Before you and your partner start treatment for infertility, talk about how far you want to go. For example, you may want to try medication but do not want to have surgery. While you may rethink this end point during your treatment, it’s a good idea to have an idea where you want to draw the line. Many couples do not think about this in the beginning and become emotionally and financially drained from trying a series of treatments.
Treatment for fertility can also be quite expensive, and insurance often does not cover these expenses. If cost is a concern for you, find out how much medications and procedures cost and if your insurance covers any costs. Talk with your partner about what you can afford.
Keep in mind that some infertility problems are more easily treated than others. In general, as a women ages, especially after 35, her chances of getting pregnant decrease and her risk of miscarriage markedly increases.
If you are 35 or older, your doctor may recommend that you skip some of the steps younger couples usually take because your chances of having a baby decrease with each passing year.
Also, understand that even if you are able to get pregnant, no treatment can guarantee a healthy baby. On the other hand, scientists in this field have made many advances that have helped millions of couples have babies.
Your doctor will first try to find why you have not been able to get pregnant. He or she will do tests to see where the problem lies. Sometimes doctors do not find a problem with either the man or the woman and don't know why a woman cannot get pregnant.
Treatment for female infertility
Problems with ovulating. If your doctor finds that you have a problem with ovulating, he or she may first recommend that you try the medication clomiphene (Clomid, Serophene, Milophene). This medicine (which you take as a pill) stimulates your ovaries to release eggs, thereby improving your chances of getting pregnant. It is often tried first because it is considered safe and effective.
Clomiphene has more side effects than hormonal shots, such as Pregnyl and Profasi, but clomiphene costs less, has a lower risk of ovarian hyper stimulation syndrome, and is less likely to result in a pregnancy with more than one baby.
If you're not ovulating because of a condition called polytheistic ovary syndrome (PCOS), your doctor might suggest you take a drug called metformin in combination with clomiphene. For more information, see treatment of women with polytheistic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
Unfortunately, clomiphene does not always work. Typically, hormone shots are the next medication tried. You and your partner can weigh the risks and benefits of proceeding to this next step. You start the first series of daily shots at the beginning of your menstrual cycle. You will probably have mild side effects, such as feeling sick to your stomach and bloating. Some women have more serious side effects due to multiple, large ovarian cysts (ovarian hyper stimulation syndrome). While clomiphene increases your chance of having twins or triplets (especially twins), women who take hormonal injections are even more likely to have twins, triplets, or more babies.
Unexplained infertility. If your doctor cannot find out why you and your partner have not been able to get pregnant, he or she may start out by giving you clomiphene. The steps for treating infertility are essentially the same as for women who have ovulation problems. The next step is to try hormone injections. However, at this step your doctor may recommend insemination, putting the sperm directly into the uterus, to improve your chances of getting pregnant. If these treatments don't work, your next step is deciding whether to have IVF (in vitro fertilization).
Blocked or damaged tubes. Your doctor may do tests to check your fallopian tubes. Blocked or damaged tubes can prevent the egg from being fertilized by the sperm. If the blockage of your tubes is slight, your doctor might recommend tubal surgery to try to correct the damage. In these cases, between 20% and 60% of women have successful pregnancies after the surgery, depending on what part of the tube was blocked.6 However, in many cases, doctors recommend skipping tubal surgery and having IVF for more severe blockages. IVF is also often recommended first for women over 34 (regardless of the type of blockage) because tubal surgery and natural conception may use up precious time if in vitro fertilization might be used later.
* Should I have a tubal procedure or in vitro fertilization for tubal infertility?
Endomorphisms. If you have mild to moderate endomorphisms that seems to be the main reason for your infertility, your doctor may use laparoscopic surgery to remove geometrical tissue growth. If surgery does not work, or if you have severe endometriosis, you will need to decide whether to try in vitro fertilization, commonly called IVF. However, understand that IVF doesn't work as well for women with endometriosis as with other causes of infertility.
For more information about endomorphisms, see the topic Endomorphisms.
In vitro fertilization (IVF). Many couples who have problems getting pregnant arrive at a common point: They must decide whether they want to try IVF. IVF is the most common form of a group of similar procedures called assisted reproductive technology, or ART. If you have not already considered adoption, this might be a time to think about it. Some couples decide to spend their resources on adoption instead of IVF at this point. Other couples see IVF as the best option. Of course, this is a decision that takes a lot of soul searching.
For more than a year, I've been writing about my cooking and eating habits in the "Muscle Chow" column. I used to get asked about exercises. Now it's questions like "Did you ever cheat, or have you always eaten perfectly?" Well, sure I've cheated. How would I know what good eating is if I'd never eaten badly?
I had a healthy start, though. Growing up, we never had cookies in the house, we never snacked on chips or sugary cereals, and soda wasn't allowed past the front door. My parents introduced tons of healthy foods into my life—and I'm doing the same for my kids. I never knew our family was different until I saw the cookie jar on the counter one day at my grade-school friend Vince's house. "You mean you can take a cookie whenever you want?" And yes, I headed for that cookie jar every time I went to Vince's. My parents' strict approach to food meant I could afford—and savor—such a treat.
When I began training and competing in bodybuilding contests, I realized that my diet was my best edge on the competition. Over the years, I've learned which foods accelerate or slow my gains. I think the right nutritional strategy can help any man build the body he wants. But, as I've said, that's only the first question. There are plenty more, like the ones on these pages, which I've received through MensHealth.com since I started writing the column. So here are my answers—everything you need to know about creating a model meal plan.
Is there a secret to your meal plan? My diet revolves around protein intake. It's the touchstone that determines how many carbohydrates I'll eat in a given meal or snack. I average out my meals and snacks over the course of a day, but the final percentages I like to hit are about 35 percent protein, 55 percent carbs, and 10 percent fat. I stick to white-meat animal proteins like chicken (canned or regular), fish (including canned tuna and sardines), turkey breast, shrimp, oysters, and lobster. Chicken, fish, and turkey probably make up 50 percent of my daily protein. I rotate the rest about once every 10 days. Other protein mainstays include whey-protein powders, eggs (mostly egg whites), yogurt, cottage cheese, and unsalted nuts.
Does the rest of your family eat what you eat? It's funny how many people ask what my kids eat. Readers must think I'm this tyrant who's force-feeding his children carrot juice, spinach salads, and unsweetened oatmeal.
I just want my kids to have an understanding of which foods are good for them and which ones aren't the best choices. In the end, my wife and kids pretty much eat what I eat. And the kids eat at McDonald's once in a while. It's like me with Vince's cookie jar—as long as they're eating healthfully most of the time, an occasional fast-food burger won't hurt them.
What do you have lying around the kitchen for a quick snack? There's fruit everywhere. On the counter, I keep apples, pears, peaches, nectarines, oranges (I live in Miami), apricots, bananas, and whatever else is in season. (I try to buy organic.)
In the fridge, cantaloupe, watermelon, berries, and grapes. There's nothing wrong with impulsively munching on any of these.
What's a typical weeknight dinner for you? It's always simple—that's the key to consistently eating well. Poached salmon with steamed vegetables is about as easy to make as a peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwich, and it's a fast way to get protein, creatine, essential fatty acids, glutamine, and phytonutrients into your diet. This kind of meal is easy and offers a nice, balanced nutritional profile. Remember to keep an eye on your portions, using your palm as a simple gauge to measure a single serving. One palm for protein, two palms for vegetables, one palm for a starch, and you have a nice, balanced meal.

Some of us have good memories of our exes. Some of us think our exes are emotional wrecks who left 9-inch scars on our psyches. And some of us think of our exes often enough to drunk dial them every Saturday around 2 a.m. But here's the thing about that phone call, or occasional e-mail, or what-the-hey coffee meetings: A recent study from the University of Arizona showed that every time you communicate with someone you're trying to get over-no matter what way you did it-your overall level of happiness drops one percent.
On one level, many men and women have an overwhelming urge to reconnect with the person they used to date/love/sleep with. How much so? In the Men, Love ; Sex poll, 73 percent of men think about "the one who got away" at least sometimes (with nearly a quarter of men saying they think about her a lot or all of the time). On another level, we know deep down that taking those thoughts a step further can be pretty darn dangerous. So-as we try to balance the conflicting good and bad feelings about our exes-we wrestle with some hefty questions. Should you sleep with your ex? Does he want you back? What the hell did she do with my Beatles collection? The answers to some of those "ex"-cellent questions...
Should you sleep with your ex?
If both exes are unattached and mature-and they're not hurting anybody else or starring in major motion pictures with suspected lovers-then hanging out and hooking up can be okay. There's no doubt that ex sex can be more explosive than a LaDanian Tomlinson burst for the end zone. Why? Because you know the nuances and desires and hot spots of each other's body without the pressure to perform that you'd have early on in a relationship, but also minus the sluggishness of a fading one.
Now, a lot of men like lurking in the murky transitional spaces between relationships-meaning that he'll be up for any no-strings bedroom behavior that she's on board with. But if it happens more than a couple of times, chances are emotions will kick back in-for either or both of you. So if your ex starts calling you on a frequent basis-even just to say, "Thanks for the meaningless sex"-it's probably time to bail. You're with someone you don't love, and that can prevent you from finding and committing to someone you do love. And that makes the romp a kind of sexual channel surf--something that wastes time you'll never get back.
Can you be friends with your ex?
In theory, it should work out fine. While many women are good at separating romance from friendship, it's different for men. (Almost 50 percent of men say they couldn't have a good friend with breasts, whether or not she was an ex.) For a guy, a friend is someone you play golf with, drink beer with, and argue over sports with. An ex is someone who helped make your bed and lie in it. It's tough for guys to think of the same woman he had Friday night fantasies with as one he'll talk fantasy football with.
That doesn't mean a man can't be friends with women, but it's nearly impossible for a man to be friends with an ex-girlfriend, especially when his life includes his next girlfriend. What's more, if he wasn't responsible for ending the relationship in the first place, it's tough to be with someone who took a long look at you and decided to try their luck elsewhere.

If you have a penis of small size, you must also suffer to come or ejaculate too quickly without worrying if your associate reaches an orgasm or not. Although this condition can be caused by several factors, such as the effort or the emotions paramount, there is no doubt which classify and the sexual execution would be always considered and affected. With all these problems and concern, which make you do think yourselves you should you make afterwards? The best council of the doctors must obtain the most effective tool for your goal of the enlarging of the penis. But if you hate pumps of virility or a surgery of the enlarging of virility, you can deliver yourselves to the supplements or the pills like VigRX Plus. The supplements are safe of 100%, mainly because of their normal ingredients. Usually, of the supplements of the enlarging of the virility of the grasses are made, which come from the countries like South America and China, and are made with confidence even by the medical community.
Majority of the men who want to have a perfect sexual execution, the need to have large a penis. The men worry about the size because they know that a tiny penis has certain disadvantages and can really have an impact on the way of which they carry out in the bed. For example, longer penis can of construction lasts than smaller. The majority of the men encounter problems of construction such as the erectile dysfunction, which also indicated under the name of a weak construction. If you suffer from this anomaly and you cannot obtain it to the top as under consideration in the bed your associate will seek another companion around the next time. On the one hand, if you did it in support a construction but just the slope, the situation is always a symptom of a weak construction and can revilement carry out your friend to find other somebody to play with. The same thing could also be known as if you examine premature ejaculation.
Sex and sexuality communicate a great deal: affection, love, esteem, warmth, sharing, and bonding. These gifts are as much the right of older adults as they are of those who are much younger.
Three aspects of sexuality are covered in this topic: the changes that come with aging, suggestions on how to adjust to these changes, and information about sexually transmitted diseases.
In most healthy adults, pleasure and interest in sex do not diminish with age. Age alone is no reason to change the sexual practices that you have enjoyed throughout your life. However, you may have to make a few minor adjustments to accommodate any physical limitations you may have or the effects of certain illnesses or medications.
Cultural and Psychological Factors
In addition to physical changes, there are cultural and psychological factors that affect sexuality in later years. For example, in our culture, sexuality is equated with youthful looks and youthful vigor. Too many people seem to think that as a person ages, he or she becomes less desirable and less of a sexual being. Older adults may accept this stereotype and buy into the notion that they are not permitted or expected to be sexual.
Joy in sex and loving knows no age barriers. Almost everyone has the capacity to find lifelong pleasure in sex. To believe in the myth that older people have no interest in sex is to miss out on wonderful possibilities.
Being single through choice, divorce, or widowhood can present a problem as well. As you get older, you may not have as many people in your age group to choose from for partners. Women and men who are single may not know how to deal with their sexual feelings. Generally speaking, it is better to express your desires than to suppress them until you are no longer aware that they exist.
Physical and emotional needs change with time and circumstance. Intimacy and sexuality may or may not be important to you. The issue here is one of choice. If you freely decide that sex is no longer right for you, then that is the correct decision. It is possible to live a fulfilling life without sex. However, if you choose to continue enjoying your sexuality, you deserve support and encouragement. You may still find uncharted sensual territories to explore.
Most cases of premature ejaculation do not have a clear cause. With sexual experience and age, men often learn to delay orgasm. Premature ejaculation may occur with a new partner, only in certain sexual situations, or if it has been a long time since the last ejaculation. Psychological factors such as anxiety, guilt, or depression can cause premature ejaculation. In some cases, premature ejaculation may be related to an underlying medical cause such as hormonal problems, injury, or a side effect of certain medicines.
What are the symptoms?
The main symptom of premature ejaculation is an uncontrolled ejaculation either before or shortly after intercourse begins. Ejaculation occurs before the person wishes it, with minimal sexual stimulation.
How is premature ejaculation diagnosed?
Your health professional will discuss your medical and sexual history with you and conduct a thorough physical examination. Your doctor may want to talk to your partner as well. Because premature ejaculation can have many causes, your health professional may order laboratory tests to rule out any underlying medical problem.
How is it treated?
In many cases, premature ejaculation resolves on its own over time without the need for medical treatment. Practicing relaxation techniques or using distraction methods may help you delay ejaculation. For some men, stopping or cutting down on the use of alcohol, tobacco, or illegal drugs may improve their ability to control ejaculation.
Your health professional may recommend that you and your partner practice specific techniques to help delay ejaculation. These techniques may involve identifying and controlling the sensations that lead up to ejaculation and communicating to slow or stop stimulation. Other options include using a condom to reduce sensation to the penis or trying a different position (such as lying on your back) during intercourse. Counseling or behavioral therapy may help reduce anxiety related to premature ejaculation.Certain antidepressant medicines called selective serotonin re uptake inhibitors (SSRIs), such as fluoxetine (Prozac), paroxetine (Paxil), and sertraline (Zoloft), are sometimes used to treat premature ejaculation. These medicines are used because a side effect of SSRIs is inhibited orgasm, which helps delay ejaculation. The use of SSRIs for the treatment of premature ejaculation is not related to depression and is considered an "off-label" use

In women suffering from sexual dysfunction as a result of antidepressant use, this side effect may be relieved by sildanafel, more commonly known as the commercially available Viagra. This was published in an article released on July 22, 2008 in JAMA.
The family of selective seratonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) is a group of antidepressants which prevent the re absorption of the neurotransmitter seratonin into neurons, thus increasing the extracellular concentration of the chemical. They form the most commonly prescribed medications for outpatients between 18 and 65 years, constituting 90% of the 180 million antidepressant prescriptions filled the US.
The authors point out a commonly experienced side effect of SSRI treatment: sexual dysfunction. "Antidepressant treatment associated sexual dysfunction is estimated to occur in 30 percent to 70 percent of men and women treated for major depression with first- or second-generation agents, a principal reason for a 3-fold increased risk of non adherence that approaches 70 percent in the first months of treatment and leads to increased relapse, recurrence, disability, and resource utilization by affected patients," they write. Previously, no randomized controlled trials have demonstrated treatment methods that are effective for sexual dysfunction in women due to SSRI use.
To examine this concept, H. George Nurnberg, M.D., of the University of New Mexico School of Medicine, Albuquerque, N.M., and colleagues compared sildenafil to that of a placebo for treatment of SSRI related sexual dysfunction, such as lack of arousal or delayed orgasm. A total 98 women were examined, with an average age of 37 years, all of whom had major depression which was in remission, between September 2003 and January 2007 at seven research centers in the United States. Study subjects were assigned randomly to one of two groups: 49 patients were given sildenafil , and 49 were given a placebo. Both treatments had a flexible dose, beginning at 50 mg and adjustable to 100 mg, between one and two hours before anticipated sexual activity for 8 weeks
In total, 73% of women taking placebo reported no improvement with treatment, in comparison with 25% of women taking sildenafil. When rated by a clinicial for severity improvement, women in the test group showed a greater improvement in sexual function than the women in the placebo group. No patients withdrew from the study due to serious adverse effects, though headache, flushing, and indigestion were frequently reported.
The authors indicate that this is an important finding for women's health in general. They write: "These findings are important not only because women experience major depressive disorder at nearly double the rate of men and because they experience greater resulting sexual dysfunction than men but also because it establishes that selective phosphorescence type 5 inhibitors [such as sildenafil] are effective in both sexes for this purpose. By treating this bothersome treatment-associated adverse effect in patients who have been effectively treated for depression, but need to continue on their medication to avoid relapse or recurrence, patients can remain antidepressant-adherent, reduce the current high rates of premature medication discontinuation, and improve depression disease management outcomes."
Stage 1 : Passion begins with arousal which requires stimulation of our pines gland, in the brain.
Once the Pines gland is activated, sex hormones flood the body producing what is commonly termed, "Turning on or Arousing".
Stage 2 : The Penis is a mass of erectile tissue with large inter spaces capable of being distended with blood. Nitric Oxide is responsible for a myriad of bodily functions. One of these functions is the increase blood flow to the genital areas and the onset of an erection.
Stage 3 : Kwakiutl causes muscular changes leading to the relaxation of the Corpus Cavernous via the release of Nitric Oxide resulting in an erection. Kwakiutl will allow an erection to be maintained for a longer period of time.
The herbs naturally provide nutrients for the sexual organs, which increase the blood flow, muscle strength, length and girth; giving you a larger size before, during and after arousal; as well as enabling you to further develop your partner's sexual sensitivity developing your intimacy confidence and sexual pleasure. Botanical extracts such as Muira Puama have an usually high level of an important neuro - transmitter. This has a positive effect on the pineal gland. TThe result is a heightened sensuality, the release of several sex hormones, and the initiating of the sexual response. Because Horn's ingredients enable a 'system recharge' that remains in your system for 24 hours, it is a great product for those people who seek to engage in longer and more frequent sexually active lifestyles.
Horn is a cheaper herbal alternative to Viagra and an inexpensive solution for erection problems. Because no prescription is required, it can be conveniently ordered online or via the telephone. Also receive a discreet and secure service that will ensure that your order will be received subtly and conveniently.
More and more men are concerned over the issue of ejaculation, prolonged ejaculation, increased volumes of sperm produced during ejaculation can have a marked effect on the intensity and duration of a male orgasm. Many men are hesitant and indeed reluctant to use such products however, for fear of the potential side effects they may have on their health. There is a huge selection of male enhancement products on the market currently, though the quantity does not match the quality and sadly, the generic male enhancer does not carry with it a terribly good reputation or image
Amongst the drugs that are accessible in the market, Semen ax is considered to be the best one possible, Semen ax then gives the best of both worlds, providing a solution to ejaculation issues, whilst not having harmful side effects. This Semen ax review will now outline the advantages of Semen ax pills and just how and why this body supplement is so effective.
What is Semen ax?
A significant increase in the volume of sperm is helped to be produced by Semen ax, this has the effect of stronger contractions (of the penis) allowing for a more efficient release and more satisfying and intense orgasm for both partners. Furthermore, Semen ax are natural pills that have been approved by doctors to improve the potency or fertility in men, providing a real solution with no drawbacks or “hidden catches” to your health.

If you knew an exercise that was completely safe and could enlarge your penis size dramatically, would you try it? I'm going to assume your answer is yes, and tell you about jellying. The jell is an exercise that promotes penis growth through a natural stimulation.
What Is The Jelq?
The jelq is a daily exercise performed by hand to increase penis length and girth. Jelling is often referred to as milking for its milk-like motion on the penis. Jelling is performed in a flaccid (semi-erect) state. The jelq technique builds pressure on the penis and it's smooth muscle, blood vessels, and other tissues. After time, the pressure causes the penis to expand and enlarge. The exercise itself can be compared to working out any other muscle, but best results come with the mastering of the technique. As you get better at jelling, there are more advanced exercises that will enhance growth.
Benefits Of Jelqing!
The benefits jelqing can have are numerous. The physical benefits include: increase in penis length and girth, harder erections, and you can also gain control of ejaculations. The mental benefits include: the self-gratification attained from pleasing your partner, and a big boost in self-confidence. The best part is the jelqing exercise is completely safe, where as pills, pumps, and surgery can be very dangerous. Jelqing is safe, very effective,and cost efficient.!
Men would be interested to know that there are proved ways to ejaculate semen maximally. Ejaculation plays a very important role in every man's sexual encounter. Therefore, it is just normal to pay much attention to the amount of semen a man can ejaculate. More male ejaculate means more sexual satisfaction and a happier and more fulfilling sex life.
Science had developed breakthrough products that are directly geared towards effective ways to ejaculate semen maximally. These products are called volume enhancers which fall under the sex enhancers.
They come in pill form and are had been tested and carefully studied by certified professionals. Volume enhancers are made up of a blend of amino acid and herbs which had been the product of research made by professionals who continuously study ways to improve a man's potency and sexual abilities.
Volume enhancers are proven and tested to increase the amount of semen a man can ejaculate. Aside from increasing male ejaculate, these volume enhancing pills also guarantee other benefits such as; increased sexual energy and desire, better stamina, longer and more intense orgasms while ensuring a man's sexual health. The result is a totally satisfying sexual experience and explosive orgasm that will surely blow a woman away.
In addition to the question of penis size, many are surprised to hear that many men wonder whether or not women prefer men that ejaculate more. As it turns out, it is a culmination of several criteria that a woman either consciously or subconsciously utilizes to judge a man's sexual prowess and whether they outright know it or not, women do take the amount of ejaculate that a man produces into consideration.
Beauty and sex appeal standards are not as skin-deep as we may think. At least, in regards to the beholder. As it turns out, men and women get their opinion of beauty and virility from their genes as much as their eyes and self-made opinions. Humans are programmed to view certain criteria of the opposite sex as important indicators to their worth as a mate. Since larger amounts of ejaculate almost always translates into more sperm, it is a logical theory that most women prefer men who expel more ejaculate on an evolutionary, breeding level. Just like between the choices of a large penis, a hairy chest, or a loud, booming voice, women view the amount of ejaculate as a factor in determining the breeding worth of a male.
On the surface, many women report that ejaculate is "messy" or "gross." However, their subconscious tells them that it is completely different. On the evolutionary, instinctual level, women are actually attracted to larger amounts of ejaculate simply because their primal mating instincts have made it clear that it is necessary to bear children.
Most men do not know whether they are capable of increasing the amount of ejaculate that they produce, but it is possible. All-natural and completely safe herbs such as Reishi Mushrooms and Musli have enabled men for thousands of years to increase their ejaculate amounts as well as their sexual performance.
There are also products available over-the-counter and by order that contain almost all elements known to man that elevate sperm counts and boost erection size and strength. VolumePills has become known worldwide to increase sperm counts up to 500% and sometimes even more, enabling its users to abandon the average and reach the top.
If you have a penis of small size, you must also suffer to come or ejaculate too quickly without worrying if your associate reaches an orgasm or not. Although this condition can be caused by several factors, such as the effort or the paramount emotions, there is no doubt which classify and the sexual execution would be always considered and affected. With all these problems and concern, which make you do think you that you should make you afterwards? The best council of the doctors must obtain the most effective tool for your goal of the enlarging of the penis. But if you hate pumps of virility or a surgery of the enlarging of virility, you can deliver yourselves to the supplements or the pills like Vig RX more.

If you're really worried that your penis is the wrong size, go and see your doctor.
If you're not happy about consulting your GP on such an intimate matter, you could see one of the medics who spend their entire day checking men's penises. You can find these doctors at:
- private 'well-man' clinics, but take care: a few of these are run by quacks
- NHS urology clinics
- NHS sexual medicine clinics
- NHS genitourinary medicine (GUM) clinics
- NHS family planning clinics, although these tend to be oriented towards women and don’t have much time to deal with males.
- Brook advisory clinics (for the under 25s).
Many companies claim they know how to enlarge your penis - for a price.
We have recently been to several medical conferences at which leading experts have spoken about penis size and penis enlargement.
Their opinions on the various methods that are so widely advertised to the public can be summed up as follows.
- Pills or patches for increasing penis size: a complete waste of time.
- Penile enlargement surgery: of uncertain value and sometimes dangerous.
- Penile enlargement exercises: probably pretty futile.
- Penile suction devices: probably of little use.
We've talked about the length of the penis in its ordinary non-erect state, but how long should it be when it's erect?
Interestingly, most penises are very much the same size when erect.
- The man whose non-erect penis is smallish will usually achieve about a 100 per cent increase in length during sexual excitement.
- The man whose non-erect penis is on the largish size will probably manage about a 75 per cent increase.
- This means the great majority of penises measure between 15cm and 18cm (6-7 inches) when erect, with the average figure being about 16.5cm (6.5 inches).
Sex and women
Virtually every man forgets that it doesn't matter how long or how short your penis is, because the vagina will accommodate itself to any length.
- The vagina of a woman who hasn't had a child is only 7.5cm (3 inches) long when she's not sexually excited. The figures for women who have had babies are only slightly different.
- Even when aroused, a woman's vagina usually extends only to a length of about 10cm (4 inches).
You're probably now wondering how the average man with an erection of six inches manages to insert his penis into the vagina at all.
The vagina has the most remarkable capacity for lengthening if something is introduced into it gradually.
So the exceptional man whose erect penis is eight inches long can still make love to any woman, providing he excites her properly and introduces his organ very slowly. If he does this, her vagina will lengthen by 150 or 200 per cent to accommodate him.
A non-erect penis usually measures between 8.5cm and 10.5cm (3-4 inches) from tip to base.
The average figure is about 9.5cm (3.75 inches), but this kind of precise measurement is rather valueless. Many factors can cause a temporary shrinkage of two inches or more, for instance cold weather or going swimming, so you needn't worry if you happen to fall short of the average figure.
Of course, it's true that some men have big penises and some have smaller ones, just as some men have small feet and some have big feet, but the measurement is not - repeat not - an index of virility.
Most people think that a tall man will usually have a large penis, but this is not entirely true. The distinguished American researchers Masters and Johnson measured the penile lengths of more than 300 men.
- The largest organ was 14 cm (5.5 inches) in the flaccid state. It belonged to a slim man who was 5' 7" tall (170 cm).
- The smallest penis measured 6cm (2.25 inches). It belonged to a fairly heavily built man of 5' 11" (180cm).
A question of perspective
The trouble is that every man sees his own penis in a foreshortened view. The angle at which you look down inevitably makes your penis seem shorter than it is.
But when you glance at another man's organ, there's no such foreshortening effect, so very often it'll look as though the other guy is slightly better endowed.
A lifetime of comparison of this sort (and virtually every male does a quick mental check on each naked man he sees) can easily make you feel a bit inadequate. But it's important to realise the facts about penis length.
Even in this supposedly enlightened century, men fret about penis size. Though the vast majority of guys have more than enough bulk to perform well as lovers, there is a widespread masculine obsession that 'more would be better'.
We get a constant flow of emails and letters from males who are worried that they are 'too small'. Vast sums of money can be made by exploiting this obsession, but other than surgery, there is little that is clinically prove to increase penis size.
Any woman reading this article may find it puzzling that so many men are concerned about the length of their penis and wish they had 'just a couple of inches more'. But that's the way that a lot of men are.
To the average man, his penis is, consciously or unconsciously, one of the most important things in the whole world. At an early age he discovers it and immediately becomes fascinated by it.
But then a note of uncertainty enters his mind: 'Isn't mine rather small?' Look at Dad's, look at big brother's, look at those in the men's changing room - and he asks himself if he will be as big as that.
And so he goes on through life, always a tiny bit sensitive about the size of his organ, always convinced that it would be nicer if it were just that little bit longer.
No matter how often it's written that penile size doesn't matter, and that women aren't attracted to a man because of the length of his organ, the average male continues to think the same way.
The average female cannot understand this obsession with penile measurement. So if you're a woman, never belittle a man's penis in bed, even as a joke, or say anything to indicate that you think it's small. The guy may take you seriously, and if he does, he'll be deeply hurt.
It is also worth noting two points about women:
- some women really dislike the idea of a large penis, and may be frightened by one that is too long.
- some women are much more impressed by the thickness of a penis, rather than its length. This is because some females like the sense of feeling stretched round the entrance to the vagina – so if a guy is quite broad at the base of his penis, this can feel very exciting and satisfying to such women
