The internet is packed with banner ads and pop-ups that advertise pills and lotions for male enhancement and enlarging the penis. They often contain herbs, hormones, minerals, and vitamins, but none of them have been proven to work [4]. Some pills have been investigated by the FDA and found to have levels of prescription drugs like sildenafil (Viagra) in them, and the FDA notes that there’s a growing trend of dietary supplements that contain hidden chemicals and drugs [5].
The physiological goal of Big Al’s program is to expand the spongy bodies of the penis — known as the corpora cavernosa and the corpus spongiosum — while simultaneously stretching the tunica that holds those spongy bodies and spreading the suspensory ligaments that anchor the penis to the pubis. Cell walls grow and expand with each exercise session, Big Al tells me, and the compound effect over time is increased length. “One-third to one-half of the entire length of the penile body is hidden behind the pubis,” he notes. “Lengthening exercises like the Side-to-Side Stretch permanently expand these ligaments, allowing more of the inner penis to be exposed, and thereby, lengthening the measurable portion of the penis.”
Prostate Cancer – Prostate cancer itself and the various treatments for it can result in changes in sexual function. We already mentioned how treatments that lower testosterone can result in shrinkage, but shrinkage can also be caused by tissue damage that occurs during surgery for prostate cancer [22]. Some studies on men conducted after radical prostatectomy found that penis size significantly decreased after this surgery [23]. However, studies have found that vacuum erectile devices may prove helpful for penile rehabilitation after surgery and may help preserve penile size [24].
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.

While there are many anecdotal reports online that jelquing is an effective way to increase penis size, no scientific studies have ever concluded that the technique works. Proponents of jelquing claim that regularly stretching and pulling the penis will make the tissue fill with blood, causing it to permanently swell. However, basic penis anatomy contradicts this idea, since the penis is an organ and not a muscle that you can alter or strengthen with penis enlargement exercise. There’s also the risk of penile damage with jelquing, since this technique may lead to irritation, blood vessel tears, scar formation, bruising, pain, and desensitization of the penis [6].
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.

I saw two more urologists and two clinic doctors and told them what was going on. I made sure to be clear about the exact motions I made when I was trying this jelqing nonsense. One told me to have a cystoscopy done and the other said to take another 2 months rest. Cystoscopy came out clear. He still had no idea what was going on and said take a few months’ rest like the other doctor said.

That’s why today I would like to introduce you to penis stretching techniques before you ever come across pills or contemplate surgery. To help you learn about this form of penis enlargement, I’ve sectioned multiple questions that will help you completely grasp the fundamentals of penis stretching and how you can build off of them in order to significantly increase your size.

Well, you are right – no pills or pump can increase penis size. But the thing is that men still use them and do you know why? Because of a hype and a believe. It can be a Placebo Effect or a real thing but men do feel more confided in bed when they use male enhancement products and it looks kike this is what matters at the end of the day. The more confident a man is the better it performs naked.
However, after more than a century of generally dubious and sometimes lunatic penis enlargement attempts, there's still not much you can do. Sure, there are lots and lots of supposed options out there -- penis pills, creams, brutal stretching exercises, horrific-looking devices, and penis surgery. Almost none of it works. The few approaches that can work often have modest benefits and serious side effects. How serious? In some cases, erectile dysfunction-serious.
