Having A Small Penis : A patient's perspective

Having a small penis can result in two consequences. You get a severe lack of self-confidence and esteem to start with. Somehow, being small down there gives you the feeling of being less manly than you ought to be.

Plus, who wants to be caught with a small genital by your guy friends and become a laughing stock whenever you are with them?

More seriously, though, lacking in size could prove to be very detrimental to your sexual relationship. Many women leave their man in search for a partner who is well-endowed down in the trousers department. In my case, my marriage was severely affected because my small size was the sole reason why we had failed to get a child for years!

Only after I started practicing some simple stretching and massaging routines on my male organ daily did I start seeing an improvement in not only my penis size but also my sexual libido and performance in bed! It's pretty easy and should not take more than 20 minutes of your time each morning.

Here is one routine I practiced each morning to stretch my male organ size naturally:

  • • Use a bit of lubricant to smother your penile body
  • • Grip the base of your shaft using your forefinger and thumb in a form of an "OK" sign
  • • Gently place a little pressure on your grip and move your grip upwards
  • • Just before you reach the head part, release your grip
  • • Relax your organ by slightly massaging it

Repeat the above process 15 times a day. What this does is natural to promote a better blood circulation and blood flow to your organ, which aids in developing its size as well as health. There are some natural herbal ingredients that also work to improve blood flow and help you gain size. Read this review of enhancement pills for more information.

To make the whole experience more fruitful, there are several other similarly easy stretching techniques you should include in your morning routine.

Practice doing so for the next couple of weeks, and you should notice a significant change in your penis size and strength... and how much more impressed your woman will be with you!

Testosterone Replacement Therapy and Male Fertility

As one age, the amount of testosterone produced by gonads reduces. This one of the most common side effects of aging and is always associated with male andropause and menopause. However, while still in their productive years, some men suffer low levels of testosterone, a condition commonly referred to as hypogonadism.

This condition can result in erectile dysfunction and low levels of sperm count. Testosterone may be needed to reverse the symptoms of hypogonadism condition if one is diagnosed with the condition.

What is hypogonadism?

It is a condition that makes a body produce low levels of gonadotropin hormone GnRH. Less gonadotropin implies low testosterone and hence, low fertility. Injury or infection in the testes could result to hypogonadism. Also, hypothalamus or pituitary gland infection can cause the condition.

The condition can develop at any age. Also, you should understand that some men are born with the condition and in others, it crops up later in their lives. The treatment for the disease is the use of testosterone therapy.

While seeking medical attention, your fertility doctor may recommend testosterone injections or some other form of testosterone therapy if you are experiencing low levels of testosterone. You should note that testosterone therapy requires regular monitoring because, during treatment, testosterone levels keeps on changing in your body and this may result in unfavorable effects. The following are the possible side effects of testosterone therapy.

  • • Increased risk of liver toxicity
  • • Water retention
  • • Low levels of natural production of testosterone
  • • Can cause prostrate growth and possibly cancer
  • • Enlarged breasts
To avoid the side effects associated with testosterone therapy, it might be advisable to look for natural testosterone boosters like PrimeMale or andro400.

How long does a testosterone therapy take?

Consider discussing your condition with a physician if there are other symptoms apart from reduced fertility which is associated with low levels of testosterone. Testosterone therapy mitigates the effects of low testosterone, and this increases the fertility in men.

For men who are struggling with infertility, testosterone replacement therapy is one of the remedies that one can go for. It is worth noting that not all men who are struggling with fertility problems have low testosterone.

Therefore, don’t just jump into testosterone therapy just because you are unable to make a woman conceive. A blood test is essential to determine the real cause of infertility. If results turn out to be low levels of testosterone, then, you may go for testosterone therapy, and a qualified physician should do it.

Premature Ejaculation and Male Fertility

For a conception to take place, there are two most important things that must happen which includes sexual intercourse with vaginal penetration and ejaculation. If the man ejaculates long before vaginal penetration, then, no conception can occur.

Most men experience premature ejaculation from to time, however, if this happens before vaginal penetration often, then, you should see your doctor.

Causes of premature ejaculation

There are various causes of premature ejaculation which include prescription medication, depression and stress and prostate health problems. However, you should understand that medical conditions are not the only cause of premature ejaculation.

Maybe the man is super sensitive becomes aroused easily and in such a case, he can ejaculate long before he penetrates. Also, getting over excited about sex can also result to premature ejaculation and don’t be surprised, if those men who term themselves normal have experienced this at one point in their lives.

Why some don’t seek help regarding premature ejaculation especially when it affects fertility?

Men who have the problem of premature ejaculation are stigmatized in most cases.

This makes them feel helpless, and that they are less manly and with that, it is hard for them to disclose their problem. However, as men advance in age, they become more mature and feel free to reveal the problem of premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction.

Possible treatment for premature ejaculation

In cases where the premature ejaculation is associated with a medical condition, then, a doctor will focus on the situation and find how it can be treated using certain medications like Dapoxetine or Prosolution. Once treated, the symptoms of premature ejaculation will start fading away gradually.

If the problem does not go away completely, then, your doctor should continue checking for any other cause such as psychological problems.

How many men are struggling with the premature ejaculation?

Don’t be surprised that 100% of men have suffered premature ejaculation at one point in their lives, though the severity varies from one person to another.

However, you should not misunderstand the meaning of premature ejaculation. A study that was done in 1952 revealed that men always ejaculate within the first two minutes of penetration, and this claim satisfies the 2-minute rule, though it is not an accurate measure of premature ejaculation.

As said earlier, excessive premature ejaculation can result in fertility problems especially when coupled with other medical conditions. Therefore, it is worth disclosing your problem to your doctor to give your sex life a new and a good picture as well as ensuring that there are no difficulties associated with premature ejaculation when trying to conceive.
