Hi doctor,

My penis is small in both length and girth. It not even measures 4 inches. I just need to know is there anything I can do to make it normal.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have read and understood your problem.

  • You have not mentioned whether your 4 inches size is on erection or in flaccid state.
  • There is no medically proven treatment to increase penis size. It cannot be increased unless you have hormonal problems.
  • Size of penis varies from person to person, like other physical features such as height, etc. On an average, it ranges from 3.5 inches to 5.5 inches on erection.
  • In pornographic films they show big penis by injecting drugs, etc., which is harmful and so most people have wrong ideas about penis size.
  • You can test serum testosterone and LH (luteinizing hormone). If they are low, then hormone treatment can help.
  • Sometimes, vacuum erection pumps help. But, can cause injury if not properly used.
  • Moreover lose weight, because one inch of your penis is hidden under your belly fat. Pull your penis and measure the length. Also, pull it daily for 5-10 minutes from under belly fat.

Hi doctor,

Sorry for not mentioning earlier. It is less than 4 inches when erect. The pictures which I have sent are flaccid ones.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • Fine, then first measure it in erect state after pulling from under belly fat.
  • If less than 4 inches, then do hormone tests as advised.

Answer: Hi, Welcome to icliniq.com. The best way to check for an ovulation pain or mittelschmerz is to check for LH (luteinizing hormone) surge with an ovulation kit.

Answer: Hello, Welcome to icliniq.com. The size of the penis has no role in sexual intercourse. If your erection is normal, then stop worrying about the size. If you are not able to move the foreskin freely over the tip, then this should be evaluated by a surgeon. This could be due to phimosis. For more...  Read Full »
