Unhappy Help!

Hi guys, first of all thanks for reading my thread.

My problem is that my penis is really small. I know what you're thinking, I'm just paranoid, everyone is different etc. but just hear me out.

I'm 16 and when flacid my penis can and does go to less than an inch, much less. It turns in to this tiny shrivelled bit of skin and even when I get an erection it is not much bigger, maybe an inch or two. I know that when flaccid penises are meant to be smaller and everything but it's tiny and doesn't even remotely look like a penis. I daren't go to my doctor because of how embarassed I am and it is affecting my day to day life i.e. I can't go in the showers at school etc. I'm getting kind of serious with my girlfriend now and I want that to be an option, don't get me wrong I think I'm a little young to lose my virginity personally but there is other things to do that kind of require her to see my penis - something I will NEVER let happen now. Please help! If you need anymore info then just ask I'll pay close attention to this thread, I need this dealt with. Oh, and when I was young I believe the doctors wanted to make a slit in my foreskin as it was tight (possibly preventing growth) but nothing ever came of it so I'm not sure. I don't want to ask my mum about this because it would bring to light the problems I'm having at the minute... Help, please!

Re: Help!

You need to see a doctor about this. I know it's embarassing but it will be the best decision you made. You could be having hormone problems and since you are at the age of puberty now is the best time to address that problem. Talk to your parents about it because it is a serious issue. I waited years before I had the guts to talk to the doctor about symptoms related to low testosterone and now I'm happy I did because it's getting fixed.

Re: Help!

I have to agree, being so young and in puberty there may be something they can do. Even if you have a small penis some woman are ok with that. God made you perfect and regardless of what happens be proud of what you have and what you are.

I can't do it, besides I'd like an idea of what is going on because if I go there and they say there is nothing they can do then I'm going to be embarassed for nothing! I don't think I have low testosterone, I have facial hair and stuff and hair growth has a lot to do with testosterone, right? I could never talk to my mum about it. I was going to take testosterone as part of a workout thing as recommended by a dietician I know so if that is the problem and I take those testosterone supplements then I'll be like self-medicating right?
Thanks for your help!

I really hope so but I just can't get up the courage to see a doctor. Some women, not all - where I live & at my age that is most that do and it would soon get around. Besides, as I said it shrivels into a tiny piece of skin often, that isn't even usable - I have to be at least mildly aroused just to urinate. God did a terrible job on me, far from perfect!

No, definitely not! If it were as easy as taking testosterone supplements to make your penis larger, every man would have a giant penis and the spammers would be trying to sell that stuff instead of the garbage they are selling. In fact, I'd be worried that it would interfere with you body's ability to produce its own testosterone.

If it is a hormone problem, you really should see a doctor so it can be treated properly while you're still in puberty. I guess talking to your dad isn't an option? Is there no way you can make an appointment with your doctor on your own?

I meant in my case but okay. Well it is available freely online so surely the dose won't affect me to that extent?

I don't talk to my dad but as part of growing up I've seen my dads penis, it wasn't huge or anything but it was like average. I could so I don't have to talk to my mum but if I was going to talk to basically a stranger (a doctor) then I'd tell my mum as well.
