Will removing clitoris help to reduce compulsive and excessive masturbation ?

I am a 54 yo female. I have a problem with compulsive & excessive masturbation. I skip meals and don t leave my apartment unless something importment happens. This has been going on for 9 months. I was wondering if I had my clitoris removed. Would that solve my problem?

Hi
This isnt an option.Sexual urges is a complex emotion combining hormonal and psychological elements.You could try counselling with a sex therapist to understand and deal with the problem.
