Because many young men are concerned about the size of their penis and would like it larger, there are many unethical people or businesses that offer lotions or pills or other types of non-medical treatment to enlarge or lengthen the penis. None of these methods have been fully tested in clinical trials and approved for medical use – and none of them are recommended by reputable physicians. They are taking advantage of a man’s concerns about his penis size (despite the fact that most men have a normal size penis) and seeking to get his money for treatments that are worthless at best. Some can be dangerous or may even damage the penis. None of these methods or products can be recommended or should be used.
Instead of furtively turning to untested methods, men with persistent concerns should consider opening up about them with their doctors. That's because performance problems sometimes act as an early warning signal for serious health problems. Your doctor might be able to prescribe something that can really help, or least provide a valuable dose of perspective about what constitutes "normal" sexual performance.
Atherosclerosis, a condition in which fatty deposits build up inside arteries, may restrict blood flow to the penis and cause erection difficulties. "The small blood vessels that go to the penis can become diseased much earlier than the [larger] vessels that go to the heart," Karen Boyle, MD, a urologist at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, tells WebMD. "In younger or younger middle-aged men, ED is often the first sign of atherosclerosis."
William O’Connor, a 38-year-old mechanic from Northampton, is one of his satisfied customers – and it’s easy to understand why. Think of a large can of aerosol deodorant and you have, roughly enough, his new dimensions. “There was one woman who took one look at it and just went, ‘That thing is coming nowhere near me,’” he says. “But mostly it goes down very well. I’ve seen a lot of eyes light up.”
The fact is verification is sadly lacking for nearly all of the male enhancement products on the market, while in many cases, there are definite warnings against these products. Specifically, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning against dietary supplements to enhance male sexual performance, noting many have undisclosed ingredients that may be harmful. This government agency also cautioned against penis enlargers and erection-maintaining rings in at least one public alert.
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.
Is it effective? Yes and no. With a penis pump, your penis really does grow – noticeably so. However as soon as you release the vacuum, your penis goes right back to original size. There’s no evidence of long-term benefits, but they do have one advantage for sufferers of erectile dysfunction: since the vacuum draws blood into the penis, you can quickly roll on a gently constricting cockring after removing the pump, thereby ‘trapping’ the penis in an erect state. While some people who have tried this technique report positive findings, we suggest consulting a doctor first.
According to the website of one such product, the safe application of traction encourages tissue cells to divide and multiply, a process called cytokinesis. Over time and with great effort this will lead to tissue growth. The FDA considers these low-risk devices (Class 1) and so provides only general controls intended to be followed by manufacturers.
Seriously this product does NOT work. I ordered 4 bottles and rook the max dosage recommended for two months. I saw ZERO gains physically and observed no change in libido or sensation. Absolutely ZERO health benefits. Drink a glass a water instead. Save money and time. I got a FULL REFUND after filing a dispute with my CC. Yes, My VISA saw my side and got my refund faster then you or me can THINK we will be the next Ron Jeremy using this junk. Sorry "jimmy" better luck next time.
Testosterone injections — or making sure your testosterone levels are healthy — will help with erections and sex drive. “I am not sure if it can actually increase size. My opinion is that it could slightly increase size, if the man was severely deficient and then his testosterone levels were balanced. Mainly because he was probably not getting fully aroused with low testosterone, so when it is increased, he would seem bigger. Trans men do however experience clitoral growth when given testosterone, making the clitoris look like a mini penis,” says Yelverton.
You can also try penis traction, a clinically tested method with a penis extender. “A penis extender applies traction to your penis and stretches it over a longer period of time — up to six hours per day. The constant stretch to which the penis is exposed, called cytokinesis, causes natural cell division, which results in a longer and thicker penis,” says Stacy Rybchin, founder & CEO of My Secret Luxury. Once your cells have grown and your penis size has increased, you will keep your extra penis length and girth forever.
