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.
Many doctors question whether the benefits of lengthening surgery outweigh the risks. A 2006 study found that only 35% of men were satisfied with the outcome of surgery, which added only half an inch, on average, to length. Men who are overly preoccupied with penis length tend to have unrealistic expectations of surgery and should seek counseling instead, the authors wrote.
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.
Obviously my gf broke up the week after I had my issue. I don’t blame her for anything, it was my own insecurities that led me to my decision. I’m a young guy who didn’t know how to deal with the situation and I ended up doing something stupid. I’ve been majorly abstinent over the course of these four months or so. I didn’t touch anything down there until about two weeks ago. It’s been a challenge but I’m putting my health first.
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).
Traction is a nonsurgical method to lengthen the penis by employing devices that pull at the glans of the penis for extended periods of time. As of 2013, the majority of research investigating the use of penile traction focuses on treating the curvature and shrinkage of the penis as a result of Peyronie's disease, although some literature exists on the impact on men with short penises.
So how can we be sure it really exists? “Because the number of men seeking surgery, or the growth of this strange industry selling pills and other so-called enlargement remedies, these numbers do not map up with the numbers of men who actually have a significantly smaller penis than average,” Veale says. “So, these men are worrying about – and seeking solutions for – a problem they do not have.”
