Decrease in size and hardness


I'm a 26 year-old male whose noticed a decrease in penis size and hardnesss for a few years now...when it first happened I saw my doctor and a urologist about it who told me it's impossible for it decrease physically and I do feel 26 is a bit young for these kinds of problems to develop. I think this is an arousal and/or psychological issue, any recommendations or advice ?

Hi there, no the doctor is wrong and right. Yeah you will always have the same amout of tissue/skiin in your penis but size can alter depending on circumstances. The penis is like a balloon and it pumps in blood to make it hard when you get aroused. Now lets say when some men get older they might get blood vessel problems and it wont pump as much blood to that specific area, no matter how aroused they are. This is where viagra comes in. At 26 I seriously doubt that you have any cardivascular problems, unless you are seriously overweight or have some colesterol problems. I also know that the heavier a man gets, the less responsive his body gets to pump the blood to certain areas of the body, because of the size of the heart. The body can be big, but the heart doesnt grow with the body size. Hence why the fatter the man, the smaller and less responsive he is to sexual activities.
This is also why you can see obese people have skin problems and millions of other problems, because the heart can not support and pump nutrients properly around in their bodies. Now ofcourse you could have very low blood pressure for some other reason even if you have a normal body weight.

You can have low testo levels thus making you less aroused and thus being "soft" and smalll. Also alot of other things. For myself have never had any erection problems in all my life, but recently I quit smoking and I got 2x as hard(I am scared that I am gonna burst every time I have sex now LOL) and maybe an inch bigger on a normal basis, I was surprised and scared at the same time. But it was ofcourse a very nice surprise for me. So yeah even little things like smoking can make you softer and smaller. There are alot of other things that can cause this too, that I haven't mentioned.

Weight gain is a good contributor to both problems you speak of. Have you been steadily gaining over the years?

Re: Decrease in size and hardness

If you have a pituitary problem it can the signals to the testicles to reduce or stop sperm & testosterone production. This will cause the testicles & penis to shrink.
If you are on steriods that can do the same thing.

Get your pituitary tested.
Get your total testosterone, free testosterone, DHEA, LH, FSH, SHBG, & Estrogen E2 tested.

The total testosterone should be in the upper 1/3 of the normal range. The free testosterone should be around 2%. The Estrogen E2 should be in the lower 1/2 of the normal range.

The LH, FSH, & SHBG are hormones telling the testicle what to do. If they are saying produce more testosterone & sperm because you are low & the testicles do not, you may need 250u of HCG 3 time a week to boost the testicle production of testosterone & sperm. Hcg can cause the testicles to return back to size.

If the testicles can not produce & are shutting down, shrinking, you may need to get a prescription for a compounded testosterone gel. It is about 1/4 the cost of the commerical paks. It will cause your testicles to shut down production of sperm & testosterone & shrink the testicles. HcG may keep the size up along with the Gel for the testosterone, but the sperm is gone.

Re: Decrease in size and hardness

Nope, no weight gain really. I'm actually quite slender at 6"1 and 155 lbs. I think I'll try viagra and see how that goes and then try getting the tests someone recommended. Also - if you use viagra to achieve full hardness and erection size, would you have to always use it to get optimum results ?

Re: Decrease in size and hardness

Do the tests first. If "T" is low try the HcG. If the E2 is high it can be lowered.

Viagra/Cialia is after everything else fails.
