Your penis size is more normal than you think.
Many websites and advertisements promote various methods including pills, gels, surgeries and injections to lengthen or broaden the penis. All these methods not only do not work but can potentially cause irreversible damage to your penis. Do not be taken in by these lies and scams.
Your penis is very likely more normal than you think. The average penis measures 7.5cm to 10cm when it is flaccid and 12.5cm to 17.5cm when it is fully erect. Only when the penis is shorter then 7.6cm when erect is it considered a problem. This problem is known as micropenis.
There is not one single medical society or organization in the world that approves any method for enlarging the penis. In fact, certain organizations like the American Society for Plastic Surgeons have issued policy statements specifically stating their position against any kind of cosmetic surgery to enlarge the penis.
Pills and lotions have never been proven to work. In fact, some of them might contain chemicals or hormones that can irreversibly damage your body.
Vacuum pumps are used to treat erectile dysfunction. Because they cause the penis to engorge with blood, it might appear to make the penis larger. Unfortunately, excessive pumping can lead to permanent damage of the erectile tissue of the penis. This in turn leads to softer erections.
There have been many surgical methods described to enlarge the penis. None of these methods have been approved by any Medical Organization in the world. Many of them can lead to permanent damage of the penis.
Certain practitioners have tried to use injections to increase the girth of the penis. They inject various substances from Hyaluronic Acid fillers to fat taken from other parts of the body. Some practitioners even use fat from cadavers. These procedures all have potential serious side effect of permanently affecting the sensation of the penis. Furthermore, when these substances are absorbed, they are absorbed unevenly giving the penis a very unnatural lumpy appearance.
If you think you penis is too small there are things you can do.
First of all speak to our Doctors. We will be able to determine if your penis is truly pathologically small or is of normal length.
You might also want to speak to a counselor to address your worries. Sometime all you need is a little reassurance.
Speak with your partner. Your partner might not have the same concerns as you about your penis size.
Losing weight and exercising more will take away that overhanging belly fat and large thighs that can make your penis look smaller than it is. Being in better shape will also allow you to perform better during sex regardless of the size of your penis.
Trimming or removing your pubic hair will also make your penis look instantly larger.Click here to learn more about Erectile Dysfunction Click here to learn more about Premature Ejaculation
More likely than not, there is nothing wrong with the size of your penis.
Don’t be fooled by marketing of cures that might cause you more harm then good.
