Not everyone is satisfied with the way their penis looks and feels. It is most commonly observed that most men looking for penis enlargement medicines, pumps, extenders or other methods to grow their penis size, already have the average size which is sufficient for a successful and satisfying intercourse.
A study done over 15000 men revealed that the average size of penis is just over 5 inches in the erect state and just over 3 inches in flaccid state. This is almost an inch lower than what we consider as normal at 6 inches. So if your size is around 5 inches but you are still looking for panis increase medicine, its time to think again.
Why Men Have So Much Anxiety About Their Penis
The penis is a biological marvel tasked with sexual function and urine excretion. The tragedy is that such a vital organ is also the least publicly talked-about one, thanks to the taboo surrounding it. Unsurprisingly, innumerable fallacies have cropped up about penis and the one that stands out is regarding the size.
It’s a known fact that the penis attains its maximum size at adolescence. The growth of the penis and other sexual organs starts with the onset of puberty when testosterone production is at its peak. The penis size then starts increasing gradually with onset of other secondary sexual characters which includes growth of the beard, pubic hairs, heaviness of voice and development of muscle mass along with a speedy growth in height.
When we grow older, we tend to observe other men’s penis size. And if we find our size smaller than others, a sense of insecurity slowly starts to creep in. This sense of insecurity further develops when you hear stories of how women prefer men with strong penises. The size of the penis is often attributed to a man’s masculinity. Men often think that the bigger the penis size, the better it is to satisfy a woman. This coupled with the sense of insecurity often leads to severe anxiety about the penis size. Scientists have also reported through studies that this anxiety leads to other sexual dysfunctions like erectile dysfunction, low libido and total dissatisfaction from sexual intercourse etc.
Why Some Men Have A Small Penis?
There are several reasons why some men have a relatively smaller penis size than others and vice versa. There are two case scenarios here.
- Either the size ceases to grow during the early adolescence or
- The size is fine but it shrinks and becomes smaller with age or following a prolonged illness.
Before we discuss both these scenarios it is important to know that there is a lot of discrepancy around what people consider as the normal size for penis. So for easy understanding we would be counting a penis small if it is below 5 inches during erection.
1) Reduced growth in penis during adolescence:
There are cases where there is reduced rate of growth in the penis after attaining puberty (during adolescence). The main reason for this is low testosterone levels. Testosterone is the male hormone which is responsible for the development of sexual characters in males and helps in the growth of testicles and penis. If for any reasons there is a lack of this hormone during adolescence, then chances are that it may impact the growth of penis and testicles badly. And the size will remain underdeveloped for the rest of the life.
2) Penile Shrinkage:
In some cases the size of the penis shrinks to a smaller size after a prolonged illness. Advancing age is another important factor that may cause your penis to shrink. There are several other factors that may play a role if you find your penis size shrinking. You can read all these factors here in this article.
Complications With a Small Penis:
A small penis size can have a lot of complications. Most of these are psychological though.
- Nervousness about the intercourse
- Relationship stress and depression
- Poor body image and low self-esteem
- Improper erection
- Premature ejaculation
- Erectile dysfunction
- Dissatisfied sex life
Its Not Just A Hype, Penis Size Does Matter:
It is now a proven fact that women prefer sex with men who have larger penises. A study conducted in the United States confirmed that women find it sexually more appealing and satisfying if their partner had a larger penis. Also there is a greater dissatisfaction among males with respect to their penis size even if they thought their size was average.
A study conducted on 110 individuals showed that even if men had a normal penis size, the fear of not being able to satisfy the female partner and being laughed at when naked was severely damaging their psychological state. Most men also believed that their female partner would not find his size ideal for a full sexual satisfaction.
Now superficially these are just the presumptions that men have about their penis size, but if you dig deep in to this, you will find that these thoughts ultimately damage the confidence and self esteem of these people and this causes several associated / psychological issues to creep in which also includes sexual dysfunctions including erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, low libido and fear of failure in a sexual relationship.
Commonly Adopted Measures For Penis Enlargement:
Given the fact that size does matter, the real deal is how to increase penis size safely, quickly and effectively. Modern medicine employs a plethora of approaches to counter micro-penis, ranging from surgical intervention to mechanical devices and panis long and strong medicines. Penis enlargement surgery is one of the best options for adding a few extra inches to the penis but the results are not always as intended and the risk of side-effects runs high. Owing to this and the costs involved in these type of cosmetic surgeries, most men opt for less expensive and safer alternatives like penis extenders, vacuum pumps, penis enlargement oil and dick enlargement pills.
(1) Penis Extenders
Penis extenders are a special type of devices used to increase the flaccid penis size. It is one of the most commonly used method for penis enlargement. However it does nothing except stretching the penile tissues and its supporting ligaments to make your penis look longer. There is no growth in the penis tissues.
Doctors say that you can increase the flaccid penis length by up to 1.5 cms with just 3 months of its use. The Journal of Sexual Medicine published a study done by Urology Research Center, Sina Hospital, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran, which also supports this claim.
However, this is to be noted that with time the effect seems to fade and the size of the penis will shrink back to where it was prior to the use of the penis extender.
(2) Penis Enlargement Pumps
Penis enlargement pumps are another popular type of penis enlargement devices used by many men in a hope to add a few extra inches to their penis size.
Penis pumps use vacuum to create negative pressure when applied to the penis. This leads to two physiological phenomenons inside the penis –
1) The negative pressure causes more blood to flow inside the penis and accumulate there for as long as the negative pressure is created.
2) Due to the pressure being applied there is also a certain degree of traction which loosens the ligaments that connects the penis to the pubic bone.
Collectively these two factors cause engorgement of the penile vessels, a slight edema (swelling) due to plasma (blood fluid) oozing out of the vessels and lengthening of the penis due to elongation of the supporting ligaments and other tissues. This makes your penis look larger than it actually is. The problem with penile pumps is that the results are usually not permanent and there are several side effects and risks of damage to the penile tissues with these devices.
(3) Penis Enlargement Medicine, Pills, Oil and Creams
Most of the penis enlargement medicines sold in the market are total crap. There are hundreds of brands to increase penis size, all claiming to be the best penis enlarger claiming to have a superman effect and claims that are practically impossible.
How can a pennis enlargement pill increase your size by 4-5 inches within a few days? We have seen so many advertisements with these kind of tall claims and fake promises. The reality is, it is really very difficult to find a penis enlargement medicine that is genuine, promises you what is achievable and does not make false promises.
It is usually understood that the size of your penis can not be increased with penis enlarge medicine. But this report published on researchgate.net has something else to say. This study examines the effect of vitamin d3 on adult human penis. The study revealed shocking observations and an average increase of 0.46 inches in length and 0.532 inches in girth was recorded. Though the study was in preliminary stages and more concrete study, examination and experiments need to be done to come to a final judgement. However, this study, if taken further can be the foundation stone and gateway for future research on penis enlargement medicines.
Does Ayurveda Has Any Medicine For Penis Enlargement?
Ayurveda is one of the oldest systems of medicine in the world today. It is a traditional Indian system of medicine that has answers to some of the most complex medical conditions. The problem with these types of traditional medicines and treatments is that they are scientifically not proven. And that is why most modern scientists and doctors does not believe in them.
The situation is gradually changing. With increasing popularity and mass scale acceptance of Ayurveda, companies have started funding ayurvedic researches and many more clinical trials are being conducted to prove their efficacy.
So far the results of these studies have been very encouraging and most of the claims made in ayurvedic manuscripts that were otherwise rejected due to the lack of data, are now being accepted globally.
Ayurveda offers several aphrodisiac herbs that not only helps to improve the sexual performance but also helps to increase penis size. Though there is very little or no scientific data in its support, but the same herbs have been used for centuries with excellent results. So it would not be a surprise if the same is proven in future when statistical and pharmaco-physiological studies are done on these herbs to ascertain their efficacy for increasing the penis size.
