FDA has identified an emerging trend where over-the-counter products, frequently represented as dietary supplements, contain hidden active ingredients that could be harmful. Consumers may unknowingly take products laced with varying quantities of approved prescription drug ingredients, controlled substances, and untested and unstudied pharmaceutically active ingredients. These deceptive products can harm you! Hidden ingredients are increasingly becoming a problem in products promoted for sexual enhancement.

There’s a pill for everything, whether you want to remove stress or ditch some weight. So it should be no surprise that there’s a pill for penis enlargement as well. “Men spend millions on these every year and it is a complete waste of money,” says Tiffany Yelverton, a Sex Educator, Sex Coach, Speaker, and founder of the Sexual Wellness company, Entice Me. “A pill is not going to make the penis larger. Neither are herbs or supplements. It may temporarily make the man feel like he has a stronger erection, but it won't be longer or bigger. Calcium will not increase size or strength and actually too much calcium can cause the opposite effects,” says Yelverton.
This is not some fanciful idea, or is it theoretical hogwash. Evidence from one study of 367 military personnel, all men, and no one older than 40, found those who felt most satisfied in terms of male genital self-image had lower levels of sexual anxiety and better sexual functioning. And what about the self-doubting ones, those who disliked the appearance of their member? The researchers found the opposite to be true in some (though not all) cases. Dissatisfaction led to anxiety, which led to sexual difficulties — a vicious cycle.
It seems every guy either wants to tell you how huge his penis is, or make it bigger than it is. And there are lots of methods out there that claim to be able to help. From drugs and supplements to devices and injections and even surgery, there’s lots of options. But do they actually work, and are they something you want or need to get involved in?
Chicago urologist Laurence A. Levine, MD, director of the male fertility program at Rush University Medical Center, tested the FastSize Extender on 10 men afflicted with Peyronie's disease, which can cause bending and shrinkage of the penis. At the end of the six-month study, which was funded by the maker of the FastSize Extender, Levine found increased penile length and reduced curvature in every man and increased girth in seven of the men. Calling the results "remarkable," Levine now prescribes the device to many of his Peyronie's patients and reports no significant complications. (Levine has also worked as a paid consultant to FastSize Extender.)
How Does it Work? There are a few different types of penis enlargement surgery based on different principles and on the desired outcome. One method is to transplant fatty tissues from elsewhere in the body into the shaft of the penis – this can be successful but is described as being “visually odd”, and the results often disappear within a year as the fat is metabolized. Another technique is to disconnect some supporting ligaments. Reports suggest that this can offer a few fractions of an inch in length, but leave the erection pointing down and not up.
I bought my first pump in 1990. My issue was, while I was just over six inches in length erect, I was skinny. I used to do a half an hour session prior to my then lover arriving for sex. She was 18 (I was 24) and she thought I had the biggest dick ever. The reason: my veins were flush with blood and I was artificially inflated. But, over time, with regular pumping, the capillaries expanded for good, the muscles in my penis became bigger and stronger, and I gained noticeably in girth.

Pills to treat erectile dysfunction can be prescribed to you on the NHS or by private health practices, online or in person, safely and legally. These generally work by relaxing the muscles of the penis and temporarily increasing blood flow to help you get and keep an erection in order to have penetrative sex. These pills will only treat the physical symptoms of your erectile dysfunction, and do not treat the underlying cause (which can be physical or psychological).

Penis becomes erect by absorbing blood into its spongy chambers. Thankfully, these chambers can grow and become bigger with the help of proper exercise routine. There are around 50 exercises that can increase penis size but don’t worry you don’t need to practice all of them. I am going to show you only a few exercises that can help you achieve results quickly.
Amr Raheem is an andrology specialist (meaning his focus is on medicine relating to men) at University College London Hospitals, as well as a surgeon at International Andrology, a private clinic in the capital. Over the past 15 years, he has carried out more than 250 enlargements. “There is no typical patient,” Raheem says. “All professions, all ethnicities, married, single, gay, straight, rich, poor. It’s across the board. And all ages. I’ve worked on men in their 60s – I don’t know if they go out and use it afterwards. Early 20s, I won’t do. These are still boys. They must get to know it before they change it.”

"They're a complete waste of time," says Professor Wylie. "Pills and lotions have no proven benefit. If they were effective, they would be on sale at chemists. Using a lotion may help a man become more familiar with his penis, which some men shy away from. So lotions can help a man become more comfortable with his penis but they certainly won't make it any bigger."
Herbal remedies, Kegels (pelvic floor exercises — learn more here), and exercises have all been mentioned as potential ways to make your penis bigger. However, we’ve searched and searched for medical evidence that these techniques will work to grow your penis, but there’s simply zero, zilch, nada, no evidence. You may find lots of unverified anecdotes, which come from a sample size of one, but they simply cannot be trusted. After all, no one on the internet knows you’re a dog (or liar). We recommend that you avoid these techniques.
