Doctor :   Let me explain to you.
Doctor :   Sexual problems are caused primarily by certain factors.
User :   ok
Doctor :   And based on the scientific facts proved by previous research's, masturbation is not one among them.
User :   i have heard.
Doctor :   This has been a constant debate, with ayurvedic doctors believing excess masturbation can lead to reduction in sperm counts and sperm morphology.
Doctor :   As a medical doctor practising allopathy, I am not sure how much this is correct.
User :   ok
Doctor :   So if you are doubtful, then you can go ahead and get a semen analysis.

User :   my 2nd question

Doctor :   Penis structure and functions are a function of genes.
Doctor :   This again are modified by hormones, blood flow and nerves.
User :   ok
Doctor :   These factor's have an effect on the size of the penis, majorly during puberty.
Doctor :   Since you have crossed puberty, very less can be done with regards to the size of the penis.

Doctor :   in the erected state is sufficient for normal sexual functioning.

Doctor :   helping you to have a good erection and a sustained erection.
Doctor :   they are verified.
Doctor :   But there effects on increasing the size of penis both in non erect state and erect state are doubtful.
User :   side effects?
Doctor :   Erection enhancing pills can make your penis slightly bigger during erection, but this change is insignificant.
Doctor :   Erection enhancing pills have lot of side effects,
Doctor :   the side effects are majorly on the heart,
Doctor :   they can cause high blood pressure, and if the heart is unstable,
Doctor :   it can lead to heart attacks or heart failures.
Doctor :   Nutritional supplements don't have serious side effects.
User :   ok my penis on erection is 15 cms .. but erection is not quite long.......

Doctor :   Medical drugs belonging to the class of sympathomimetics are available both as oral drugs and injections.
Doctor :   They are taken before an sexual act,
Doctor :   they act on the blood vessels which help in making penis stronger and harder,

Doctor :   Regarding devices,
Doctor :   there are certain devices such as penile rings/cock rings, external vacuum pumps
