Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have read and understood your problem.

Size of the penis varies from person to person, like other physical features like height, etc. On an average, it ranges from 3.5 inches to 5.5 inches on erection. Your penis is within this range on erection, so do not worry. In pornographic films, they show big penis by injecting drugs, etc., which is harmful. So most people have wrong ideas about penis size. Sometimes, vacuum erection pumps help to increase the size but can cause injury if not properly used. To marry is your decision but you are fine.
