User :   UK
Doctor :   Can u mention your height , weight ?

User :   and weight around 17stones
User :   or mayb less i am not exactly sure
Doctor :   can u mention the size of the penis both in flaccid state and erect state ?
User :   ok no this is the hard part
User :   now when my penis is flaccid
User :   it goes inside
User :   i thiink i have excess fat around it
User :   but it tucks in
User :   and while erect its around 2.5 inches
Doctor :   you mean to say the size in the erect size, is 2.5 inches ?
User :   yes
Doctor :   Have u been sexually active ?
User :   no not yet
Doctor :   do you masturbate ?
User :   yes
Doctor :   do u feel that the erection is strong when u masturbate ?
User :   yes
User :   its really hard
Doctor :   ok
User :   sorry 2.5 to 3 inches
Doctor :   the average size of the normal erect penis , is in the range of 2.5 inches to 5.5 inches
User :   ok but while flaccid i dont no why it tucks in
Doctor :   So by the histoey provided u seem to be having the lower part of the normal range
User :   yes i have what you call' 5 alpha reductase deficiency
Doctor :   that should not be any major problem, as in case there is a lot of pubic fat, then it may be appearing that way
User :   right ok so with the problem mentioned above and from what i told you there are two questions which arise in my head
Doctor :   ok
User :   firstly can i satisfy a girl
User :   and secondly can i have children
Doctor :   sexual satisfaction can be achieved by a no of ways.
User :   ok i understand
Doctor :   1. te initial 1.5 inches of the vagina are the most stimulative part and stimulating this area should not be a problem for u
User :   right ok
Doctor :   second , fetrtility is nothing associated with penis size
Doctor :   you can do a semen analysis to check the semen quality ans sperm count and this will givve an idea about ur fertility
User :   oh yes i didnt think of that
User :   thanks
User :   ok now another thing
User :   my cousin has the same condition as me but i think he is a little worse of then me
User :   when he was born the doctors had assumed he was a girl
User :   so for the first 9 months his family thought he was a girl and only after that they realised he was a boy
User :   with me i had a similar condition but doctors new iwas a boy from the get go
Doctor :   the conditon 5 alpha reductase deficiency , could lead to a no of hormonal changes and cause variation in size of the genetala
Doctor :   the severity can vary in diff patients
User :   ofcourse
User :   and also i have veery little facial hair
User :   from reading and doing a bit of research i understand it is because of my condition
Doctor :   thats right
User :   is there anything i can do to rectify that
Doctor :   for the penis size what u can do is removal of the excess pubic fat which can increase the size of the penis visually
User :   ok and to increase facial hair
User :   ?
Doctor :   increasing facial hair would not be easy as this is due to an enzyme deficiency
Doctor :   but you can consult an endocrinologist if you need testosterone supplements
Doctor :   and this can help you in some way
