User :   Hi! My fiancee and I are wondering about something? When his penis is erect, it varies in size.
User :   Hello???
Doctor :   hi
Doctor :   Dr. XXXXXXXX here.
Doctor :   please describe your problem in detail.
User :   Hi XXX, can you answer that question for us?
User :   Well, when he is aroused and erect his penis varies in size
Doctor :   what is the size of penis in flaccid and in erect state?
Doctor :   on an average what is the size in erect state?
User :   He has no problem getting an erection, no sex problems, just that sometimes it is way larger than other times
User :   flaccid size would be about 4
Doctor :   sometime variations can happen to penis size depending on the state of arousal.
User :   erect size varies from 6-8.75
Doctor :   ok, as long as he is not having problems with erection, maintaining and erection and in ejaculation, do not worry about it.
User :   his penis is always very hard, does not seem to be due to the lack of blood flow
User :   Is this common? I have never seen anything like this before! It a very huge difference
Doctor :   no, the blood flow will be the same, the size might vary depending on how much he is aroused, if he is not mentally prepared very much for intercourse, or has some stress going on behind his mind, the size will be less
User :   he says his arousal don't seem to be different
Doctor :   it is not that very common, but is known to happen in men. it is not very often documented.
Doctor :   hence there is no reliable data to support this
Doctor :   if you feel his arousal is same all the time, but the size varies, then get a check done once by a Urologist / Andrologist
User :   and for me it is really a big difference
Doctor :   to make sure that it is fine, it will also help to put both your minds to rest
User :   he actually brought up being checked today, does it sound like it could be a problem?
Doctor :   yes, for a woman, the difference in size and girth both matter, so such difference will be worrisome in the beginning
User :   it's not a bad problem to have, lol
Doctor :   as I said, as long as he is not having problems with erection, maintaining and erection and in ejaculation, do not worry about it.
Doctor :   but if you feel his arousal is same all the time, but the size varies, then get a check done once by a Urologist / Andrologist
User :   The flaccid size varies as well
Doctor :   how much does that vary? usually it can vary due to temperature changes and also the amount of arousal he might feel in the flaccid satte
Doctor :   *state
Doctor :   about 1-2 cm variation in flaccid state is considered normal
User :   he says about 2 inches
Doctor :   have you observed him in flaccid state? have you noticed such a difference?
User :   yes we have both noticed the difference
Doctor :   ok, then i would recommend an examination done once by a Urologist / Andrologist
Doctor :   to make sure that there is nothing to worry and that what he is having is normal
User :   I have checked every where online and there is nothing on this any where!!
User :   I have never seen anything like this before
Doctor :   yes, as I said, these are not often documented, so there is no data to support this
Doctor :   and most often these are normal in men.
Doctor :   have you followed what I said?
User :   yes I have
Doctor :   is there anything else you would like to ask me?
User :   nope, I think that is it, thank you
