My penis is too small. Can you please tell me, what I do?
parts of the penis are the root, the body, the shaft skin and the foreskin. The size of the penis is different at different times, as the measurement varies due to the time of the day, room temperature, arousal time and in sexual activity. The growth of the penis takes place from infancy to the age of five and again a year before puberty that is around the age of twelve up to the age of seventeen. There are several facts concerning the size of the pennies in men. Here you have some of the key points which would let you have an idea regarding the average size of the pennies in men. ? In most cases women have no worries regarding the size of the pennies. They are simply unaware of the fact. Men are more worried regarding the size and thickness of the pennies. ? More than forty five percent of men have small pennies. This is the general pennies fact in case of men and this has got to do with the normal sexual life of men. ? Several studies have revealed that the flaccid length of the pennies is from seven to ten centimetres. This is the average size of the pennies in men. ? When the pennies get erected the length of the same extends to 12 to 16 centimetres and the erected circumference is around 12 centimetres. the Size of penis be increased There are no creams, pills, exercises or medicines that can increase the size of the penis. Surgery is the only cure in cases when the total length of the penis remains 3 inches when erect. This is no full proof treatment. There are many methods recommended to enlarge the size of the penis. These include some non-surgical methods like stretching by hand, mechanical devices or attachment of weights or with the use of vacuum pumps. All these methods are very risky as the inner tissues of the penis are very delicate and can be damaged by wrong handling of the penis. The results are also not very positive.

Erectile Dysfunction Prevention

ED can be caused by a variety of factors, including certain medications, injuries, chronic diseases and mental disorders, and even drug use. Although not all ED is preventable, there are things that you can do to reduce your risk of ED.

Lead a Healthy Lifestyle
Whole body health contributes to sexual health. It is important to keep your arteries and nerves healthy to maintain good circulation and prevent damage later on.

Poor diet and exercise and unhealthy behaviors can increase your risk for ED, as well as other health conditions. There are number of lifestyle changes that can help you stay healthy. To reduce your risk of ED, consider:

losing weight
exercising regularly
eating well
quitting smoking
avoiding excessive alcohol use

Control Your Chronic Illness
Chronic diseases are some of the major causes of ED. Cardiovascular disease and diabetes significantly increase ED risk in older men. Therefore, it is important to control chronic diseases by taking all medications as directed and leading a healthier lifestyle. Doing so can help you maintain functional erections.

You’ll want to:

regulate your blood sugar
try to keep blood pressure at healthy levels
manage your cholesterol through diet and medication, if needed
take medications for chronic conditions, if needed
In addition to the aforementioned diseases and conditions, prostate disorders—specifically, prostate cancer and treatment—often cause ED. Surgery to remove the prostate gland and surrounding tissues, called a radical prostatectomy, can often damage nerves and tissues near the penis, which can lead to ED. However, studies have found that getting erections after surgery can help prevent ED in the future.

Although controversial, penile rehabilitation seems to improve the health of the penile tissue. It appears to improve blood flow and prevent scarring.

Additional research has shown that regular intercourse—at least once per week—reduced the risk for developing ED in men aged 55 to 75.

Communication is Key
No matter the cause of your ED, open, honest communication is crucial for treatment and prevention. ED can undoubtedly affect your sex life and relationships, and creates a significant amount of stress. However, failing to manage that stress can actually exacerbate ED. Talking to your partner about what you are experiencing can help alleviate stress and may also help you and your partner find other forms of intimacy while you are seeking treatment for ED.

While ED can be an uncomfortable or potentially embarrassing subject, having a frank discussion about your symptoms with your doctor is the first step towards finding treatment.

Hi. If you become unconscious or feel dizzy, then it is low bp problem. Otherwise, just bp in lower range with no above said problems, then that bp is considered normal. Infact the lower the bp, the better it is. You need to eat fruits, green vegetable and all healthy things to get your hemoglobin up. Take care.

Can you people tell about having dry dark grapes water by early morning? Is have any side effects?
Grape is LIKELY SAFE when consumed in amounts commonly found in foods. Grape is POSSIBLY SAFE when taken by mouth in medicinal amounts. Grape seed extracts have been used safely in studies for up to 14 weeks. Eating large quantities of grapes, dried grapes, raisins, or sultanas might cause diarrhea. Some people have allergic reactions to grapes and grape products. Some other potential side effects include stomach upset, indigestion, nausea, vomiting, cough, dry mouth, sore throat, infections, headache, and muscular problems. Special Precautions & Warnings: Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Not enough is known about the use of grape in medicinal amounts (supplements or amounts that are higher than normal food amounts) during pregnancy and breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use. Bleeding conditions: Grape might slow blood clotting. Taking grape might increase the chances of bruising and bleeding in people with bleeding conditions. However, there are no reports of this occurring in humans. Surgery: Grape might slow blood clotting. It might cause extra bleeding during and after surgery. Stop using medicinal amounts of grape at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user. You are suffering from a clinical condition called phimosis. The conventional method to get rid of phimosis is surgery. But if you don't want to undergo surgery there is a way to cure it. Apply local anaesthetic gel like lidocaine gel at the point where the foreskin is attached at the bottom of the head of penis. Try to pull the foreskin backward to a little extent. Don't hurt yourself during pulling the foreskin backwards. Repeat the process daily. You will get rid of your problem within 1 month.
