In this video we will focus on several questions: Is it too small? Can you increase penile length? And much more.
This video is part of a videoseries on sex related medical problem. Find the playlists here:
What is a “normal” penile length?
A lot of people believe the average penile length to be greater than 6 inches or about 15cm. This believe comes from several often-cited studies that relied on self-reported measurements. In scientific terms this data is contaminated with a volunteer bias and social desirability bias. Luckily for us, a recent study looked at the combined results of 31 other studies. Where the penile lengths were actually measured by one of the researchers. Based on these results, the average penile length when erect seems to be between 5.1 and 5.5 inches or 13-14 cm.
Can a penis actually be too small?
Unfortunately, a penis can be too small. In medical terms this is called a micropenis, which is usually diagnosed at birth, when the penile length is found to be well under the normal size range for an infant. This affects about 0,6% of all men.
A micropenis is usually caused by a medical condition affecting androgens. Androgens are a group of sex hormones, which play an important role in the development of someone’s genitals. Mostly impacting the penile length. Assuming there are no other health concerns, a micropenis functions the same as a normal penis.
How is a micropenis diagnosed?
As mentioned a micropenis can be caused by multiple medical conditions. So when a patient visits their doctor with concerns about the length of their genitalia, the doctor will need to do an extensive medical examination to determine the underlying cause.
This includes asking about current complaints, a personal and family medical history and of course a physical examination with a proper measurement of the penile length. The doctor needs to measure the stretched penile length from the tip to the base.
- In infants a micropenis is a length of less than 1.9 cm or 0,75 inches.
- In adults it is a length of less than 9,3cm or 3,7 inches
When to contact your doctor?
If you do worry about your genitalia or your penile length, then please contact your doctor. He/she can maybe reassure you or if necessary can come up with a suitable treatment plan. As this idea of having a small penis can cause men a lot of, potentially unnecessary, stress. Which could cause further medical problems. Therefore it is important you talk about this, with your doctor, partner or maybe a close friend.
Tips and Tricks:
- Grooming or manscaping.
- Losing weight and getting in shape.
- Psychological counseling or psychotherapy.
- Avoid penile extenders, vacuum erection devices, pills, supplements, creams and lotions. There seems to be very little medical evidence for all of these.
- Surgical treatment; a lot of different surgical techniques are discussed in the medical literature. But all of them seem to cause a high number of complications, poor outcomes and little satisfaction for the patients. In a nutshell the juice doesn’t seem to be worth the squeeze.

It is finally time to answer a long-awaited question, a question.
Most men ask themselves at one point or the other: is it too small and is it possible to make it longer bigger, have more gerd well in order to come up with a medically approved and a scientifically based answer? I did my research.
I went through the latest medical articles and I made this video.
So if you do appreciate me reading through a lot a lot of medical articles on penile growth, then I would appreciate you leaving a like as well as maybe even subscribing, because my name is raoul.
I'm a medical doctor from the netherlands and I'm making weekly medical videos to educate my viewers, so they can make healthier decisions.
This video also comes with a quick disclaimer, I'm just the random doctor from the internet.
What do I know about your personal situation? Indeed completely nothing.
So this video has no medical advice.
Just me here entertaining my viewers.
So let's continue now in this video we will cover normal penile length.
Can eye penis actually be too small? When should you contact your doctor, some tips and tricks possible treatment options and much much more so make sure to watch the whole video, so you don't miss any important information.
First of all, let's start with a common medical mid.
Most people believe the average penal length to be 6 inches or 15 centimeters.
However, this comes from several commonly cited studies that rely on self-reported penile measurement.
You heard that correct, self-reported, penile measurement and you don't need to be a doctor or a scientist to know that self-reported lengths of penile measurements are probably not the most reliable source of information in scientific terms, this data is contaminated with a volunteer bias and a social desirability bias.
Luckily, for us, a recent study looked at the combined results of 31 other studies.
In these studies, the penal length was actually measured by researchers and based on the combined results of these studies, the average penal length when erect seems to be between 5.1 and 5.5 inches or 13 to 14 centimeters.
But again we should consider the impact of a volunteer bias, so the actual average length may be even smaller.
Now we know the average penile length, but is it actually possible for a penis to be too small? Well, you need to know here that very small penal length is very, very rare, but worrying about pinolect is very common, especially in the 20 to 40 age group.
In fact, according to some surveys with huge numbers of heterosexual men, 55 percent of all men are unhappy with the way their penis looks and about 45 percent of them wants a bigger penis this, while, according to a similar survey among women about 85 percent of women, are happy and satisfied with the apparatus of their partner.
Unfortunately, the penal length can also be actually too small.
This is usually diagnosed at birth.
When is found that the penile length of the infant is far below the average of the penal length among infants.
This affects about 0.6 of all men.
A micropenis is usually caused by a medical condition affecting androgens.
Androgens are part of a group of sex hormones.
They mostly influence the development of someone's genitalia, mostly affecting penile length, and it's important to know that, assuming there are no other health concerns and micropenis functions, the same way as a normal penis.
Now you might probably wonder how is a micropenis diagnosed and at what length a penis is classified as a micropenis.
As mentioned, a micropenis can be caused by multiple medical conditions.
So when a patient visits their doctor with concerns about the length of the genitalia, the doctor will need to do extensive medical examination to determine the underlying cause.
This includes asking about current complaints, an extensive personal and family medical history and, of course, a physical examination with an exact measurement of the penile length.
The doctor needs to measure the stretch penal length from the tip to the back in infants.
A micropenis is a length of less than 1.9 centimeters or 0.75 inches and adults is a length of less than 9.3 centimeters or 3.7 inches afterwards.
Several blood tests may be necessary, for example, to look for any disbalances in hormone levels and someone might be referred to a urologist which is a doctor that specializes in the urogenital tract.
Now, if you do worry about your genitalia or if you worry about your penal length, then always contact your doctor.
He or she might be able to reassure you or when necessary, come up with a great treatment plan, and this idea of having a small penis can cause men a lot of potentially unnecessary stress which could cause further sexual problems like erectile dysfunction, or maybe even mental problems like mood disorders or anxiety.
Therefore, it is important to talk about this with a doctor with a spouse or maybe with a close friend.
Having said that, there are some tips and tricks which you could implement in your daily life and in your routines, which might help to prevent this or reduce any symptoms.
You might experience.
There is no clear medical evidence for any of these, but, as they might be helpful, I will share them.
Nevertheless, grooming or manscaping may improve your genitalia's appearance and may make it look bigger.
The same is true for losing weight when you're overweight, as fat also tends to be stored in the area in front of your genitals.
This can hide a part of your penis which may make it look smaller.
Losing weight, on the other hand, may make it look bigger by comparison, and another benefit of getting in shape is that it may boost your confidence and it will increase your mental and physical well-being, which brings us to some possible treatment options and, most importantly, for those of you constantly worrying about your penal length.
For those of you that even are experiencing a certain obsession, psychological counseling may be a great option.
Psychological counseling can provide more insights in penis size, as well as your own.
Mental well-being, if necessary, certain types of psychotherapy could also be useful, and medical data suggests that most people that went through psychological counseling do not seek for any other medical enhancement of the penis size afterwards.
So it seems to be a great option, but it may not be the option you were hoping for, and I assume this could have something to do with all the treatment options.
You see when googling how to increase my penis size, you might be bombarded with penile, extenders vacuum, erection devices, pills, supplements, creams and lotions.
Let me just stop you there and save you a lot of time and money in the process.
There seems to be very little evidence that any of these actually work.
In fact, only penile extenders seem to be able to add about one to two centimeters of length.
In some man, we've used it very consistently over a period of months and we've used a device which is not medically proof for this use case, leading to several complications in some of the users.
Do I actually need to say more? No, I don't think so, so I won't do so, which brings us to the last treatment option, surgery and once more, just for the record, I'm no urologist.
So I can only provide you with a brief and potentially incorrect overview, always discuss this with your personal doctor.
Now regarding surgical treatments, there are a lot of different surgical techniques that are discussed in medical literature, but all of them seem to cause a high number of complications.
Poor outcome, little satisfaction for the patients, so in a nutshell, the juice seems to be not worth the squeeze.
