Penis-lengthening surgery is also an option for men, but it is a highly controversial procedure. The American Urological Association says a common form of lengthening surgery (involving cutting the suspensory ligament of the penis) has not been shown to be safe or effective. The group also refuses to endorse surgeries that inject fat cells in the penis with the goal of increasing penile girth.
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.

Men dealing with erectile dysfunction (ED) have a higher risk of dealing with penile shrinkage. One study that included 1,027 adult men looked at normal adult men and ED patients with no differences in height, race, weight, and age. The ED patients have a significantly shorter penis length, showing an association between ED and shrinkage [29]. Another case-control study also found that both diabetic and nondiabetic men with ED dealt with a decline in penile dimensions, and the decline was even more prevalent in diabetic patients [30]. Working with your doctor to find an effective treatment for ED may help prevent shrinkage due to ED, and if you have comorbidities like diabetes along with ED, effectively managing both may be important to prevent a decline in penile dimensions.
The appearance of your genitals is affected by temperature and your state of mind. Feeling cold and anxious will cause your testicles and penis to shrink. In contrast, they will appear larger when you are warm and relaxed, such as after a bath. Heterosexual men tend to only glimpse other men’s penises from a sideways view in changing rooms at the gym. Looking at your penis from the viewpoint of top-down, is a ‘perception-shortening angle’, so it might appear shorter than others, but not necessarily be so. Another common source of comparison is pornography. Given that male porn actors are often employed for their unusually large penises, comparing your body to theirs is not going to normalise how you feel and is likely to add to feelings of inadequacy.
Androgen Deprivation Therapy – Androgen deprivation therapy is used to eliminate as much testosterone as possible in the body to treat prostate cancer. This may be done with GnRH or LHRH agonists, which reduce the amount of testosterone in the body or with anti-androgens, which block the use of testosterone by cancer cells. Unfortunately, the reduction of testosterone can cause genital shrinkage [21]. While other treatments are available if you’re worried about shrinkage, it’s important to weigh the pros and cons with your medical professional when making a decision.
Penis extenders and traction devices are other options often advertised to make your penis bigger, and they are designed to stretch the penis by exerting traction on it. One small study done on 23 men saw a small increase in both flaccid penile length and stretched penile length after using a penile extender [7]. Another small study on 15 patients saw more significant gains in length after six months of using penile extenders, along with improvements in erectile function [8]. It’s important to note that both of these studies are very small, and while they look promising, further studies on penis extension and penis stretching are needed.
The best ways to make the penis bigger naturally are to lose weight in the groin area and for men to do Kegel exercises. “There is almost as much penis inside the body (as an anchor) as there is visibly outside of the body. When a man loses weight, the exterior portion will actually be longer. I believe it is about 1/2"-1" for every 10 lbs lost. It is why often skinny guys seem to be more well-endowed,” says Yelverton. Kegel exercises strengthen the pelvic floor and the majority of men in studies report longer and stronger erections (which men often equate to size).
Consider these two exercises as the ‘beginning’ exercise for at least a month. Try to perform them daily and increase reps as you progress,however, if you feel uncomfortable then lower the intensity or stop doing immediately if you start feeling too much pain. Once you complete these beginning exercises for at least a month, then switch to the advanced exercises for stretching and jelqing.
Even those penile extenders and stretchers that claim to work over time would actually just be stretching your flaccid length, and that has absolutely no correlation to how big you get when hard, says Fisch. So don’t waste your money on a product or service that swears it can give you five more inches. “There’s no actual scientific study that they rely on."
There are so many different types and variations of male enhancement products available in the market today. Most come from reputable manufacturers and have credible ingredients backing them. However, there are some less-than-reputable formulators who are taking advantage of the need in this area and preying on people’s hopes. This is why we have this page – to weed out the bad products and highlight the good.
Penis length surgery involves cutting the ligament with which the penis is attached to the pubic bone and grafting added skin to the base to increase length. This will increase the size of the flaccid penis by up to 2cm, but it doesn’t affect the size of the erect penis. The cut ligament may also not provide the support it originally did, which means that you might find your erections less satisfactory as a result. There is also a risk that this type of surgery may cause the side effect of pain during sex.
There are a number of additional potential complications associated with these surgeries, including scarring, hair on the base of the penis, a low-hanging penis, impotence, urinary incontinence, persistent pain, infection, sensory loss, excessive bleeding, and even a shorter penis.It may be necessary to undergo additional operations to correct deformities resulting from the initial surgery.
How do penis extenders work? There are two fastening points: “One at the base of the penis and one just before the glans," says Rybchin. These connect to bars or rods that "extend the length of the extender. The bars or rods are lengthened by the wearer to stretch the penis over time. Where design differences come into play is the mechanism by which the rods are lengthened and the comfort features (such as padding) of the device itself."

For men who do have concerns about their penis size, doctors suggest that they start by losing weight. Although your penis won’t actually get bigger, losing weight can reduce this pad of fat around the pubic bone, exposing more of the penis and making it appear larger [17]. Even though it might not make your penis look longer, changes in your body can make it look that way.
“Many men think that the hardest and thickest they can get it just by letting nature take its course and when that blood reaches the penis they get an erection and it ends there. I don’t think that’s the case. It’s like working out in the gym. You will have a whole different workout and your muscles will respond (and look) differently when you have taken a pre-workout, creatine or some other supplement — your pumps will be bigger and your muscles will look fuller. Well the same goes for the penis: if you pop a pill or pump it with a hydro or air pump, you will surely see a difference,” says Debois. The Extenze is one of those popular penis/erection supplements.

For men with performance issues who are physically healthy, Boyle often prescribes counseling, such as marriage counseling for men with relationship issues or psychiatric help for men who are preoccupied with a problem in penile appearance. For young men with sexual performance problems and no signs of physical problems, Boyle may prescribe counseling and a low dose of Viagra as they work out issues of insecurity. "They need reassurance from a physician that everything is OK," she says.

The sheer symbolism of what’s in a man’s pants may be a factor. As Harrison Pope and Katharine Phillips write in their book on male body obsessions, The Adonis Complex, genitals have been equated with “virility, procreative potency, and power” throughout history. This has been compounded by an apparent rise in general masculine vanity. Figures from the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons show the total number of male procedures doubled between 2005 and 2015, with breast reduction, rhinoplasty and neck lifts especially popular. For those in need of rejuvenation, surgery is cheaper and more easily available than ever.

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.

Of all the sex-related topics out there, the one surrounded by the most myth is definitely penis enlargement. If you’re a guy who’s ever checked their spam folder, you’ll see reams and reams of emails promising more inches with pills, creams, surgery and more. Don’t trust them, obviously — however, there are so many who are trying to sell people on having a bigger penis that there must be more to it, right?


Popping Pills. This is another method which should be given a mention since there are so many "penis pills" out there claiming size gains are possible by simply popping pills. These do actually have their place as there are effective herbs out there that will increase size, but once again it is only temporary. The other catch is that the size is most noticeable in the state of erection. That is the effective penis pills (and there are a lot of non-effective pills out there as well) will make your erections much harder and stronger. This results in even more blood being pumped up creating larger looking erection size as well as a much more "veiny" look.
The penis reaches adult size over a number of years during puberty (the years during adolescence when boys and girls grow and change to become adult men and women). A boy who matures more slowly than his friends will not get an adult-size penis until late in adolescence – and this may cause anxiety or make him feel as though he has an abnormally small penis.
No herbal remedy can restore erections like Viagra and its prescription counterparts, says Steven Lamm, MD, an assistant professor of medicine at New York University and author of The Hardness Factor. But Lamm says these remedies may be appropriate for men who have experienced a decline in sexual performance but do not suffer from a diagnosable sexual problem. Lamm has endorsed an herbal remedy, marketed under the Roaring Tiger label, that combines horny goat weed and other herbal extracts with the amino acid L-arginine. (The supplements are made by the same company that makes the FastSize Extender.)

The FastSize Extender device promises results, but it's far from quick and easy. Just ask Bob, a retail manager from New Jersey. He says he's gained over 2 inches of erect length. All it took was 25 months and over 2,600 hours wearing the device, typically five hours a day, seven days a week. "I was afraid my girlfriend would think I was a freak, but she was supportive because she felt a difference in her satisfaction and I felt more confident in myself," Bob tells WebMD.
The reason you are looking for how to get a larger penis is you want to see some extra inches in your penis. Therefore, it makes sense to track your progress. You can use below table to track your progress and update these measurements after every 4-6 weeks. By tracking your progress, you will remain motivated and see results that you were hoping for.
One Stockport-based surgeon, Ravi Kant Agarwal, was struck off (though later allowed to practise again) after botching two procedures. One of his patients, the General Medical Council heard, was left with a penis “bent like a boomerang”. Agarwal was criticised for failing to explain potential complications and misleading patients about the possible outcome, as well as for not having anaesthetic backup during the operations.
Chances are, even if you are well endowed, that you’d like to make your dick bigger. It’s basically just the way the male brain ticks, that guys with big dicks want to be titanic, and average hung guys would like to be really big, and small guys… well for small guys the matter tends to become something of an obsession that can lead to painful surgery, injurious penis...
In case if you feel discomfort then next day don’t increase the intensity. If it is too much discomfort in your last penis exercise session, then try to decrease the intensity of your exercise routine slightly. Remember, the goal is growth, not pain. A little bit of discomfort is normal but make sure don’t hurt yourself. The injury will not take you anywhere, and you will not achieve your goal.
If you think that penis implant surgery may be the answer to your quest to make your penis bigger, the opposite can actually be true. Following the implantation of a penile prosthesis, some couples have reported dissatisfaction with penile girth and length. While penis implant surgery may improve penile rigidity, but it may confound a couple’s satisfaction with penile size to variable degrees [26]. Another review found that loss of penile size is a common complaint after penile prosthetic implant surgery, and pre-insertion, intraoperative, and post-insertion strategies are recommended to address these issues to reduce dissatisfaction with size after penis implant surgery [27].

When we asked over 2,000 women across the world what was important to them in the bedroom, what consistently came across in their answers was that women care a lot more about things like foreplay, intimacy and a sense of connection than something like your size. So the conclusion: no, she doesn’t really care about the size of your penis. She probably cares a lot more about you.


Depends. Some methods seem to be getting better responses than others. “Studies are being done to improve male girth through injections of hyaluronic acid, which is used as a filler (and is used in orthopedics to improve knee arthritis),” says Dr. Steve from SiriusXM's Weird Medicine on FactionTalk. (Here's a study that supports what Dr Steve is talking about). “The average vagina is 4 inches deep, so girth is much more likely to enhance pleasure for the woman than an increase of length, given that the average male penis length is approximately 5.5 inches,” says Dr. Steve.
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.
