Tel-jeunes’ answer

Hello koopz! First of all, let me tell you that we are sorry for the delay of this answer. Let’s look at your situation together.

Did you know that the human body is not symmetrical? A lot of people have a leg longer than the other, a breast bigger than the other, two feet that are not exactly the same, etc. The fact that your body is not symmetrical is not necessarily the sign that something’s wrong. I understand that the thing you feel when you touch yourself is intriguing to you. Unfortunately, because you’re asking a medical question, it would be better for you to talk about it with a health professional. You could talk about it with your school’s nurse, your doctor or you could call the Info santé service. To reach that service, you only have to dial 811 (24/7). Tell me, have you talked about it with one of your parent? It could maybe help, don’t you think?

Don’t hesitate to call us if you need to. Take care!
