When do penises start growing?
The first time I remember hearing about the subject was when my friend told me that she had seen a girl with a small one. She said it was like a pea, but much smaller than the size of her pinkie finger. (
I think she meant it was like a pea, but not quite as big as her little finger) At that moment I thought: “That’s weird; why would anyone have such a tiny one?”
But then I remembered that some girls are born with very large ones, so maybe it’s normal.
But how does a person get such a small one?
A doctor once told me that it could be due to something called micropenis. It means “small man” in Latin, and it refers to the fact that most boys don’t grow up to become men because they never reach puberty. They are usually between the ages of 4 and 8 years old. The reason for this is unknown, but there are several theories:
A genetic problem in which testosterone levels are low or absent. This condition is rarer than other forms of micropenis, since only a few percent of children with it will develop into adults.
Exposure to certain chemicals during early development. Specifically, some medicines taken by the mother during pregnancy have this effect. As of now, no studies have found a direct link between the mother’s diet and the size of her son’s genitals in adulthood, but there may be one.
A deficiency in diet or other problems with nutrition. There is evidence that a shortage of essential minerals and vitamins can stunt the growth process, but there is no evidence that this could cause micropenis.
Micropenis can also be caused by a disorder called hypopituitarism, which is a chronic dysfunction of the pituitary gland, that creates deficiencies in several hormones. This condition can also affect other glands and systems in the body. The pituitary gland is a small organ that sits at the base of the brain and it secretes hormones that regulate growth and other bodily functions.
Can you increase your size?
Of course, this is the part many readers are eager to get to: Can you increase the size of your manhood?
The answer is definitely, yes. But sometimes the gains are not permanent and repeated use may cause erectile dysfunction (the inability to achieve or maintain erections). These drugs are not without risk, and you should take these steps before taking them:
Always obey the directions given to you by your doctor.
Do not take any of these drugs without medical supervision.
Don’t use what you buy on the street. There may be harmful contaminants or unknown substances in these pills that can severely affect your health.
Do not expect a miracle drug. No such thing exists yet.
Do not skip doses or stop taking these drugs all together without your doctor’s supervision.
Finally, keep these medicines away from children. There is a small chance that a kid could be seriously harmed, even die from using them.
Keep in mind that many of these drugs have similar names and look alike. So always check with your pharmacist before you buy anything.
Here is a list of the most common ones and what they do:
Vacuum Pumps: These devices, which fit over the male genitals, create a partial vacuum around the genitals. This draws blood into the area and increases size. The man then wraps a tight band around the base of the device to trap the blood in the genitals.
The idea is that a larger blood volume will remain in the genitals after the man removes the pump, causing them to remain larger for a longer period of time.
Pills: These drugs including herbal products like yohimbe, horny goat weed and mucuna pruriens, as well as chemically based ones like sildenafil (trade name: Viagra). The active ingredient in these drugs works to improve the supply of blood to the genitals by opening up the peripheral arteries and by preventing the transmission of certain nerve signals to the genitals.
Injection: Alprostadil is a drug that can be injected directly into the genitals, increasing blood flow to the area. This can lead to an erection in most men. The dosage and how the drug is injected depends on the particular drug, as well as what medical condition you have and whether you are taking other medications that affect potency.
Surgery: There are a few surgical options for men who don’t get results from the other methods. The least invasive procedure is a dorsal either a wedge of skin is cut off the penile base, allowing more of the organ to be seen when an erection is had. Another surgical procedure known as a dermal graft involves taking skin from the buttocks or forearm and wrapping it around the penile base to give it a larger appearance.
A more invasive procedure involves cutting the ligament that attaches the spinal cord to the abdomen. This allows the base of the penile to be free-floating, so erection becomes possible. There is also a procedure that implants an artificial penile prosthesis.
However, none of these procedures can correct Peyronie’s disease or other similar conditions that cause pain and prevent erections from happening in the first place.
Also, be aware that sexual stimulation and physical stamina are required for these procedures to work.
Remember, these procedures can be dangerous. You should always seek medical attention if you have an erection that lasts more than four hours, or if you experience pain in your genitals.
A lot of questions are raised about pills, injection and surgery to enhance the size of genitals. Many men who have a normal size penile length suffer from performance anxiety over the size of their genitals. The reality is, when it comes to sexual pleasure, many women report that they prefer a wider penetration and larger area of contact rather than a longer stroke.
Other questions that are raised about these procedures is the safety of them, which is very relative and subjective. Men who have undergone a penile enlargement procedure typically say that they’re perfectly safe, while others say they’re very dangerous and leave your genitals deformed.
The truth is that no objective studies have been done to confirm either side, so it’s all a matter of perception and whether or not you feel comfortable with putting yourself at risk for potential danger.
The most important thing when making a choice about any medical procedures, including those mentioned above, is to gather as much information as possible. Remember that these procedures aren’t regulated by the FDA so you’ll need to rely on yourself to make sure the doctor you choose is authorized and reputable. Also remember that medical coverage often doesn’t cover these types of procedures so be prepared to pay out-of-pocket or have extra savings set aside for surgical expenses.
