We've collected the most common ways that promise to increase male dignity and find out if they actually work. Our experts have helped us in this: from psychologists to the association of urologists.
Ways that work
Massage in the red
Among the most popular methods for increasing virility are massage techniques: acupressure and exercises called jelqing. The popularizers of these techniques claim that several months of daily training will help to increase male dignity.
"There is not a single scientific study that confirms the healing properties of massage techniques, " says the specialist. "They just improve the blood supply to the penis, which can make it a bit bigger. But this is a very temporary phenomenon - a few hours, and the effect will wear off.
Experts do not recommend using such techniques, especially with diabetes mellitus, atherosclerosis and congenital anomalies of blood vessels. Various complications can occur, including the disease of priapism, when an erection does not go away even after ejaculation. This is an acute surgical pathology which in the future will lead to complete loss of organ function.
Watch out, heavyweights!
Stretching promises to quickly increase a man's dignity by up to 3 cm: there are various weights that are attached directly to the penis and special stretching devices.
"They really give a raise. But they can seriously injure, namely damage the tunica albuginea of the cavernous bodies, warns the specialist. - As a result, Peyronie's disease may develop - scarred patches form on the penis, which will cause curvature during erection and pain during intercourse. And these consequences are irreversible.
Hormones in harmony
There is an opinion that the introduction of testosterone and drugs that stimulate its production will give extra centimeters.
"It's a myth! The male hormone affects sexual function, not size, explains the specialist. - In addition, the use of such drugs without consulting a doctor leads to a violation of the hormonal chain: a so-called testosterone pit can occur (often observed in bodybuilders who take unreasonably high doses of hormones). This leads to loss of sexual function, male infertility and problems with many bodily systems.
Creams - for a few hours
Advertising creams for penis enlargement are rife all over the internet. They are easy to use and promise fantastic results. This is what bribes men who want to increase the unit to buy.
"These funds are absolutely ineffective: it's like buying a cream to enlarge an arm or a nose, " says the specialist. - The only thing that such a drug can give is a slightly noticeable increase (up to 1. 5 cm) for 5-6 hours. This happens due to the fact that it has a warming and vasodilating effect.
In addition, some creams can be "chemically dirty": contain hormonal supplements and dangerous allergenic components. They can cause both ordinary irritation and mucosal damage, up to a chemical burn.
The vacuum pump has been tested!
This is negative pressure therapy. And it is the only safe remedy that can be used at home!
"In combination with warming ointments, the vacuum pump really gives an increase (1-3 cm) and a thickening (up to 5 mm) of the penis, and also improves erection. - But it is important to understand: the effect will be achieved if the patient exercises regularly and leads a full sex life. It is impossible to increase once and for all with the help of a vacuum pump!
And one more important note: you need to use it carefully and correctly so as not to damage the vessels and the mucous membrane of the penis. It can be used independently only after consultation with an andrologist.
Knife to help, or surgery
It is guaranteed to increase virility with the help of surgical methods. The most harmless is frenuloplasty, in which the penis is lengthened by 1. 5-2 cm. A more aggressive method involves dissection in the suprapubic region of the ligaments that hold the penis together. For thickening (5-10 mm), the imposition of special implants is widely used, and for lengthening and thickening, prostheses can be made.
"But you need to understand that it's forever - it's impossible to return your waist. - Each method has its drawbacks, so you need to weigh the pros and cons. And surgical manipulations should only be performed by a qualified doctor.
Among the contraindications to surgical penis enlargement are general diseases, hormonal disorders, vascular diseases, diabetes mellitus and old age. But before resorting to surgery, it is worth consulting a psychologist. Because a man can agree with the sizes, but due to circumstances (for example, he did not satisfy his partner), a desire to change something suddenly arises. But size doesn't really matter! The main thing for a man is to study his partner.
The whole problem is in society and nature
The "The more the better" stereotype came from ancient times: in most peoples and cultures, the phallus was seen as a symbol of strength and fertility, and the bigger it is, the stronger it is. is wonderful. Thus, the problem of dissatisfaction with height has a social character.
"Little boys don't care about height. Then there is the first acquaintance with the subject of sex - usually by watching porn. The young man correlates his height with what he sees - and the first seeds of self-doubt are laid! Then add anecdotes and stereotypes, and the man begins to complex, "explains the expert psychologist. And yet: which penis is considered small and which is large? "In an erect adult, less than 12 cm is a small penis. The average size is 12-17 cm, and a penis from 18 cm is already considered very large, "explains and reminds the specialist: in psychiatry there is even a diagnosis for those who are not satisfied with their ownheight - "dysmorphic disorder" (it's like anorexia).
In general, before increasing virility, experiment with sexual techniques. But above all, love sincerely and truly. So fun is guaranteed!
