They all claim one thing, that they could increase the width and length of someone’s penis. Not only that, there are various of advertisement that claims they could increase sexual stamina or libido. But do they really work? And is there any side effect for them?

Penis Size

There seemed to be a fear instilled in men that their penis too small or looks too small to satisfy their partner during sex. The fear is actually very common. Studies, however, have shown that men who think that their penis is too small are an actually normal-sized penis. The studies have also stated that many men have “exaggerated” their idea of normal-sized penis.

The normal size penis when erected it is about 13 cm (5 inches) or longer is a normal size. A penis is considered small when it is measured less than 3 inches when erect. This condition is called micropenis.

On the other hand, there is no scientific evidence that supports that the methods are really effective in increasing the width and length of your penis. Doctors are saying that most of them are a waste of money and even could potentially be dangerous for you.

There is also some exercise that claimed to be able to increase the length of your penis. One of them is known as jelqing. It is a method in which involving hours and hours of stroking.

Basically, there is three types of male enhancement pills; prescription pills, non-prescription pills, and online enhancement pills. The one that you should be most suspicious about is the online enhancement pills. These pills, are not guaranteed by any health organization to have proper ingredients that would benefit you.       

Pumps are also available to increase the width of your penis. These tools work by stretching and pumping your genitalia to increase blood flow and cause a temporary increase in the size of the genitals. However, when it is used improperly,      these tools can cause tissue damage, which can lead to fewer firm erections to the penis.

The market is being hyped by one of the innovation to increase the length of someone’s penis, by using gel. These gels are applied to the penis and the skin would absorb the content of the gel before sexual activity. Like pills that are available, no one can vouch for these gels ingredients. The ingredients could potentially cause or trigger an allergic reaction to you or to your partner.

Another alternative is by getting surgery. This is done by severing the suspensory ligament that attached the penis to the pubic bone, and by moving the skin from the abdomen to the penile shaft. When the ligament is cut, the penis appears longer because it hangs down. However, by doing this, someone could risk the erect penis to be unstable.

Erectile Disfunction

Instead of turning blindly and trusting advertisement, men with a persistent concern should consult with their doctors. For a simple reason that it could be a signal of something more dangerous than not having enough stamina to satisfy your partner.

There is scientific evidence that a decrease in libido or sexual performance can be a red flag of a certain health condition. For example, erectile dysfunction may be an earlier predictor of heart disease.

Another reason for the performance issue can be caused by a low level of testosterone. Testosterone deficiencies can affect mood and energy levels. A topical gel can be prescribed for such cases. However, nonprescription testosterone is still dangerous for health.

However, there is no guarantee that the material that they are using are safe. They could be claiming that they are using a certain exotic ingredient that comes from a certain part of the world that had been used for thousands of year to enhance male performances on the bed. Until unless FDA has claimed in the label, those ingredients are still untested and could possibly bring you harm.

For most men with erectile dysfunction, viagra has become their number one solution. These drugs work by improving the number of blood flow into the penis. For most men, they are effective. However, they also come with numerous side effects such as:

  • Dangerous drop in blood pressure. This can occur in men who are taking nitroglycerin for chest pain or tamsulosin hydrochloride for enlarged prostate. Combining certain drugs materials with viagra can be very dangerous.
  • Heart attack and Stroke

The drugs work by causing arteries to widen in the heart and brain, as well as penis. They could be dangerous if you have had a stroke or heart attack in the last six months prior to usage.

Aside from that, there are common side effects to erectile dysfunction pills such as headache, muscle ache, heartburn, diarrhea, visual changes, hearing loss, facial flushing, and many more.
