Peni_s size can cause concern in some people.
Having a small peni_s might affect a person’s self-confidence and lead to feelings of anxiety.
One of the many myths surrounding masturbati0n is the idea that it can make a person’s peni_s bigger or smaller.
However, Medical News Today reports that these myths can worsen anxiety in people who already have issues with the size of their peni_s.
Several other myths suggest masturbati0n can lead to adverse effects on different aspects of health.
There is no scientific evidence that masturbati0n has any permanent effect on peni_s size. Masturbati0n does lead to an erecti0n that increases the size of the peni_s, but this is only temporary.
The peni_s will return to normal size after ejaculati0n.
Peni_s size is mostly a result of genetic influences.
The peni_s grows throughout puberty and sometimes for a few years after. For most, the peni_s will stop growing around the ages of 18 or 19.
Testosterone is an essential hormone for se_xual functioning and development. During puber_ty, testoster0ne levels increase and may contribute towards peni_s growth.
Testoster0ne levels also vary during masturbati0n. However, these changes are minimal and have no long-term impact. Testoster0ne levels return to normal soon after ejaculati0n.
As both peni_s growth and masturbati0n have an association with testoster0ne levels, this could explain the misconception that masturbati0n affects peni_s size. But that is all it is — a myth and misconception.
Another myth links masturbati0n with acne. It is unclear what causes acne, but it may relate to hormonal changes during puberty.
Other myths link masturbati0n to sperm count or infertility and impotence in later life.
Again, there is a lack of reliable evidence supporting these claims.
Many companies sell lotions, ointments, and other products to increase peni_s size. However, there is little evidence supporting these products.
A review in 2019 assessed 21 different methods to increase peni_s size in over 1,000 men. The study included both surgical and non-surgical options. They found that there was little high-quality evidence proving that these methods worked.
Peni_s surgery can extend the length or girth of the peni_s. This typically involves taking fat or other tissues from different parts of the body and inserting them into the peni_s. The results of these surgeries vary and can lead to complications, such as se_xual dysfunction.
