Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am 20 years old. My penis is 9 inches in erected state. Is it abnormal to have penis of such length? I get my penis hard very easy and fast. I end up masturbating 1 or 2 times a day. Is it normal? At times, I am able to masturbate without my penis being fully erect also. Few mornings I wake up with erect penis which is embarrassing. Please suggest a solution to this. In adult movies, they show when men masturbate a lot of cum comes out of the penis. Whereas in my case not much cum comes out. Please address my queries.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Yes, your penis length is normal.
  • In this age erection on minor scenes or thoughts is very common. And morning erection is a normal thing and it should be there.
  • About discharge after masturbation is that when you do it for the first time or after a long time then only you have it in large quantity. Otherwise it remains small when you do consecutively. So, there is no need to worry.

Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

Thank you for the reply. Is there a solution for early morning erection? Because, it is embarrassing. I used to do masturbation daily. Is there any harm if masturbation is done with garments?

Answered by Dr. Shazia Anjum


Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • Morning erection is a natural phenomenon. I think if we obstruct it, we are hindering natural process.
  • About the masturbation inside the garments is not a problem, but it is better if you do it open.
