Men: Health facts about penile enlargement


Penile enlargement is one of the hottest engaging topics on the internet.

Interestingly,  there is no reputable medical organization that promote enlargement product save few fake manufacturers.

“I think there isn’t a guy in the world who hasn’t wished his penis were an inch or two longer,” says Michael O’Leary, MD, professor of Urologic Surgery at Harvard Medical School and a urologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston.

According to Mayo Clinic, The average penis measures somewhere between 3 and 5 inches (about 8 to 13 centimeters) when not erect, and between 5 and 7 inches (13 to 18 centimeters) when erect. A penis is considered abnormally small only if it measures less than 3 inches (about 8 centimeters) when erect, a condition called micropenis.

There are various products online that claime to improve the size and extend sexual performance.

For your wife to conceive, does the size matter? Of course not!

Furthermore, most of these advertised product will ultimately pose health danger to the body.

According to Dr. Mark A. Moyad, director of complementary and alternative medicine in the Department of Urology at the University of Michigan Medical Center and author of The Supplement Handbook, stiffness topped the list of what matter during intimacy in a survey that involved sexual partners.

An internet survey conducted by the FDA in 2009 found that one-third of supplements that claimed to improve sexual function contained undisclosed prescription drug ingredients or similar substances, a potentially serious health hazard.

Different companies out there want to make money by selling their products, but how safe are these products?

“To date, there’s never been cream, a pill, or anything of that nature that’s been shown to benefit phallus size,” says Thomas J. Walsh, M.D  an associate professor of urology and director of the University of Washington Men’s Health Center.

Evidence from one study of 367 military personnel, all men, and no one older than 40, found those who felt most satisfied regarding male genital self-image had lower levels of sexual anxiety and better sexual functioning compared to those with less confidence.

For you to improve sexual performance maintain overall healthy body; work on physical activeness.

What are some of the penis enlargement products and methods

Pills, creams, supplements and lotions that contain vitamins, minerals and hormones are advertised to increase the size without documented evidence.

Moreover, it has been found that some of these products contain dangerous substances such as mercury, insecticide and bacteria.

Vacuum pumps are tubes used to draw more blood into the penis, and this will make it swell. When the vacuum is used, the penis, with an accumulation of blood looks bigger.

Using the vacuum for too long will likely damage penile tissues and cause loss of erection.

Jelqing .This method involves the using hands to push blood into the penile head. When jelqing is used, temporarily increases erection.

The technique is safer compared to other methods but lacks medical proof. Constant use of the jelqing may lead to formation of scar.

Stretching involves connecting extender device to the penis with a weight at the end of the stretcher.

Previous studies showed such minimal result; 1 cm increase when used for 6 months.

Best practices to have better sexual performance

Having said that, what other natural alternatives remain to improve personal confidence and satisfaction?

Having a general body health will improve the ability to give your partner satisfying moments.

For other medical conditions, seek help from a health professional.

A workout that involves 30 minutes per week moderates to intense exercise. You will get the stamina you need in the bed.

For better stamina, regularly do work out, moderately 30 minutes daily per week.

Losing weight is not only healthy but improves your sexual lifestyle. Health experts say that having excess fat, especially around the belly will make the penis appear small. Shedding some fat will reveal the hidden part of the penis, making it larger.

“A lot of men who think that they have a small penis are overweight,” says Jennifer Berman, MD, a urologist in Beverly Hills and co-author of Secrets of the Sexually Satisfied Woman.

A balanced diet, including vegetables, fruits, whole grain, proteins, vitamins, and minerals are encouraged.

Processed foods, saturated fats, sugary foods and drinks and red meat should be limited.

Never be in a rush to purchase online advertised penile enlargement products without consulting health expert.
