Question: Hello I had a question about the penis

 bdlo - Mon Nov 22, 2004 12:47 pm

I was wondering are all these claims of making the penis larger true? Is it physically possible to do this? If so, how so?

As well I wanted to ask when I have an erection, I see that my penis is larger some days than other days, not by a little amount either, by a substantial amount. Can you please tell me why this is?

anyone, someone know about this problem?

in regards to the penis enlargment, from what i have heard, it only changes the apperance of a non erect penis.

as for you varying size of erection, does the skin retract the same amount each time? because if it doesnt it may make your penis look a different size at diff times...

wait and see what one of the online docs say though.

User avatar Hello:
Unfortunately, what we are born with is what we are stuck with. The reason the penis becomes erect is that it fills the spongy tissue in it with blood. If there is an increase in the blood flow, the penis will appear larger. However, drugs to increase the blood flow can be dangerous especially for individuals with hypertension or coronary disease. Before taking any "medications", prescribed or not, it is important to have a thorough checkup by your doctor. After all the purpose of having a large penis is to stay alive to enjoy it. :wink:
