0.05 inches2), which is almost twice the size given above for an "average" sized clitoral glans, but is still relatively small, as a clitoris equal in size to a pencil eraser meets this definition.
A sto se tice uvecanja:
Citat:The structure of the clitoris does not lend itself to change easily, as the result of mechanical forces. The masturbation habits of most women are not likely to affect the size of their clitoris, other than perhaps causing a slight increase in its size do to better blood circulation if they masturbate on a regular basis. Again, a sign of health not disease. Using unusual force, such as drawing increased amounts of blood into the clitoris with a vacuum pump on a frequent basis, can result in an increase in size as the vascular structures are slowly stretched and enlarged to accommodate the additional blood.
